No its not really what I would call harsh... its really a bit more floaty than harsh. It rides fairly nicely. I think that the general thought on the swift boards is to cut 1/2 coil all around and see what you think. Its trial and error since cars all have different weights and people have different tastes.

As a disclaimer my past five cars were lowered as well...
1991 Acura Integra, skunkworks coilover sleeves on tokico blue struts
1999 Jetta, h&r cup kit
2001 Golf, h&r coilovers
2003 Jetta Wagon, b+g coilovers w/adj damping
1993 Audi S4, abt springs on bilstein struts
