whats the difference between race springs and sports springs. are the ride quality the same?

Does anyone have a picture of them on a civic si.


And one last question whats the ideal drop.
Don;t want it too low but not too high. pictures of your drop will be great

thanks

H&R's are great. i like the sports. The race are just lower. The ride is great on the sports.

lower CG means less weight tranfser and more stability.....weather its braking or accelerating or taking a corner...race springs have higher spring rates to fight body roll and the transfer of weight...and also sit lower...needing higher spring rates for less suspension travel. race springs have trouble clearing speed bumps at times and are more risky on the street of hitting objects...sport springs are more comfterable to ride in...but don't handle as well.
