Sportlines will give you fender to wheel drop. It will definitely satisfy you. The ride is great too for a spring upgrade.

I ran Eibach Pro-Kits and Neuspeed Race Springs for years with stock shocks.. They rode great! Anyone saying you have to get custom shocks is selling something!

For Neuspeed Sport or Race springs, you don't need any different front shocks... stock are fine. But for the rear, that's not the case. The HFP shocks are ok for the rear to a point, but to really control the rear springs, you need the Konis Sports.

So, right you can run Neuspeeds with stock shocks, and if you aren't tuned into the suspension, then you can get away with them for a long time. But if you want good performance, then the rear Koni Sports are important.

Don't buy tanabe df210's. I have them and the performance is decent but the ride sucks. Get Eibach or Neuspeed.

On the rear shocks, the issue is that the rear springs on the Neuspeed Sport and Race kits is 440 and 460, which is too high for the stock shocks. The stock springs are only 230 lb/in in back. So, the point is that you can run the stock shocks, but the back of the car will be under-damped, and that's a performance issue.

So, that's why I say you should get the Koni Sports for the rear if you want Neuspeed springs.

Hope that helps,
Chris
