Main difference is that with lowering springs you cant lower the car very much until you run out of strut travel but, with seperate height and preload coilovers (which most of them are) you can lower the car and you wont run out of strut travel. Struts/shocks soak up irregularites in the road surface so when a car is to low with oem struts you have no travel left whick makes for a not so good ride and sloppy handling. There is much more to it then just this but, you get the ideai am fairly new to the aftermarket world of cars. i was wondering what are the differences between coilovers and using lowering springs. i know price is a big difference but what other differences are there if any. thanx
tien>>ksportthose are both quality, you can't go wrong with either one
tiens are better but for the money, and as weaksauce (mike) will tell you, the AWR setup with Bilstein dampers is the best bang for buck coilover setup out there.
It will cost you about 2 grand but you'll never have to worry about them again.

you'll also want to get camber plates with this setup for the front :tup:
sound about right mike?
