    I run Tokico HP Series shocks and Arospeed coilover conversions... but I will be changing to Ground Control soon. If you shop around, Tokico Blues and Ground Control coilovers can be had for close to or under 500 bucks, and provide a satisfying experience.

    There are so many combo and peiced together parts that will out perform Tein all day it's not even funny. You should figure out what you are looking for as far as handling, then think about adjustability and ride hieght.

    Konis and GC are always a good choice. I have Tokico Illuminas and GCs, and am pretty happy.

    Shocks do not control ride height. They control dampening, and when a shock is adjustable, that means the dampening (stiffness) is adjustable, not the ride height. If you want to be able to adjust the ride height, you will need coilover conversions. Get yourself some nice Ground Control and call it good. If you want springs (non-adjustable ride height, but smoother ride), I recommend Intrax. They're a good spring, IMO.

    True coilover systems are almost always better than sleeve coil setups, the reason being you can adjust your ride height without losing all your suspension travel. Most of them are also matched perfectly (strut stiffness vs. spring rate) and are just plain a better choice. But for the money, GCs and some KYB AGXs or tokico adjustables give some very impressive results for 500 bone.
