    Help me choose my next suspension, im in the $700 total range for the whole setup.

    I want something I can take to an occasional autox for fun and mainly daily drive on. Car is a 95 eg hatch.

    tein's expensive shit blows... i can't imagine their cheaper shit being good either
    omni break
    agx's are weak/too soft IMO
    tanabe's get my vote out of that list.

    I'd say go TEIN, but the basic damper isn't anything to write home about. With TEIN, you'd have to spend an extra $150-200 or so and get up to the Super Street Damper, which are killer street/lapping coilovers. Myself, Will (Civicious) and a few others on this site swear by them. Never any issues, problems, complaints ect..

    So I voted for the tanabe's :) I've always disliked the omni's, and the KYB/H&R combo is a pretty weak setup.
