hey glitch, it's kinda of hard to explain so i'll try my best:

springs - obviously used to let your car bounce and take the road's bumps and grinds.

shocks - to make sure your car doesn't bounce TOO much w/ just springs. gives the car's suspension a dampening effect.

(real)coilovers - comes w/ shocks AND springs AND the adjustment collar so that you can adjust your ride up and down.

fake coilovers (coilover sleeves) - comes w/ just the spring and adjustment collar. usually people that use this blow out their stock shocks and need to buy aftermarkets, or swap the stock shocks w/ aftermarket ones as soon as they buy the coilover sleeves.

anyone else want to add or change anything i said feel free. hope i helped some.

thanks man, that helped alot... so that's the reason why coilovers are so much more expensive than just shocks and springs? because they have the adjustment feature ?

glitch, yes real coilovers that include the spring/shock/and collar are very expensive.

you can also purchase the fake ones which are just coilover sleeves...basically a coilover w/o shocks..

both types have adjustable height features.
