Both of those dampers will tolerate a moderate drop. I have the FSDs on my street-car 330 ZHP and it rides and handles better than it did with the factory dampers.

I have very expensive coilovers on my race car, and while it's true you can get a budget set of coilovers for your street car, there is no advantage to doing so, while there are a few disadvantages. They are cheap for a reason.
So in your opinion would you recommend going with the FSD's? I like a sporty feeling, but im assuming that translates to a stiffer ride, which is not advantageous.
