Anyone running these with the pink springs? I've been running the springs almost from the start and I pulled the trigger on ordering the TS struts recently. Looking through old posts I couldn't find much in the way of describing how these ride compared to stock struts. I don't plan to install them until the originals go bad unless the TS struts have some compelling benefit in handling.

I want to run these tS struts with my RS-R springs. I am curious how much stiffer it will make it.

That's an expensive way to use up struts. If you are using RSR springs on stock struts and they are worn out maybe it's time to get a coilover setup if you like the dropped look.

The RSR springs lower the car by about 1+ inch and it’s debatable how much it shortens the shock lifespan. My car is reaching 45,000 miles and the stock shocks were still working perfectly fine when I replaced with Cusco dampers.

Other factors like overloading the car and bad driving habits will also shorten the lifespan, may be even more so than lowering springs.
