Changing springs cannot improve both ride and handling. One or the other, maybe, but not both.

With lowering springs, wheel travel is lost, so performance is lost, somewhere.

If you have RWD (like me), you can't have the optional cold-weather package, which they claim has a high-output heater. I was a bit worried about that, but took the chance and it's been OK for me. ...
