    You sound like you need to do some research. What is the car going to be used for? Unless you're track racing or AutoXing you don't need coilovers. If you just want to give the car a more agressive stance, buy some Tokico Illuminas and a set of H&R Race springs.

    Drag, SCCA, NASA? What kind of racing? What are your competitors using? Have you ever driven a car with really stiff springs, do you know what rates would be good for you? The thing about suspension is everyone has a different take on what's the best and what's the most comfortable. Some people like a loose rear end, some don't.

    If this isn't a track car, or mostly designed for the track just get a set of Tokico Illuminas and some H&R Race springs. If you needed the adjustability of coilovers, you'd probably already know which ones you want.

    Also, don't buy from ebay, that's just stupid. Buy from an authorized dealer and then you'll get a warranty. If you don't you'll be SOL if a shock blows or something. Check out the omnipower street coilovers, if you're dead set on adjustable suspension, that would be a good place to start.
