Is it smart to put h&r sport springs on the stock shocks? I know it will lower the life span. My sonata has 57k miles and I live in a place with smooth roads and flat (florida). How long do you guys think they would last? It's about a 1.5" drop

It works fine. I like the firmness a lot better than stock. I have had H&R spring on stock gls shocks for the past 50k miles. Probably not ideal, but all suspension setups are a compromise. I keep waiting for someone other than Monroe to come out with a set of replacement shocks. As of yet no one is making reasonably priced replacement shocks/struts for our cars.

No leaks, no bottoming out of shocks, etc. H&R springs are setup to only compress as far as the original springs would, so even though you are riding on a different part of the stroke on the shock, you are still within the limits of the original travel.

I'm around 60k right now. I put them on pretty soon after I bought the car. I also added the SE rear sway bar around the same time. Both are good and cheap ways to make the car handle much better.
