Default What springs to get for Saleen wheels?

Have finaly decided on chrome saleens from american muscle. 18x9, 18x10. Nitto tires.
Before I buy them, I want to lower the mach. Was thinking about H&R ss springs, but am open to different brands. Just don't want any major wheel gap, and need suggestions on what to do with the isos.

Any tips on which setup works best with 18's on a newedge would be appreciated. I'd love a really, really.. low stance, like you see on cobras from the magazines. But no coilovers. This car is not a daily driver, and is not gonna be going over speedbumps.

Photoshop...

I kept my Iso's on mine and I did not get a huge drop but I would still recomend leaving the ISO's on. FYI I wen't with the B springs

I have h&r on my V6 with the isos. And I want my black one with the saleens to sit lower. So I'm thinking about leaving the isos off. It's not a daily... more or less just for a car show cruise, and im really wanting the stance to be perfect to set off the saleens.

one more thing: would you guys go with the 285's? or should I go all out and get the 305's on the rear.

It's between 295 and 305 as of now. Not a big difference though.
