    Coilovers - to find the perfect ride height and to go 4x4 style for the winter and low for the summer.

    tein ss coilovers, because i was able to get balanced.. also, i drive the car on the street and road courses, so i like the damper adjustability :)

    coilovers are only worth it if you get *real* coilovers and have them corner balanced. Otherwise - they can really turn into more problems then they are worth. I say springs for a less than 2.0 drop

    well I already have a set of koni yellows sitting in my room so I was trying to decide between ground controls or just getting springs. SInce I have to spend almost $3000 getting my car fixed (multiple accidents from people hitting me and me hitting things over the last three years) I am leaning towards the springs since they are $200 cheaper

    Koni yellows and springs will yield an excellent suspension setup. No need for coilovers unless you REALLY want the adjustability.
