Do things right and get coilovers.

Or you can go with airbag suspension, but comes with higher price ticket.

If you decide to go with poor mans way (springs & strut, shocks) then....

Get tein if you see lots of snow in your area....
Get tein if your roads are crappy full of pot holes...
If not then H&R, eiabach, and progress springs will do just fine.

Get KYBs if you want stiffer ride with good handling....
Get Monroe if you want little comfortable ride....
If not then you don't have a choise except for OEM.


However coilover is the best way to lower the car but you've gotta show the money. I know not much about coilover choices though.

and after you done this like the rest of us. buy over time extra axels,wheel bearings, tie rods inner and outer , lca both sides , strut mounts and racinling endlinks. ive been dropped over 3 years and this has been the worst year for my supension. but may be an extreme and rare case compared to others.

if you still go ahead. my progress and kyb setup has been good to me , but honestly if i had to do it again i would like to try teins on monroe struts and shocks
