Well if your looking for a quick and affordable way to lower your car than this would be it but the stock struts and shocks weren't designed for the stress of those lowering springs so the lifespan of the stock struts and shocks will decrease exponentially. In other words the stock struts and shocks will go sooner rather than later and than it will cost you just as much money if not more to just do it right the first time. There is nothing wrong going with lowering springs just know what your getting into thats all.

Truhart struts are such an affordable way to go that you might as well just buy them alongside the springs. They're certainly not Koni quality, but considering you get all 4 corners for about $300 the value is definitely there.

Would second this. Ride is surprisingly good for the price tag.

Got about 45k on my Truharts, still going strong.

D2 cuz they drop the most. If I could do it all over again. I would.
My poor Q300 scrapes enough on H&Rs! But like you said, I'd do it all over again. Mostly just because of how disgusting the coupes look on stock height, lowering is a necessity! If I had a sedan it might just get some HFPs.

That would have offended me a week or 2 ago
