Everyone has different opinions on what ride is good or not. In general your set up should be pretty smooth.
Then again I'm runing on 20's, I have 25 series tires out back, and my car is slammed to minus 1 finger gap and I can tell you my ride is surprisingly smooth because of my CS's. You need to be the judge of that by getting an actual ride in my car.
The best way to REALLY know if you will like your set up is to ride in other members cars with the same suspension.
The last cruise meet I believe we had 50 + cars show up.
The time for a change has come .
I have Tein CS v2 on my 2GS and I don't think 20's were my thing. I adjusted the damper softer but it still felt a bit harsh to me. It was probably the fact that I had stretched tires in front. The freeways/highways around here suck. I hate 101, parts of 880, and 87. I recently switched to 18" OEM wheels and 245/40/18 tires and it's much better for me. Everybody has their own definition of "comfortable." I found out that when it comes to looking "cool" vs. comfort, I chose ride quality.
Like Glenn said, the only way to find out is to go to a meet and ride in someone's car who is running that set-up you want, with 20's and go from there.
Thanks for the help. Because im purchasing that setup. Most people that i know have LTuned shocks and springs. Never rode in Ten stech with ltuned. When i sya smooth...im talking about as CLOSE as possible to stock suspension. I dont want the car "hopping" on bumps and harsh bouncy ride. I want it to take bumps as if its stock but just a bit firmer. thats expected when going lowered. With my 20's, the drop should sit perfect with a finger gap. I wanted coilovers but its too much as my weedding is 2 months away.

Eibach springs on the stock shocks offer a slightly firmer ride, although I think Tein CS coils are the closest to stock as far as coils go. But as RMMGS4 said its best to try to ride in someone's car with that setup.
I can't think of any GS with 20s will not be firm. Everyone has different standard of stiffness on cars.
