If you don't plan on tracking the car I recommend Bilstein PSS9. They can be had for about $1350 new and are very comfy for the street.

I agree...have had a set of PSS9's for six years. They turn up the wick a noticeable amount without becoming tiring.

Bilstein PSS9, if that is above your budget, get the PSS.

PSS9s are a great set of coils! but if thats above ur budget, Buddy Club N+ are good choice(can usually find them for cheap used) or Megan Street/Track Series(not EZ street)I personally have the Megan Street series and i love them! My best advise is to try and get with a local group and see what they have! ride in there cars and see how they feel!

I've put 30k miles on my Megan Tracks without issues. Also, I got them used for $600 with about 20k on them beforehand. I've had people say the tracks ride better than stock.

Buddy Club N+ gets my vote. Everyone that rides in my car is very impressed with the comfort of the suspension.

If you want to build your own to your liking I would recommend koni yellows/ground control spring of your choice. This would be full adjustable and spring rates that you choose, and easy to change with different rates

I'll go ahead and throw in Fortune Auto 500s. They offer an optional upgrade to swift springs with custom spring rates of your choosing and they are very smooth and compliant. I'm running 10k front and rear with a staggered setup and I couldn't be happier with how they perform day to day.

How do h&r compare to pss9?

Lets add kw v1 in there as well since they are like 200 more.

Isn't H&R just re-badged Bilstein? For a street driven car only I would go with the Bilstein PSS, you would likely never touch the adjustment on the PSS9.

I had Fortune 500's with swifts, and have driven cars with Buddy Clubs. The Bilstein's beat them both hands down.
