HR 1" lowering springs

My mechanic also has a boxster and recently installed pss9 coil overs to his car and lowered it about an inch. I love the lower stance. I recently however replaced most of my suspension including Koni struts and decided I want to lower mine now with HR springs. My question is will I have to use adjustable toe arms like my mechanic to keep the alignment and geometry correct or can I just install the springs, align and be on my way?

My car is about 1" lower (w/ KWV3'S) and I still required the rear adjustable toe links..

OK, here is a picture of what I have. How is $200 shipped?



Here is the picture from the H&R site - pretty sure this is it:


PM me for any more questions or payment details.
