Default aftermarket springs for 996TT

I am looking to get aftermarket lowering springs for my 996TT. I currently have 19" wheels on my car and the big gap between the wheel & fenders look akward. I am not looking to spend more than $400. Sofar, all I hear aboutis H&R springs.Would H&Rsprings be the best choice? How is the ride?

H&R and Eibach both make springs for the 996TT. Other companies such as cargraphic, techart, etc sell their springs, which are just relabled H&R or Eibachs. Both are good spring and will do the job. Keep in mind with lowering springs, you will prematurely wear out your shocks and struts, as they are not designed to be used with lowering springs. This will not happen over night, but you will find over the long run they will require replacement sooner. The proper way to lower the car is obviously with a coilover suspension kit such as bilstein PSS9/10's

I assume the Bilstein PSS9/10's coilover suspension can be height adjustableand dampering adjustable? What would something like this typical cost with installation?Thanks again for the feedback.
