I love my F-Sport Shock/Spring combination. It's the perfect drop for me.

Had them for about 4000 miles, it was alright. Went to coils and never looked back

I have the F-sport spring/shock setup. The ride quality is good and the drop is good for a car I have to drive daily. I am happy with them.

Once I have cleared my list of modifications wants I may look at moving to a coil over setup. I like the idea of having control of adjustment so I can find the sweet spot.

If you have the funds for a nice set of coils i think it is the best option.

I use my car as a daily driver (45 mile commute each way, plus lots of driving throughout the day), the FSport spring/shock combo is perfect for that IMO.

Let me know if you are interested in selling your setup. I'd be interested in purchasing them.

for what I paid for F-Sport shocks and springs, it was $100 more to upgrade to coils. should have saved myself $700 and went straight for coils

Have the F springs on stock shocks.... love it. Low stress/no worries when driving and got rid of the silly wheel gap. Can't beat for around $270.
