@imprezabry I installed my H&R springs I believe at around 40K. Im now about to hit 60K and have little to now problems. Sometimes the springs would get a little noisy and sound like they were rubbing. I simply would lift my car up with a jack about every 7k miles and drop it and the sound would be solved. Very tedious work but with patience and the right tools it can be done. I recommend watching Youtube videos of people chasing springs for the 2015+ wax models since it is very similar components if not identical. Subiespeed gives a good video on what tools and steps you'll take to accomplish the project. Ride is comfortable and you'll definitely see noticeable change after the springs settle.

Here is a before and after. Took me about 3.5 hours for a first time user. Now I can tear apart a whole strut in probably less than 30 minutes.

@Galaxy Does ride stiffness or harshness increase? Body roll affected?
Also can I ask what wheel size and offset are you running? Fender modifications?
