is it a must u buy coilovers? cuz its not worth the ****ttiness of the ride. why don't u go with springs which will cost about the same.

that should be good enough right for lasting quality for a few years or will i need to replace them later on, and how much will insallation cost for them?

if i gert a strut bar to go with these springs, will it improve steering much?

gives it a tighter ride once u add strut bars. ur lookin at 120 and up for installation depending on whether or not bolts are seized. within my knowledge, i beelive speedtech does it the cheapest.

unless you like to go out on lapping days or auto-x, just get those s-techs. they're designed to work with stock struts and the ride is still comfortable. chances are if you get coilovers, you'll never adjust them anyways.

if you want some strut bars get some good solid bars. don't get any with pivotal joints because they just flex with the shock towers. some good bars would be passwordjdm, neuspeed, carbing, or even diy bar from home depot lol. it'll be heavier but it will still serve it's purpose.

howbout megan strut bars?

also so i guess im gona get some tein springs. and that should be good enough for me right, is there a specific model or anything, sport?? and how much will a mechanic charge for install, i may ask a friend of a friend to do it who is a mech.

and what height would u recommend or is it jus standard height. i want it to look good and also be comfy enough and not a pain to drive over everysingle driveway or bump with probs or steering sideways

just go with the s-techs. they're like a 1.8 drop in the front and 1.6 in the rear. megan strut bars are garbage. like i said, you don't want any strut bars with pivotal joints or are length adjustable.

if you dont have the money for a quality coilover system, i would recommend going with the better quailty springs the ride of the springs will be much nicer then the ride of cheap crappy coils

anyone know about compressing stock springs? some guy suggested i do that he said $60 he could compress my springs not cut them and the ride quality would be better than any tein lowering spring?

Hey Jeff, do not go with cheap generic coilover/spring from EBay. I think for what you want, Eibach Sportline and Tein S are your best choices.
