I'd go w/ the Eibach sportline system= springs/dampers. I got mine from the tirerack for $441.00. I had the frpp's k/w springs w/ svt dampers before & wanted to go lower w/ a fixed platform package. I do like the H&R sport cup kit= 2.6'' drop, but that would of been to low for me, being a DD.

Checkout Raceland USA. They have brand new coilovers for $369.00. I just put them on. They're great. If I could figure out how to post a photo I would have, sorry.

Depends, if you plan to drive your car to the store then yes, but if you want to somewhat daily it and some track, since they do not have a dampening setting they aren't all that adjustable for a proper track setup

Well they would probably work for me. This isn't a car I would take to a track, just alittle fun backroad driving from time to time. Thanks.

Racelands

These have only been out less than a week. So I'm not sure how any one can question the quality. I can say that they, appear to be built very well, they went on with no problem, the cars sits perfect and the ride is solid but as expected, bumpy. I'm running 205/40/17 tires on a stock wheels. I believe they have a 2 year warranty.
