coilovers are adjustable and the ride isn't as smooth someone correct me if i'm wrong. I have prokit springs with Tokico HP Struts/Shocks

LOL.. the second rule of import tuning is DON'T TALK ABOUT IMPORT TUNING!

yes welcome!! my experience with coilovers is that it's not comfortable whatsoever, i kinda hate taking my car places sometimes cause of the rough ride. springs are more for the street.

Coilovers can be comfortable if you buy a top end set. I used to have JIC SF-1 full cooilovers on my 95 Eclipse they werent adjustable stiffness wise but was a great ride and excellent performance, the only down side was they cost me about $1,200.

welcome.

check out Tein S-Tech lowering springs, one of the best in the market! there's a guy on ebay that is selling them for $129 total. i think his name is kurumamotoring thumbsup
