    im on 18" vxr reps with a 30/30 drop and find it a nice ride height.

    jaynosXp is on 19"vxr's with a 30/50 drop

    if using just springs with out upgrading the shocks then it does make the ride quite hard so if possible i would change the both.

    or if you are going for coilovers then stay away from the ebay cheapy's as they have a bad rep for being quite sloppy,

    look on lmf if you want coillies
