Default Stock ride height coilovers

Does anyone know of midrange coilovers that can keep stock ride height. My suspension bushes are seized in the right geometry, and I use my car for work which includes shocking roads and lots of big speed bumps. The s2k has done 110k so original suspension is horrible

Thanks

Most should be adjustable to OEM height - searching suggests that BC Racing can be..what is your budget?

Meister R will all go to oem height. That's the reason I I went for their GT1s instead of KWs.

If I can stay at stock height then budget would be around 800 ideally. The car is driven through winter so corrosion resistance is important to me.
​​​A quick search showed corrosion can be an issue with some hence the concern. Thanks for the answers btw

How about getting another younger set of OEM? A lot cheaper I would think and plenty about as people add coilovers. I grabbed a 40k set for future use just in case.

Try a WTB post in For Sale section. I bet a few people have then sitting around. In fact, you could probably take mine as my car will never go back to standard now. PM me!

I got a set of low mileage OEM and theres a slight knock after 10k use, used with new Spoon springs when installed. Given the springs are made to be used with OEM id recommend new as used will go, its just a lottery on when.

Any idea if bilstein b14 will be able to maintain close to stock height? I've heard these are excellent midrange shocks.

Thanks
