You need to tell us what you're going to do with the car. If it's going to see track time, stick to the big names like Koni, Bilstein, H&R, etc. If your main concern is ride height, I would consider JOM first and then BC or similar a distant second.

if you all you care about is hard parking go ahead.

if you care about safety and/or performance forget about it. the damping sucks.


people confuse a stiff ride for good handling.

If you plan on tracking your car, start with something more simple:

swaybars & tires.

They'll make more of a difference now that a set of coilovers, especially if you've never been on a track.

Once you get the cash, then upgrade your suspension to something good.
