Default Cobb Tuning Sport Springs 2011+ WRX

Got a 2013 WRX that I am slowly upgrading. Looking to start upgrading the suspension. I've done the coilover setup before on my RS-T not doing it again. I don't want my car sitting on the ground, I drive this car everyday so around 1" is good. More important I want it to feel better in the corners and days of spirited driving. Cobb Tuning has always had a good rep but can't find any reviews on their springs. I'm also looking at the RCE blacks.

Cobb has never had a good rep with their springs. Too low and too soft.

I had Cobb install their springs and sways on my 2012 WRX about three weeks ago. I don't know how to compare them to RCE or coilovers or such but I am happy with slight drop and the better handling for DD use without being harsh. I do plan going to an HPDE next month so I will find out how they feel compared to last event when I was completely stock suspension. For me DD setup is of prime concern.

Any one else have any experience with these springs? I too am interested in getting them on my car but am concerned with the shocks going.
