These were actually installed by mistake. I ordered RS*R Downs initially, well I did not get a chance to check the actual springs before install. Surprisingly though, I like the drop and ride comfort the HD's offer. This is how it should have come stock IMO.
I'm not going to lie and say its better than stock, but it is close to stock. You do feel the road a bit more, it does absorb small imperfection and bumps well. It does feel stiffer than stock also. There is also a bit more road noise, but nothing that would want you go back to stock. It still feels more comfortable than my Fiesta ST. I drove about 60 miles in D. I have not tried Sport or SPort + yet.
There is improved handling. Less body roll and more composure when taking turns. Love the improvement.
I think this is where I noticed the most improvement. there is no longer a feeling of heaviness if that makes sense when braking.
I'm happy with my purchase, I think with the downs I would have loved the look but hated the loss of comfort.
Ill be getting some wheel spacers until I collect enough money to get some TE37 SL's.
Pics are bad since I took them late in the day. Ill take better ones later on:
