H&R spring rates & coilover question

Hi!

I am considering doing something about the handling of my RA. I have been doing a lot of research on coilovers and it seems BC Racing provides the best value for money. A cheaper option would be the Tein street basis which have the same spring rates as the BC’s but doesn’t have adjustable dampers. Even cheaper would be Eibach Pro or H&R springs which lowers the car without screwing up your stock dampers.

Now for the questions. Anyone know the spring rates of the eibachs and h&r’s? How do they “cooperate” with the stock dampers when it comes to body roll and daily driveability? Finally, has anyone compared the teins to the bc’s when it comes to daily driveability?

As far as I can tell, people have been very adamant that if you just want lowering springs to get swift. They are supposedly the best choice for stock struts. I would also like to know about the Tein vs BC. I would assume that BC would be the best performing setup for street and track. I have been looking into the Tein basis z for coilovers simply because my car is a DD. I have read that the Teins are a great replacement vs the stock setup. Do you track your car at all? If you do then the street basis are out.

No I don’t track the car very often. To me it seems there is a general consensus around Eibach Pro being the best spring only solution. Problem for me is I live in Sweden where H&R is easy to get and Eibach Pro or Swift means I have to import from the US.

Regarding Tein vs BC, it seems the street basis and BC coils have about the same spring rates, so it becomes a matter of which dampers will suit a DD best...
