    the eibach pros are good... what shocks are you looking to run?

    also look at the Neuspeed "Sport" springs, and the H&R "Sport" springs
    they are both pretty similar to the eibachs

    these all match well with KYB AGX shocks

    nNo, a good set of coilovers will be a few hundred more expensive than a good shock/spring combo. On my old setup I ran the Eibach Pro-kit springs with Eibach struts. It rode awesome, dramatically tightened up the handling, and I never bottomed out on anything because it's only a 1.2" drop.
