Progressive rate springs are meant to collapse like that. Many other manufacturers (Bilstein, H&R, Eibach, FK) do the same thing. Probably more so on these because of the lower spring rate. You' re...

Not even close to a "nice fit". Fronts will be close, rears wont fit without a lot of work, and dont even think about using spacers, unless you're going for that stanced look. Up to you though.

19s are fine as long as the total weight (tire&wheel) are near or less than the stock combo. To outright state that they will ruin a cars handling is just ignorant. 65K is low mileage but the 10yr...

Are you talking about the plastic flex hose that runs from the brake duct to the airbox? If so then you can use some flex radiator hose as a replacement.
