    Turn-in Concepts is the absolute best place to contact. If performance and doing things the right way are your priorities, then write down some objectives and what you want to use the car for etc., then get on the phone with them.

    Also, search around the stickies both here and on NASIOC. If you have an STi, IWSTI.com has a bunch of articles specific to upgrading the STi suspension.

    You're looking at two paths, Springs/struts or Coilovers. What exactly are your goals and what do you use the car for?

    Turn-in Concepts and Race Comp engineering have the best suspension products in my opinion.

    Are you doing this for a daily driver, or for a car you'll end up tracking?

    If you want a comfortable daily and only care about lowering it, then just get springs. Epic and Swift and some select others are designed to work with the stock struts, they will give the car a nice drop and stance, and give you a slight performance increase.

    I'd stay away from Tein S-Tech and alike springs if you care about performance and don't want a worse ride than stock.

    i have COBB springs and they work fine. only problem i had was installing the rear since i didn't have the stock tophats. I thought they would throw my camber waay out of whack since i used to lower my hondas back in the day, but the springs didnt. i just threw them on and took my car to Firestone and it turns out i just needed aftermarket camber bolts for the front for just a little extra camber. Rallysportdirect sells them for about 25 bucks.

    If you're going to track the vehicle.. Cobb springs aren't the way to go. They're fine for daily driving.
