Swift Spec R with Bilstein B8 shocks?

Does anyone know if the Swift Spec R springs will work well the the Bilstein B8 shocks? I was told by somebody that the Spec R springs would wear out the B8's. I don't trust the person telling me that so figured I would ask on here.

The B8's are designed by Blisten to be used with lowering springs. The description is on their website.

Should work no problem. I run RCE Yellows on B8s.

If Spec-R wears out the B8s, then every spring paired with B8s will wear out the B8s.
