depends what you're trying to achieve.

lowering springs on stock struts will ruin your stock struts quite fast. however most people on a budget go this route. something like a h&R sport or even race.

coilover sleeves are a bit stiffer, offer a bit of adjustability in terms of height. unfortunately i don't have much expertise in this area.

and full coil overs offer full adjustability, being able to tune them exactly to your liking, dampening and height wise. something like tein flex.

I had Eibach Pro-kit before and it was very comfortable ride, a lot of people used stock shocks with it but I had tokico blue's

then I ordered Tein SS, same smooth ride on the most comfortable setting and when you harden it, it feels nice and stiff. My friend has Tananbe on his EK and it's semi-race style stiff yet comfortable enough for DD

sleeves - if you get the koni-yellow's you be good

but in the end it really comes down to what you want.

Koni Yellows With GC's for an affordable track/street set up and you can customize your rates when ordering.

Whatever you choose, factor in alignment.

All depends on budget man. I have the same delema right now. But coilovers will be your best bet if you have the cash. Either way you need to get those stock struts outta there.

koni yellow strut alone is like around $800-900 new

springs are $350 new

so u are looking around $1200 if u gonna get new

budget coilovers like TEIN, H&R's basica setup roughly ranges around $1300-1600
