i like both the hotchkis and the eibach sportlines--and both will go decently with 18"s

something else you might want to look into if you have a limited budget are the tein springs--genereally about $50 to $100 cheaper and doesn't sacrifice quality (in this case, you can get more than what you pay for) thumbsup

It all depends on how much of a drop you want. For a little drop, TRD or Eibach Pro Kit work great. Eibach Sportlines give around a 2 inch drop...But since you have 18s, I wouldn't drop too much grin

eibach pros give a 1.2" drop in the front and a 1.1" drop in the rear. price is usually somewhere around $230

eibach sportlines give a 1.8" drop in the front and a 2.4" drop in the back (obviously if you get 18s you will need a superlow profile tire. price is usually somewhere around $240

hotchkis superform spings give about a 2" drop and cost around $260

tein s-techs give a 1.4" drop all around and are about $170 (obviously the much cheaper choice)

and all of the above brands offer great quality (eibach more so than the others--but hotchkis & tein are not far behind) thumbsup

All name brand springs will perform about the same. It just depends how much of a drop you want & how much you wanna spend. Tanabe, Tein & HKS are the three less expensive.
