I've been thinking about lowering the stance on my TT. I'm thinking to change only the springs, no coilover kits. I don't want to lose much ride quality, if any.

Anybody have any experience with aftermarket springs? Pictures?

EDIT: I have seen the RoW kit, a little out of the price range I want to spend on springs. I have heard good things about the H&Rs.

H&R's are alittle harsh for someone that wants to maintain ride quality, You might want to check on Eibach's I have them on my Boxster and while yes the Boxster is completely different than a 997TT, the Eibach's do lower the car and you still have alot of ride comfort after installing them.

How noticable was the change in ride quality? Any specific habits I should know about?

Thanks

I have the Champion version of the H&R springs on my turbo. The drop is 1" as advertised. The ride is similar to stock in regular mode and a bit stiffer in sport mode. The handling at the track is quite good, no more dive or excessive squatting. The only downside is the scraping on the front end, it was bad enough stock, you just have to adjust your driving style a little on steep driveways etc.

As far as I know there is no RoW option on the 997TT. all cars have the same suspension worldwide.
