What is your budget, what sort of driving do you do (track/autocross or dd) and how much lower do you want to go?

You should look into the H&R sport springs. I dont have them myself but i AM about to get some within the next 3 weeks. On FSWERKS they cost $245 but the coilover race springs are cheaper ($179) i don't get it. But just throwin somethin out there for ya.

Get the Omni kit from Massive & then that opens the door for '00-'05 kits which give's you a lot more option's. I'd go a upper end fixed kit then a low end coilover kit. Koni yellow's w/ H&R spring's or a K/W coilover kit.

Thinkin about the hr springs. I don't really need coil overs, yeah they are cool but a good sport spring with a new shock suits me just fine. Ill get them ordered with some other fine new goodies just in time for the fest this year.
