The S-Tech's have a nice drop. If the springs are stiffer, you'll get better handling, but if they're just lowering springs then don't bother. It's just like the H&R Cup Kits. The springs are way too soft and some people have even said they've ridden on just the bump stops on a bumpy road cause the spring rates are so soft.
Depends tho if you get a sublte drop on your stock struts will handle it just fine, if you get a big drop with stock struts they will wear out fast. S-tech for my car drops it 2.4" front and 2.0" rear, while the H-tech is 1.9" front and 1.5" rear. Higher spring rates means softer right? I dont remember how that was...
