Eibach Sportline springs with some Tokico shocks would be fine, but if you can afford it get some Koni Yellows.

Either that, or pay the cash for some Tein Basic/SS coilovers.

Mmm... Most online retailers will be around the same price, and most shops you can walk into will be higher than the web but every once in a while you come across a good deal. Might want to just look on Eibach's website and see who their retailers are and give them a call.

Watch for a used one to pop up. I got my tein basics for a little under 500, and they give you a ride like stock while at the same time letting you lower. Plus they still cut out quite a bit body roll.

If you go with Eibach than go with Sportlines, they lower your car more.

Teins will pop up in the classifieds section of V6P every so often. I know mine will when I move on to better suspension.

I got my omnis for 450, but they are stiff...I had megan racing springs with tokico blues, rode real smooth, and it was really cheap on ebay. However, I do recommend coilovers from the start.
