RE: H&R Springs

I too have a 90, 1988 2wd.  I've thought about H&R and Eibach spring
conversions but have serious concerns about the drop.  My car, with the
stock wheel and tire and suspension configuration is already fairly close to
the ground.  The nose will drag the ground on driveways and lot entrances
quite easily, and the travel over railroad tracks and speed bumps etc. is
already fairly short.  I suspect sport springs will make the clearance even
worse.  I haven't heard anything to confirm or deny such suspicions, but
things to consider.
