    The best bang for the buck is either, KYB AGX with Ground Controls, or Tein Basics. But that is for performance, not looks.

    well i would definatly like them to perform cuz i like to be able to corner n shit looks are also important tho, i spent alot of time making this rex cherry so it needs to look good but it only needs to be set down on the si wheels.
    so what will give me both ?

    Sportline springs offer an increased drop, from 1.5 to 2 inches from stock height......

    Ground control usese eibach springs, and will allow you to adjust your ride height. I say KYB AGX, and ground controls, but that is me.

    your a street guy, back and fourth to work and what not right? you want a street ride, but also to be able to handle some turns and performance, right?

    Spring:
    go with eibach sport line springs, about a 2" drop, depending on application.
    you could also go with Ground control coilovers which use eibach springs

    Shock:
    go with KYB AGX Adjustible shocks, these shocks have the ability to give you a nice stock ride back and fourth to work and with a very quick adjustment you can hit the tracks at any import show with out a hitch, and you'll car will perform great.

    Price:
    this is a very nice set up, it will cost you around $800-$900 including all alignment kits and depending on the spring you get.

    decision:
    its up to you, are you willing to spend a little cash and get a great ride and performance out of it, OR go cheap and jiggle your buns to work, your call, you pay for what you get!!!

    they lower around 1.5" depending on car. they ride very well, but that's because they're a softer spring. so less performance.

    I vote KYB AGX's with Tanabe GF210 springs. Drops it 1.75 in the front 1.5 rear, decent ride quality and will handle very well.
