Id just get a set of Eibach Sportlines. I have ground controls and i regret buying them. If your going to get coilovers get "real" coilovers like teins,tanabe ect.. otherwise just get a set of springs in my opinion.

Personally I would get a set of coilovers. A plus to those is you can adjust the height. If you get springs I would also recommend geting new shocks and struts

yeah bro, If you're only looking to spend around $150 then go with either the eibach's or goldline's in the ecelica store...good coilovers are much more expensive...I'm looking at tanabe coilovers right now and they are in the neighborhood of like $800 or so right now...and JIC coilovers are over $1,000...good luck tho
