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.
