I'd also dump those springs and just go with some STI take off springs. You will be SO MUCH happier.
All those lowering springs (Eibach, H&R, Mach V, etc.) are all to low and too soft. I've tried them and learned very quickly that it SUCKS riding on your bumpstops.
Thanks for the feedback Bikelok.

Out of curiosity, why do you think I would not like the coilovers in the long run? NVH? Upkeep? General ride characteristics?

The Feal inserts look sweet, but they are a bit pricey. For a while I was considering their coilovers too.
