About to Order Sportlines

should i do it?
everyone talks their dose of trash about them
one person says oh get them you'll love them
another person says there good only for looks because the handling is trash
i don't want the pro kit because it will barely lower my car.
people say to get pedders but imo there too expensive and don't drop the car as much as sportlines do
how harsh will my ride be after i get sportlines and install the FE5 suspension? will i even be able to notice. i don't really understand what people mean by harsher ride quality so if someone can explain that'd be great

Get them! I love mine!!

You will notice the bumps more is what people are saying by harsher ride quality.
But really, its not anything to complain about.

harsher ride quality means that most likely it would be a stiffer suspention package,but that can sometimes be good for a track but not so much everyday riding because bumps will become more noticalbe/not as much as a comforting ride. but depending on how stiff the Fe5 suspention is u might not even notice the difference

Ya i'm planning on getting the sportlines in a month when it gets warm and installing them on my stock suspension. But alota ppl on here said cornering and haqndling would be quite better than stock (as expected since the springs are stiffer and center of gravity is lower to the ground). and I really want a good drop but no sag (which sportlines should not have) so anyone else love their sportlines? ps I live in Quebec canada where the roads suck balls :( potholes everywhere

well i mean i hit bumps here and there on stock suspension. some are worse than others. i mean i have hit bumps when i had my 18's on and could tell the difference from the stock rims.
is it worth the investment to get? or should i get different springs? i want a clean drop like sportlines tho.

also if i do buy these should i wait till i put my 18's back on to install them? or should i put them on when i still have my winter rims on? i heard you need to get an alignment after too

Just like G said get them you won't be disappointed. I have them and I love them. You will notice the bumps more, but you will get use to it. I love how the handling improved when I put them on.
