    You'll need new struts with a stiffer spring rate.

    I don't see the benefit to a coilover setup on a DD application.

    Pick up a set of Koni Yellow / Bilstein shocks and RCE Yellow springs. Decent drop (looks), not too low (handling), and proper damping. Pair with that a set of Whiteline Com-C front mounts and leave your OE rear tophats (or upgrade to Group-Ns). Talk to Turn-in Concepts about the order, and see if they recommend going with any kind of a spacer for the rear. You'll have a better setup (in regards to both comfort and handling) for the money invested than ANY coilover in that price range.

    Unless your stock struts have high mileage on them there is no real reason to upgrade them along with the springs if you are just doing a mild drop. Most of those springs are designed to be used with the stock struts. You might have to just trim the bump stops or get different ones. I would use the money left over for larger rear sway,rear camber bolts and a custom alignment. -1.5 camber all around will transform the car.

    Ok I'm not familiar with suspension at all. This is all new to me. I guess my main question is if I were to only get shocks now and struts and such later would the money before wasted on getting the shocks solely now and not bundling up and getting them both at once.
