Thumbs up Lowering Springs Poll

I'll be in the market for lowering springs once tax returns come in and ive been having a lot of trouble which to choose.

This is basically what I want:
Yes i want to lower and yes i want that aggressive look, BUT
I care more about the performance/handling gains of it.
I dont want to spend a few hundred bucks on just looks, I want something worth the money.

Anyways, so tell me which you like and why
give the pros and cons if you could as well

Thanks!

I voted H&R.
I started years ago with H&R, then tried Eibach and Intax.
I returned back to H&R because they were the most well-rounded.
Moderate lowering with a slightly raked stance, and a different ramp rate which seemed more comfotable in daily driving, but still benefitted handling.
If you get beat up driving your car, you don't enjoy it asmuch.

The rate at which the spring gets stiffer when compressed.
The Eibachs use a heavier spring steel, so they get stiffer more quickly as they are compressed.
I have found the H&Rs to be a bit more forgiving at lower speeds, but when driven hard, they provide plenty of stiffness to enhance handling.
