I did the same with my car two years ago, but beware that where the front axel is connected to the wheels ( I dont remember the engllsh word ) will wear out pretty quick, especially if you use in on the track. The angle is different. Now im back to OEM springs but Bilstein sprint shocks. Looks nice though :-)

After the drop, did your alignment go back into spec without having to buy camber plates?
