Default Switched from Prodrive to RCE springs?

Has anyone switched from Prodrive to RCE springs? I'm trying to decide between the two. My only hesitation with the RCE springs is the potential for a harsher ride. I don't plan on tracking the car and it is my daily driver. I do like the drop on the RCE springs better than the Prodrives.

I am contemplating the exact same thing.
Prodrives are a solid improvement but there is def room for improvement with regards to the bobble head effect.
Def better than stock, but RCE could be the answer to my prayers.

Only time and comprehensive reviews from those who live with them on a daily driver will sway me to change from Prodrives.

I was thinking about doing the same thing with some RCE no-lowering camber plates. I just need to wait until I get my 20g setup done.

funny, i've been debating this for a long time and felt like the only one that was considering either of those and leaning towards the prodrives. I purchased the RCE's but won't be able to know what they're like for another 2-3 weeks.

Hmmm my friend has an 05 sti with prodrives and I have the 06 with rce's. I should drive his/he should drive mine and we should do a writeup. Maybe help some of you guys out.
I can say that Prodrive is a quality spring. They test/re-test/overengineer their stuff. They also have the means to do so.

Definitely... Find a patch of crappy expansion-joint laden concrete freeway and drive them back to back over the same stretch of road. That would be extremely helpful for a lot of people I'm sure.
