Can I use HR springs on sport package Shocks?
I was told by a friend that dropping my car on sport package shocks my cause problems in 6 months. He told me specifically that his 99 m3 could be dropped on springs alone, you need shocks and springs. So if you have heard different or heard the same story, I want to hear it. Thank you.

not that i've heard..
don't worry, it will be fine

a lot of ppl have or had H&R race springs in their rides, no problems at all

I second Enarchy. You should be fine. The shocks will wear out sooner, but you can use that time to save up for coilovers :eeps:

It will work fine but you will have premature wear on your OEM shocks.
If you don't want to spend the $$$ on coilovers...are great compromise is the H&R cupkit.

I have H&R race springs with my OEM sport package shocks and it's been fine for over a year now. A lot of people on this forum are running the same setup. You'll be ok.

I'm in the same boat as joe330ci, i've had my H&R springs installed on stock shocks for the past year and no problems. I'll probably buy bilstein adjustables when my stock shocks blow. If you can afford it in the beginning, get both springs/shocks and save on installation charges in the long run.

It will be fine. I have H&R Race on my stock shocks before I upograded to Coils

Not a prob , just like everyone said you will be fine and once your shocks blow out get coilovers...My H&R's are on my SP coupe no prob at all.

people have been doing it for thousands of miles without problem... you'll be fine
