it's h&r race springs for non sport and sport springs for sport suspension. they're the same springs. hopefully that makes sense.
my tires never rub. i can't make them. the only time i've ever had rubbing was in the winter in the rear. i run spacers in the winter to push the rears out and they're a little far out.
but no, i never rub in the summer time with either wheels

yeah i'd love to put an mtech 2 front on. but i really don't want a replica and if i'm going to shell out the $1000+ for OEM i'd rather invest that money into a LSD.

Nice, and I have an umnitza mtech ii front and it fits perfectly. And that's good that nothing rubs, do you have any clearing issues with the springs?

Yes. I can get over most speed bumps. But I will scrape my front bumper ever so slightly on some driveways. Luckily my driveway is completely flat on the entry.
I never truly planned on lowering it. I just wanted better performance. I like it lowered though. The front could be maybe 1 cm higher and I'd be happy though.

Thanks, I can manage driveways, plus I have the mtech II and splitters which make it hang lower.

Is your car lowered at all? On my phone so I can't see sig pics if you have one.
If I got an mtech 2 front I'd want to get splitters too but would be scared to bust them up. Although I drive very carefully.
