I got the H&R's for a 300CE, from some online vendor, autosport style? Tirerack's probably better though. 1.75 inches drop, they're the lower of the 2 settings, I believe. There seems to have been a lower setting somewhere, sometime, but it feels perfect where I have it. Feels like it's on rails, without knocking your teeth out like in a BMW.

drop yes, but the springs are no stiffer..

I just dropped a set of E420 H&R's springs into a 300CE w/ Bilstein sports and the improvement was Dramatic!!

you're better off with cut stock springs, than with cheap coilover sleeves.

Look for a used set of Eibach/Progress/H&R springs
