full kits come with both springs and shocks as one... the shock and spring would be well matched... but the only down side is price of these kits

well do you know how to properly set up a coilover setup? if so give details... if not stick to springs and shocks.... they are better for you

yeah sure

ok sping and shock setup combines a set of springs with a set of shocks... can be from the same manufacturer but not ussually

coilovers set 1: in this case it's a sleeve that fits over the shock and is threaded so that a spring perch can move up and down... it replaces the spring part of the above combination

coilovers setup 2: this is a "proper" coilover system where by the shock body has the threads for the adjustable spring perch the springs and shocks come as a full set up and are tested in that combination
