    what exactly are you trying to accomplish? just lowering the car? having a fully adjustable suspension to get the right stiffness?

    you're right about springs only; thats truly not the way to go since the OEM shocks probably arent a good fit. it'll probably wear the shocks out faster. there are other shock/spring combos that are a better match which would be cheaper than coilovers.

    i have KW coilovers that are height adjustable. the stiffness is a little tighter than stock so i didnt see the need for a fully adjustable set.

    For springs I would go with H&R, I dont like ebachs, they are trash in my book. If your willing to fork out a few bucks get some Bilstein Pss9's or 10's

    if you just want to lower your car, coilovers may be overkill. H&R springs would probably be fine, but make sure you get new shocks too b/c the OEM shocks wont match IMO.

    if u still want to go with coilovers, the KWs are nice and are made of stainless steel. i've also heard good things about the ST coilovers made of galvanized steel but i wouldnt get those if you live in an area that gets the slightest amount of ice/snow.

    Bilstein makes a good shock to combine with the H&R's. Another good shock would be the Koni Yellow's.

    For coilovers, definitely can't go wrong with either Bilstein or KW. I personally have KWv3's and love the ride difference. If ride height is all you're looking for, you can go with the KWv1's.
