1) A good spring and strut combo is just as good IMHO than a set of full coilovers.

2) Don't buy those ebay no-name brand coilovers. They're absolutely no good. You people need to stop asking about them.

only reason to get coilovers imo is if you want your car dropped to some specific height not covered by avilable springs...

save your money on a good full coilover setup (e.g. TEIN). if you get the height-only adjustable coils, like ground control, and GOOD koni shocks for example..it'll probably run a little bit less. but that "little bit" is worth it for a full coilover setup.

yup
plus if you get adjustable coilovers, you can have it lower for show use and higher for daily driving, if thats what you want
