    I was just wondering if anyone had some oppinions on what a good strut/spring combo would be.
    It will be street only.
    b16 swap, so maybe some extra weight up front.
    does not have to be adjustable.
    i would not like to lower my car as much as possible.
    i'm looking for a cheap combo, but if i have to pay a little(i know, that's a relative term) more for good value, i will.
    I don't want anything too stiff.
    so far, i've gotten one suggestion from someone i know: kyb gr2's with h&r oe sport springs.
    any recommendations or tried and true combos are appreciated. i know it's different from one person to the next, but i'm just a noob w/suspension, so....
    thanks

    those aren't the oe springs, are they? did it lower your rex too much? also, isn't that a pretty stiff setup? i haven't heard anything about the tokicos. how was the ride?

    not too stiff... the ride was great lots better than the oem set up with cheapo coil overs.

    tokicos are "oem" replacements that wont fail when you put a spring to drop them plus they are gas shocks AND the springs are H&R sport springs...

    the set you see cost me $450
