Default 94 L Springs vs. 00 2.5RS Springs

will their be much of a noticable difference in terms of my car handling better with the 2.5rs springs? I currently have KYB GR2 shocks on the car and am looking for a little bit better handling with maybe .5' lower ride height.
Anyone got info on the spring rates of both? Thanks!

The RS springs are about 10% stiffer than the L springs. They are a very cheap upgrade and will handle a little better.

Here is a chart of the different springs out there and their rates-
