    I just want soemthing that is going to lower my car without feeling as if im riding on the damn ground.

    My buddy bought one of those kits that was like $40 for his sentra and OMG it was like riding a god damn rock.

    I'm not into autox or anything like that...mostly just dragging and such, but if the rears ont hese springs aren't stiff enougn, i can just get theo rubber stoppers that stiffen up the backend when i want to race it.



    I dont want a 4" drop becuase of the way my exhuast is routed, but these seem to be okay, 1.5" to 2" drop

    let me know what you think of these items...

    None of those are coilovers they are lowwering springs. Coilovers you can adjust. But i would suggest the teins or try the eibachs. But i would recommend buying aftermarket shocks and struts because they wont blow out like your stock ones will do in a few years. If you want coilovers try the groundcontrols... they are a little bit pricey but worth it.

    You should be able to pick up Tokico Blues (HP series) struts in a pack with Tokico lowering springs for around 400 bucks. If you want a different spring, either go with Ground Control coilover conversions, or Eibach or Intrax springs.

    Out of your four links- get the Teins. Tein actually has some semblance of quality... DropZone and Megan racing are :puke2:

    I agree with Calesta. I'm not sure of the brand, but my buddy has some cheap coilovers in his accord. He's only dropped an inch or so, and it bounces like crazy. He couldn't out corner my grandma's walker. She's much more stable in the turns :p
