budget?

for price and value, I think Tokico Illuminas can't be beat. Price only, Koni Special (red) is prolly the best. Ultimate 'budget' shock would be Koni Sport (yellow). Cheap 'performace' shock would be KYB AGX.

I wouldn't bother with any other shocks.

An EL is essentially a 4 door Si and most of the mechanical parts will be interchangeable.

i second H&R sport springs. Excellent ride quality and perfect drop for EKs. Mine are mounted on Tokico Illuminas and the combo has been great so far.

I will be vary of Teins tho due to so many ppl complaining about the rust issue. I havent had them personally so i cant confirm this but if you read and do your research...you will know.
