    90 bucks a strut? Something used, I guess. You screwed yourself by putting those lowering springs on stock struts, and your budget is too low for anything new that is really worth putting on your car.

    You should be able to find a used stock setup at that price, but you'll be right back here again if you put those springs on there.
