Coilovers are a great suspension modification. THey are adjustable in height, camber, stiffness, etc. The thing about them is for a GOOD set you are looking at 1200$+ And for springs 200-260 and shocks/struts like 600+ for koni's or about 300 for SS/TC struts

So for about 400 dollars more than shocks and struts, you can have fully adjustable coilovers.

Hmm, I checked them out on eBay and thats the price I found.
So, coilovers are completely adjustable to whatever height you want.
Ok, thanks, I still didnt GET them lol. Still a NOOB at most of this.

Ok, pretty much, whats the cheapest way of getting a noticeable drop to the ride? Without getting a POS.

i have the k-sport 36 way adjustable's on my car love em they have an adjustable spring perch so i can keep at certain bump and rebound with my spring's and the mount is adjustable so i can go lower with out messing with spring stiffness or softness... i personally invested in them cuz i do alot of track and auto-x racing and they are wonderful... but honestly if you dont plan on doin alot of track type stuff i would just do spring on stock strut's and call it a day

yah i love racing even in a slow car... but the sportlines on stock strut's give off an AMAZINGINGLY aggressive stance and would actually perform well for the track... and like some one said you could always upgrade to someone that's got some old ss/sc or ss/tc struts layin around for added performance and maintaining good streetablilty
