Lightbulb What about shocks?

You did not mention shocks. If those are the original shocks, that can give you a problem with the ride (not necessarily yours) but, I put Bilstein HD's and HR springs in my car. One bump at front and 3 bumps in the rear. I have a 1 finger clearance at front and 2 fingers clearance in the rear. I know shocks are designed to control the rebound but the HD's, at least in my car, helped me in keeping the "lowered look" without the "slammed look". Other people had rubbing problems with the HR and Bilstein sports and stock/comfort shocks.
In other words, even if you want to keep your stock springs, like you already have, look into getting new shocks. Do a search on the subject.
Just a friendly advice
