Ok, since I'm still up at this hour, I guess I'll attempt to answer this.

The simple answer is Yes, you can run H&R sport springs with stock shocks. You can also run H&R Race springs with stock shocks too.

It's like saying: Can you run a marathon with loafers? I guess you can, right? will it be comfortable? probably not. will you finish the marathon? possibily.

Anyways, my reasoning to convince people to swap shocks/struts while switching springs is that you'll be saving $$ in the long run. If you pay $100 to just get springs installed and realized that the ride sucks or that you're already running on blown shocks/struts...... you probably spend another $100 to install shocks/struts after the springs have been installed.

So pay the install cost just once...instead of 2x.
If you are doing the install yourself, then you're lucky. Go ahead and install the springs by themselves and see how you like it.

If you are paying someone to install the springs, IMHO, I suggest that you bite the bullet and get the struts installed at the same time.

Good luck,

or will that be bad in the long run? cuz i kno if u have race springs, u need stronger shocks, but what about just with sports springs?
