the one egz is very pricey. I would say the h&r is the best value, best appearing drop. But if you like to auto-cross or want a more adjustable suspension i would suggest h&r springs paired with gaz adjustable shocks and struts.

I myself have sprint sprints (2" drop) with kyb adjustables.

my car rocks, i lub it. I got a magnaflow exhaust coming in a day or two.

I'm pretty sure my suspension setup is ideal minus some p-51 shims I'm about to buy.

my suspension is quite noisey, that's my only complaint. maybe i need to go stiffer on the agx. =)

zx3freak, i always say it's a matter of personal preference.
if those GAZ for $659 are adjustable and you need something adjustable for track settings vs street settings, they sound like a good find.

otherise the eibach complete with springs/dampers/anti-roll kit runs in the $600-$750 price range I believe.

35mm drop with the springs that come in their $659 package.

you could order Gaz components seperately, and throw on sportline springs or whatever you desire.
