    i went with rce yellow springs, and koni inserts.

    gave my car a nice lower stance, and firmer ride.

    just my opinion.

    Depends if they come with pillowballs, brand, style (some are for track, osme for street)
    Personally I'm eventually getting coilovers just because theyre adjustable. Once the snow starts getting deep, I don't want to lose my bumper.

    +1...all depends on what you get.

    My coilovers ride better than my blown stock STI suspension I took off, that's for sure. But I really love the ride they have over the stock suspension, just for daily driving.

    ****ty cheap coilovers are going to ride like crap. More track style dedicated coilovers like many of the Tein offerings are going to be rather harsh on the street. Some are a mix of performance and streetability. Find some brands you are interested in, and research them to high hell to see what others say about them (or find locals with similar coilover setups and see if you can get a ride and form your own opinions).

    The Feals are actually what I have and I love them. They are solid and you do get a lot of road feel. But you'll hit bumps and stuff as hard as any other normal suspension. Not gonna lie, they are stiff but to me, they are bearable.

    I am very happy with my setup - Epic Springs and Koni Yellows. It's a nice compromise, between stock and coilovers.

    If you talk to Odi, the owner of Feal, he designed them with the ability to be a track coilover, and a DD streetable coilover. He has them on his two daily drivers...and on his drift car

    These always sounded interesting to me - yes they are bags. Too much junk in the trunk though, and questionable how they manage alignment over a two inch range. Also, 2" is too low for the suspension geometry. Moot point now that they are no longer made....

    theres always going to be "better" everything, if you have the money for it... but feals seem like a great coilover. when i think about getting a new suspension setup im sure ill try to drive down to nj and have mikie take me for a drive so i can see how they feel. right now im on Epic springs (like Lokey) and KYB struts which im happy with the setup. theres a bunch of different options out there
