First of all, the car comes with an EXCELLENT coilover setup from the factory. If you want to just lower it I would suggest either Eibach Pro Kit or Swift springs. If you just have money to play around and want to actually improve on the car's handling, then I suggest KW V3's. They are excellent coilovers w/ external oil reservoirs on all shocks.

many people also like Bilstein PSS9's.
There are just soooo many named brand springs I just have nc what to get.. I just want everyone to pick one out for me.. Is they like one that killllls the others?

i run the eibach pro kit. both are progressive rate springs, and both drop about an inch. however, if i had to do it all over again, i would go with swift. i have heard nothing but good things about swift.



if you want to go lower than this safely, i would get bilstein pss9

For spring on OEM struts you have only two choices IMO Eibach or Swift.

Save your money and go with a light drop spring or get the PSS9

KW3 are double adjustable with stiffer spring rates, it will require attention to dial in both rebound and compression and come at a premium price (well worth it if your getting into serious racing and using R compounds).

I love my Skunk2's, best drop IMO.

All those 1 inchers..eeh, really not worth it. My buddy has eibach, and people are always telling him he should drop his car, he always has to explain that it is droped..but thats just my 2 cents.
