    That really depends on what you are looking for in a spring. RCE offers two different springs geared towards different markets.. basically more performance, or more comfort. Both are good options for most people.

    As far as coilovers, there are a couple good brands out there (and a lot of trash).. but unless you're looking to spend over $2000 I would just stick to a good spring/strut combo.

    I've never seen anything good about HKS coilovers.. though I'm sure they're better than a lot of the options out there. I would be surprised if they provide the level of quality that you would get from a good spring/strut combo at nearly half the cost.

    The fact that you would most likely have to ship them to Japan for servicing would be a deal breaker for me in and of itself. Most coilovers will require a much more frequent service interval than quality struts.

    If you're really interested in a good performance coilover that won't suck on the street, I highly recommend either RCE Tarmac 2s, or KW v3s.


    If you find that you don't need the adjustability of coilovers (not sure why you or 99% of people actually would), and you car will be mostly daily driven, with some weekend track use.. RCE offers a GTWORX/Bilstein Impreza Cup Sport Kit, which comes with your choice of their Yellow or Black springs (depending on the comfort level you're looking for), and revalved Bilstein struts set up specifically for the spring you want to use with it.

    I am with MainFrame on this one. the adjustability of coilovers is crazy. and you don't really need it on the street. for the track however infinite adjustability can be great. I don't personally like coilovers on the street at all.
    however, if you spend the money to get a quality set like what MainFrame already suggested and set them up well. then you can have an amazing handling car with a somewhat decent ride.

    one thing to note. the words cheap and coilovers don't mix well.

    also you didn't state what you'd be doing with the car. street only, track only. mix of both. regular track days or 1-2 times a year track days?
