You probably wont find anything more 'aggressive' than tein. If you want something liek that, get the full setup.

I think Tein springs are soft. There are alot more springs out there that offer a more aggresive ride (I imagine the creator of the post means that he wants more of a stiff spring). However, for me the ride height on the s-techs is perfect. They do right a little soft, but coupled with some agxs the actually handle pretty good and are great for daily driven cars. I also have heard good things about RS*R springs.

The only option IMO is Eibach springs....no one else has a 1,000,000 mile warranty.

For that little more than others, 220 total the sportline springs are great.

Shop around and you will see.
