What kind of drop does he want? I'll have Eibach Pro-kit lowering springs for sale soon. Only used for 3 months.

i would get s tech over pro kit cuz pro kit and sportline tend to give the boat look. as for shocks go with tokico blues. they are the best bang for the buck if ur tight on budget

For shocks... Tokico Blues.

For springs... Eibach > *

I don't care what ANYONE says about Eibachs in general, they are simply put the best springs you can buy at an affordable price. They have a great warranty, and I've actually been in their manufacturing plant to know that they do their research and they know their stuff. Not to mention that they make everything in house, not outsourcing to China or Taiwan. In my opinion, there is no other shock to buy other than Koni, but if you don't want to fork out the cash for that than settle for something less... But for the springs you shouldn't really choose anything other than Eibachs.
