Yes it matters.  Having mismatche d damping rates front to rear will affect the balance of the car.

Honestly, I think it's probably more important for street driving.  I poor handling car that you're driving daily makes you not want to drive it.  You don't have to have really expensive stuff for daily street driving.  The key is to make sure the springs and dampers are matched, otherwise you get into a situation like Mr. Brewer above where an aftermark et spring is underdamp ed and the car is bouncy as crap.

then someone else is gonna be pissed cause u cut corners, i mean its not too bad, but dude, if ur gonna do it do it right My sedan was the definitio n of cutting corners, previous owner cut the hell out of everythin g, even the harness, put a random big ass punched hole in the firewall, put ebay springs on stock struts... i mean i hate hi for it. dont be that person, even tho im sure it will ride and handle ok, but uneven rates as mentoned can fuck with the balance.
