Do it right, do shocks/struts also. Then again, for an inch you may not need them. For an inch, why bother?

those are good springs...do you know diff between specific and progressive? if not.....Progressive rate springs have a variable spring rate. What this means is that the spring gets firmer as it gets compressed. The harder you push into a corner the stiffer the spring becomes. A specific rate springs features the same rate all the time, it does not matter what pressure is applied on the springs. Progressive rate springs tend to have better characteristics on the street where as a specific rate spring shines on the track......its all in what you want out of the spring/car
