    Threads like this make me lol.

    "Legit" coilovers are going to cost upwards of $2000. What are you trying to get out of putting coils on your car? What do you mean too bouncy? The lower you put your car the stiffer your suspension will be and the more "bouncy" it will feel.

    Good coilovers are going to cost between $2000 and $3000.. and the ride is going to be harsh.

    lol jk, yeah I second what everyone else already said. Be prepared to dish out $2K+... Have you considered a spring/strut setup? Might get you where you want to be for a lower price...

    All coilovers will ride stiff unless you have them jacked way up. If you just want it low just get some ksports or something. They will ride rough if put to low but have decent adjustability for a $900 coilovers setup. A really good setup is about $3k up to around $5k but couldn't see anyone spending that on a street car.

    Check out the gtworx - rce yellow + bilstein coilovers. Though I'm not sure if they are made for the older models.

    You might be able to get some used good coilovers for $1,000.

    He said "legit" though, not super high end. Good stuff starts at $1,500-$1,700.

    Personally though, I somehow doubt that coilovers are a good idea for what he's doing with the car.

    From the sounds of things, coilovers aren't really what the OP needs anyway.

    The OP said he needs coilovers so who are we to argue?

    Legit coilovers will be easy to find for that price. They'll have a legit name on them, possibly ship to you from a legit business with a legit address and legit return program, come in a legit box with tape on it, and will be made of legit metal and plastic. That's about where anything legit ends.
