the illuminas make a big difference. the ride is adjustable, so you can get it at what you want and it absorbs alot of bumps either firm (if set on firm) or soft like a caddy (if set at 1).

i have illuminas with H&R sports, i set the front at 2-3 and the rear at 4-5 when i had my 17's. now i'm on stock 15's with winter tires, so i'm at 2 front, 2 rear and its like a caddy, smooth.

the thing with stock or illuminas is do it when you get the springs installed, that way your only paying for install once and alignment once...rather then both again after installing new shocks when your stock die. a 2.25/1.75 drop is a big drop for stock, so 1 month or 1 year they will die, its just a matter of time. illumina's will handle the drop much longer and the adjustable is nice.

it all boils down to illumina's+H&R race = smooth nice ride
stock with H&R race = bouncy
