KW or Stasis coilovers for a more serious setup

ECS tuning bilstein adjustables with H&R sport or race springs for a less expensive and less serious setup.

for my street car? are you going to autoX, track day it? or just want it a bit tighter and lower?

I don't put laps on my car.. so I'd get the Bilstein/Eibach combo

V3s are useless if he's not going to take advantage of all the adjustability.

bilstein with H&R sport, or if you want to save a little more, get te stassis version of the koni coilovers. they are definitely worth the money in terms of ride quality and body control.

Adjustable height.

ECStuning.com, get the bilstein/H&R combo. That's what I'd recommend.

I think theres some posted some pics of the ECS setup, do a search here and on AW. Lots of people run it, it's the spring/strut combo to have if you aren't gonna go coilover IMO

I'd definitely get the Bilstein Sports. YOu can order them at www.supremepower.com along with your choice of springs. Get Neuspeeds or H&R. I personnally have the Neupseed Sports, but that may not be low enough for you. I like to keep camber tire wear to a minimum so I am sticking to them for now, but the Race springs are perfect with grooves shocks to get the ride you want without blowing your load on C/Os.

Check my sig. I have Neuspeed Race springs and Koni shocks. VERY HAPPY with them. I'd also consider the grooved Bilsteins. I would have, but the Konis were already on my car when I bought it (not unhappy by any means!!)

Vogtland/KONI make an awesome combination for the aggressive street driver. Adjustable damping and a great ride height.
KONI's are noticeably more comfortable than Bilsteins, and definitely my preference for area with really bad roads.

Unless I didn't see it, no one said H&R Coilovers. They are more expensive, but worth it. The 400hp K04 S4 at our GTG had a set on, and it was amazimg.

I just put the same set up in my car and the front is lower than the rear. Is that normal? I mean it is a big difference.
