Dinan Stage 2 VS. Dinan Stage 2 with H&R Springs

Has anyone had experienced any problems such as i.e. coil binding, strange noise from suspension? I personally had H&R springs on for about a year or so, and noticed that they don't slip right into the factory bushing groove. Eventually, the end of the coil managed to cut through a part of the bushing (ended up swaping out the bushing), so I moved the spring to sit a bit further back. Once in a while I do hear nasty squeaking noise through bumps on highway on the stiffest EDC mode. I had the dealership check on my suspension, but visually seems like there is nothing wrong, and they could not duplicate the issue (as usual). Have not had any issues since then, until I got the dinan's FRC and rear sway bar on. When I angle the car through a really big dip, so far I have only heard once which to me seemed like a coil binding noise... Anyone else had this issue? Also for those of you who have the complete Dinan Stage 2 package, does the drop look a bit higher compared to other springs like H&R or eibach, etc...?

thanks for your input!!!
