I used the H&R Sport/Race.
I say Sport/Race because it depends on your stock suspension.
The Sport and Race springs have the exact same part number from H&R, 29484.

If you have the regular suspension, 29484 will be classified as RACE (Blue Color) which will lower your car by 2.0F/1.3R. But if you have the sport suspension (M-TECH), it will be classified as SPORT (Red Color). It will lower the car by 0.75F/0.25R. which is what I gone with.

Believe me when I say I checked and double checked the specs before I got the springs. So i say you are safe to go with 29484, IF you have the sport package. Or else, your car will be slammed!

One thing I am not sure of is that you have a 325. I don't know if the springs are interchangable between 330 and 325s. maybe someone on the board can find out. or tell your shop the part number and have them verify if it fits a 325.

Good Luck!

Thanks to Tommy Mayer from Germany for some useful info!

Thanks for the compliments.

I have 19x10s in the back on 265/30/19s

I did roll the fenders. although it didn't really cause any rubbing during regular driving except going up drive ways or slanted. But after the rolling, I figured I still have some room left, either for 275s =) or 10mm Spacers =(...

Love those red demon eyes, I'm waiting for the DDEs. =)

I have the Sport springs. if you look under www.hrsprings.com , applications section, under Sport springs. 29484. thats the lower specs.

Look at the before drop pic, the rear bearly changed much. so .25 is just about right! there is your proof.

On the other hand, the race setup is for those who have regular suspensions. so in comparison, those cars are the real 4x4s and will seem a lot lower. But with our SPs, its different.

It wont say concertible as 330CiC or 325CiC, but if you look in the middle columns. It'll say "incl conv"

Here is a pic of the dronells from my friend's car. Show it to your bro, maybe he will be interested.
