    well for a descent price I think a set of neuspeed sport springs, matted with either kyb agx's or koni adj will suit ya just fine. springs are about $130 from alljdm.com. and the shocks are about $85-$120 ea.

    well, i thought teins were more expensive than that, how much would a whole set up cost me? If its only like 300 more ill just save and get the good shit.

    SS's are the cheap model for teins... the ha's are 1500 with PBMounts and the N1's are 1700

    i thought i heard someone say that the ss's replace the ha's and that the pillowball mount isnt needed anyway.

    the pillow mount isnt "needed" but its a good thing to have ... it gives the top part of the coilover a much more stable/solid mount (steel or aluminum Vs. rubber) it will give more precise handling and better road feel (the ride will be somewhat rougher)
    and on some cars ( not hondas :( ) the pillow mounts allow camber adjustments

    the ss's are the same as the ha's minus the helper spring, the ss's are a direct replacment for the ha's.. so, they are not that "cheap".. still 16 way adjustable shock w/ride height adjustable spring..
