    ground control coilovers w/ konis is supposed the best bang for the buck setup that you could get in your price range. i have always liked the kyb adjustable shocks too.

    since you are poor and cant afford a decent entry level coilover i recommend k-sports... bottom of the barrel only for the best.

    Thank you guys for your support.

    I am pretty poor, making $500 a month working at my local garage.

    I do have about $1100 on the bank right now though.

    I may even just buy some ground controls and put them on my stock struts.

    Where could I find K-Sports? I couldn't fimd them on eBay.

    If I wasn't so cheap what would be the next best set-up? Koni Yellows and Ground Controls?

    If I were to just get Ground Controls on my stock struts would it still be an ok ride?

    it would be absolutely terrible .. worst thing you could do.. if anything you'd wanna use the Konis w/ your stock springs

    ya brad get this combo. You can lower your car almost as much as you want and still get great handleing and comfort. It is worth the price ( pricey)

    My friend had K-sports on his 240, it rode a bit rough but cornered like it was on rails.

    Kyb AGX or Tokico Illuminas w/ Eibach pro-kit or H&R sport.. you wont be disappointed with either choice

    also, i'd stay away from those choices you listed.. the GR-2s and the HPs are basically OE replacement that are good for a .5 inch drop at most.. drop either of those more than 1.5" and they'll be blown eventually
