    complete suspension setup
    tires
    rims
    brakes
    control arms, etc...
    bushings
    springs
    dampeners
    strut bars
    sway bars
    tie bars
    anything that stiffens the chasis

    theres lots of other shit that i cant think of right now that would be part of the cars suspension system
    but you get the idea

    as for coilovers and what they consist of
    it depends what you are refering to

    a true coilover consists of both the spring and dampener... sometimes you will get the upper mount (pillowball) as well.... some are adjustable some are not

    the slip on "coilovers" are just a spring with an adjustable perch so you can set it to your own ride height
