They're great springs, yes it's worth paying labor twice unless you can "wait" for the bilsteins to arrive, though I wouldn't recommend it from past precedent, unless you're willing to wait a very long time to try and save a couple hundred bucks.
lowering spring is going to make the current struts wear out faster since they are placing added demand on them. The more drastic the drop, the more quickly the stock struts (or any struts) will wear out. RCE's have the mildest drop of any available lowering spring for the 5th gen and work well with the stock struts (as well as they can work with crap stock dampers anyway).
So, it's your take that just RCE spings with OEM '13 struts and shocks should not make me bounce like I'm shooting for the stars?!?!?!
I have the order in and waiting for arrival, but hesitant on the install for just what I mentioned.
On a side note, they will be coupled with 245/45/17 tires on 9" rims...
