If i could move this i would, if you have a v6 then get the Ground Control! i have them and they are great, also do a search on this topic there is tons of stuff about it.

coilovers

groundcontrol are the best and are the only ones that carry a kit for mx6, at least i think so. I have them and they are very high quality. Their customer serveice is also excellent.

GC's and Tokico Illuminas (adjustables)... the best match for you. Not only can you drop it to whatever height you what, the Illuminas will stiffen/soften your ride. I had 18's as well and these are perfect with that 40/35 series tire. Good luck.

ground controls are the ones that most people use, and everyone seems to like them. they are pretty expensive though. weapon R makes some for the mx6 as well, and they are considerably cheaper. i have only heard of one person that has tried them though, and i can't remember where i saw them.

What are coilovers? I've got 16" rims and just put Eibach coils and KYB struts / lowered about 2inchs, do I need them? What do they do?

coilovers

Coilovers are adjustible. In the way that you can change your ride height. My gc's can be adjusted to drop the car down 3 inches . This would be excellent if you have a body kit and you dont want the body kit to scrape the road. In other words you can adjust your ride height to perfectly suit your driving needs taking into consideration the road surface, body kit, and styling. I had intrax susp. and opted for the GC's because they can lower your car alot more, but yet i can always raise it back up to almost stock height. They are expensive though but they are worth it.

coils

It is adjustible by raising up the car (no need to take of wheels and tires) and reaching inside the fender well and adjusting the spring perch from the outside.

You can cut the perch off the strut to drop it even more but then the ride will be really rough. dont do that until you put them on with perch and then drive and see how you like it. if you are thinking about getting a kit dont cut them yet.
