H&R OE

Anybody have the H&R OE springs? Iím interested in seeing what the .75/.50 drop looks like on a sedan. I know, I know a lot of you like the ďslammedĒ look but Iím just looking for a subtle gap fill for my plus sized rims. A also live in Maine and donít feel like helping the state plow in the winter and I donít want to start messing with camber and new shocks $$$$$$

I also have been thinking about H&R OE springs since the car is not pushed very hard and is going to my wife and is a family car. I am also thinking of using either the 6MT or ACURA TL shocks with the TSX 17X7 wheels and the 27.2 & 20mm TL 6MT bars. The goal is to have a car that handles a little better, with a stock or better ride yet not floaty, looks stock. I want the car to look stock so as not to appear any more desireable to thiefs. Some of the areas that I and my wife have to park in are not the best/safest for cars. Also some the roads look the city paved over a dirt road without smoothing it out first.

I got them from tirerack.com

I only got them @ tirerack because I could get my Koni also @ 1 place +

0% APR on credit card for 6months (miniumn purchase $500 transaction)..
so when I pay it back.. and not worry about interests.

I heard you get a better deal here:

You'll be dumping extra $$$ as a camber kit WILL be required.....

Didnt need one for my H&R drop at all. Camber specs were fine after the drop.
