Its going to be more expensive once you add shocks. You were going to add shocks right? Stock shocks will not effectively dampen and aftermarket spring. Shorter stiffer springs REQUIRE shorter firmer shocks. Bat Inc has a few complete kits for wagons by Eibach, Spax and/or Sachs. They'll be over 400.00 for springs and shocks.

the only setup you can get for around that price range is the SVT suspension setup.

dont go cheap with the suspension, you can go moderate tho. thats what i did. also if you want buy a little at a time. try and find used springs, then save and get some sturts.
