Arrow Suspension Q's

Hey, Im hoping to order my rims this weekend and have a few questions about suspension. First of all, I basically have next to no money to spend. I'm chipping in all I have and my parents are going to help me out a bit where I'm short. I defenitely want to lower the car, but I'm not sure whats the most cost effective way for me to do this. (I can probably only afford around $200 for suspension max) I was origionally planning on just getting new springs (because it was the cheapest option), but then found some stuff on the forum about how this setup would kill your stock shocks. So if i were to go the route of springs, what else would i have to get (shocks, etc.), and how much would that cost?

I would defenitley preffer coil-overs, but due to their cost I never seriously considered them. then i Found these:
http://cosmoracing.com/productinfo.asp?cid=66&pid=315

Has anyone heard anything about these/ known anyone who has tried them. The seem to be an good deal (too good), and i was wondering about the quality. Cosmo also has an "Evo I" set for our car that costs $130. If either of these are halfway decent, it definitely seems like the route to go.

Thanks for any advice or comments you have.

seriously, dont go cheap on suspension. If you want coilovers just save the money. And I recomend ground control coilovers, and either KYB or Tokico for a good strut at a lower price. My personal opinion, save a grand and get true coilovers. That is my next suspension step. To do a GOOD coilover sleeve setup you are spending around $800+ anyway, so it makes sense to spend the extra $200 and get the good stuff.

i suggest you save up a little more...just like they're all saying already.. nothing worse than a cheap suspension setup.. it'll make your ride feel cheap as hell. Just save up and get some ground controls paired with some tokico's... then save up some more and upgrade to the tein ss.

Ok, thanks guys. I'm only going to be driving the car for another year anyways, so I think I'll just put what I have saved toward a good setup on my next car.

I didnt' know that Tokico and Tiens made shocks for our cars.
Or does shocks for the 4 cyl fit the 6 cyl as well?

Tein doesn't make shocks - just true coilovers.
