    Man if you have that kind of money to spend you could get a half decent set of coilovers...I found some the other day on Ebay for $679.00 i believe they were Godspeed....Unfortunately for me my money is going elsewhere right now...Also it really all depends on what your goals are with the car...track, street, autocross etc....if you drive it as a daily driver and dont really do anything crazy with it you might as well just replace the struts with stock units...

    Can your coilovers be rebuilt?

    If not, I'd look into a strut/spring combo. A few people I know swear by Koni Inserts + RCE Black/Yellow + Group-N tophats
