I say go for the eibach's. The ride is firm but not too bumping. My opinion is that they give a tighter ride without sacrificing ride comfort

Depends on the shocks your using too

Just make sure you get new shocks with a shorter stroke otherwise your shocks will blow after 5-10k...

I have Apex springs and they are very stiff, huge compromise on ride quality.

Hpwever, they do dump the car and u can get a set of springs and shocks for less than $1g before tax brand new.
