Default RS-R downs..or are they!?!?

hey guys went to install my springs i ordered from RS-R.....which were suppose to be downs....but when i was opening the box the springs had a sticker on em that said "super-downs" as did a label on the inside of the box but i went ahead with the install any way and couldnt be happier....just dont know which they are...im thinking they are super-downs due to the minimal gap. lmk what u guys think....pardon the pics i know they suck as it was dark by the time i finished!

Looks great. I guess it needs to settle more but the gap looks about the same as my S-techs (a little less than a finger gap) with stock wheels.

Just got my rsr downs installed. I think they are a little bumpy. I haven't gotten an allign ent as I want to wait a week to let the springs settle. I'm on stock wheels. Just wondering what you thought about the ride. I like the tight feeling but with " stock like " ride description, I think it's a lot more jerky. I'm going to by the tanabe brace next week, so we shall see.

Part of the confusion is the fact that they are part of the RSR Super Down series, but there are two drop heights (for AWD at least).

An explanation from RSR USA:

If you have any more questions, please do not hesitate to give us a call or send us an email.

I think there is a Half Down Series offered for the Japan market which I think that's what they consider to be Down in Japan...

RS*R actually stopped shipping (or at least it looks like that is what they did) the Down version of the springs to replace the label to T195D to avoid the confusion. I noticed on their website that the part isn't in stock but when I ordered them from another place, I was told that they would be in stock this week.
