I've had the DF210 and they are great springs although a bit soft to preserve the ride comfort. You will be okay with your stock shocks but not for long. Like kayotik mentioned mate it with an aftermarket shocks. I highly recommend the Tokico 5 way adjustables (Illuminas).

I am currently running the NF210 because the DF210 were too low for my taste.

If you are going with coilovers sometime in the near future, then dont buy struts. If not then go grab some tockicos or Konis.

^^^ very comparable to stock ride. Don't expect improvements in cornering though. The DF210 are meant for that dropped look without sacrificing ride comfort. Perfect for daily driving and not for the tracks (same goes to the NF210).

Hey tigger, would you happen to know how these ride compared to H&Rs?

I want to bascially be 2inches lower all around and be the closest to stock in terms of comfort. Either ones will be paired with illuminas

Thanks

^^^ Funny you ask because I've actually been in an IS running H&Rs w/ Tokico blues. H&R tend to be a bit stiffer compared to the DF210. Then again H&R are more sportier so if your after close to stock in terms of comfort, go with the DF or NF 210.

I'm running billstein shocks. I don't know whether they have lower perches or not, cause I just installed it the way it came from tire rack.
