    Depends on your criteria.

    For ride quality go with the coil springs.

    For adjustability and stiffness go with coilovers, but not Tenzos. They ride very rough, moreso than other brands.

    If you dont want to spend to much money, I suggest you go on and get some Dropzone coilovers! I do have them on my car and they do ride like Skunk2! They will run you about 125! I cant complain on the ride!

    My buddy had some of those and they broke 2 months after. You get what you pay for remember that if you pay $100 for springs thats what you will get if you pay a little bit more you will get a better product which will last longer.

    Screw it, why not just save up some more and wait a little bit and go all out? Tein SS or the mugen suspension setup. If your car isn't lowered already, why not just wait a little bit longer before you actually do it? I was lucky myself for my friend giving me his old setup, but I'm still saving up for the tein's or mugen suspension right now.

    Not true, B. Tanabe makes wonderful springs. The GF210 kicks ass.
