How much money do you want to spend. I have ksports which are the same as D2's. There just over a grand, I would have gotten stance but I was offered a deal that no one would be able to pass up.

KW is going to be the best handling of the coilovers but are expensive, will still give you low but not as low as say Stance Coilovers and BC extreme low coilovers (FYI jump on the Stance group buy on CSS if you want the Stance coilovers with a better spring rate and they are a better price than normal). BC racing is also another good option for handling and some low. This thread has quite a bit of information, the stance coilovers in the group buy are 8k front 9k rear I believe.
