I love the setup I have now, ride sits perfect to my liking, not slammed, and the ZHP springs are only supposed to be 6% stiffer than sport springs, but I can totally tell the difference. A tad more harsh when hitting some bumps like expansion joints on bridges, but it just sits so perfect, handles so well, it's like a match made in heaven. I only wish my front could be dropped a tiny bit more, but I'd never sacrifice the ride quality I have just to make it look a bit better.

DO IT. try to find some used ones like I did.. Got my set (all 4) for $150 off of the classifieds section here. There are specific color codes for ZHP springs, search and you will find them, that's really the only way to tell I think..
