Default Hotchkis Lowering Springs?

Has anyone had or heard any negative experiences with Hotchkis (#19391) springs on a '11-'12 GT?

They look like a great choice because they provide a nice drop (1.1"/1.6") with comfy spring rates (180 lbs / 125-180 lbs).

By comparison, Pro-Kits drop 1.0"/1.5" and Ultralites drop 1.2"/1.4".

I'd be running these with Koni sport dampers. Daily driver with autocross potential.

Here's a pic I found showing what the drop would look like:

Hotchkis is a quality brand, I've ran them on past cars and they maintain a very comfortable ride while lowering the car.

no experience with those exact springs, but I wouldn't be afraid to try them if you like the drop and the spring rate.

It's a nice looking stance. Did he have anything to say about how the springs ride? I'm still looking for spring rates on them.
