thanks for the info
well I'd say you need some stronger shocks rather than springs... all these springs would lower the car in the back so they might be stiffer but lower thus just as likely to rub. I think upgraded shock or springs with stiffer spring rate but same oem height would do you good, but upgraded shocks are more viable.

its strange how the fronts are softer than the rears. Looks like my springs do have quite an upgrade over stock after all...

Actually... I just asked the manufacturers of these springs and this was the consensus.

I'm running HKS which are 6kg/mm front and 5kg/mm rear with adjustable shocks and they are SWEET (but pricy). A little lower (1") doesn't hurt but 6/5 is stiff. I'd at least go 4/4 or 5/5 and adjustable shocks are great for tuning it just right.

I've heard about having to cut the bump stops or something to install springs for the rear.

Is there truth to this?
If so, are there any springs that don't require this? I am leasing my car, would like to put springs, but obviously cutting anything is out of the question.

Every spring will be different. The instructions will tell you what to cut. Most springs will have you cut front and rear bump stops about one inch.

If you dont cut the bump stops your car will handle poorly. Lowering reduces suspension travel, meaning you will hit the bumpstops sooner if they are the same length as stock.
