I'm liking the drop on these RSR springs. Definitely a good alternative those who want a nice drop without spending the dough on coils and also loosing the Fsport plus mode.

Looks good! Not sure if the spring rates were posted, but does anyone know what they are for each set?

I have a 350 f sport RWD, I am looking for super downs but can't seem to find them anywhere. Below is a link for the RSRs but they don't offer super downs for the RWD. Does anyone know if I can order the AWD super downs and they will run fine on my car?

Anyone know if the RSR Down Springs and Tein S Techs have around the same drop?? Or are the S Techs closer to the super downs?

According to their websites they are pretty much identical:

Rsr 1.2-1.4/1.0-1.2
Tein 1.2/1.0

Rsr adds an extra 5mm for sag.

I know a few people running the RSR Super Down Springs - 2" front, 1.8" rear and it looks and drives great. To me this is the best lowering spring option available for the 3IS right now.

I know a good amount of people on this thread have the RS*R I coil overs...how is the ride with those compared to stock? I've read that its stiffer but would love an opinion from someone who actually has them on there car.

Thanks

After looking and measuring everything I think I will be ok, i know front will be fine, im just worried about rear. Im also still worried the rear will be lower than the front, this is why i thought about getting coilovers but i have mixed feeling about them..
