they are relatively cheap if you are thinking of using your stock shocks... although your stock shocks wont last very long with being that much lower w/stiffer springs.

koni yellow's would probably work great but are pricey.

Like already stated ground controls are "cheap" as far as coilovers go but they are just a sleeve/spring combo so you would need to buy shocks or reuse your stock ones and the stock ones will most deffinately blow out with those springs so by the time you buy a quality shock to match with the GCs you might as well buy a nice set of full body coilovers , depending on your needs , a GC/koni setup would be perfect for some performance driving due to the higher spring rate compared to some other coilovers in that price range

To the op= I would figure out what your trying to do? Add coilovers just to have coilovers or what? There is a reason why quality coilovers cost more.
