When you buy springs you buy all four. Some members here have left the stock rears in place and just switch the fronts. Some say its good,some say its bad. I have the Progress as well and it lowers the rear by .8". Its very minor but I think it looks better.

Usually the drop in springs will be more drastic in the front. I guess manufacturers realize that the back doesn't need as much adjustment.

I've only had Progress and I love the look.

The answer to your question is Spring, the answer to your second question "which ones" depends on what you're looking for, comfort or performance.

I believe they are a common choice. I definitely don't remember reading anything negative about Teins.
