Question KA8 Suspension Combinations?

I have been long overdue on replacing my suspension as my right rear wheelwell rubs my tire slightly when I make graded, right angle turns at intersections or when I have passengers riding (even just one).

After reading the nice suspension sticky via swift, I'm curious if anyone has tried the KYB GR-2 Excel-G struts/shocks with Vogtland springs (1.2" drop)?

This seems like a great package deal

Also, how would these compare to the popular H&R spring/Koni red strut combination (1.5" front, 1.4" rear)? They're more expensive (better?) and may drop lower than I want.

Which one would be stiffer?

Considering the rear passenger tire already rubs slightly due to obvious wear, what are the odds that either one of these suspension combinations still would cause rubbing?

Also, what kind of suspension for other vehicles is interchangeable with the KA8, if any?

Bump.

Surely someone on here has at least some information?

Question Aftermarket springs with minimal drop?

I had an alignment done a while ago, but the car sat for almost a year due to transmission problems and lack of funds. Transmission issues were finally cleared up, and it's my daily driver again.

If I'm going to replace the suspension anyway, I don't want to do another alignment until new parts are installed.

Is there a set of aftermarket springs that have somewhere between a .25"-.75" drop to match the Konis? I don't know if I want to go with the H&Rs and have to get a camber kit or roll the fenders.
