help with coilover and shock combo

so the other day me and my bro were talking about my suspension. my car was wrecker into a wall once and he thinks the springs migth have been messed up since my caster and some other stuff is kinda messed up. no its not anything else becouse we pretty much rebuilt both sides of the suspension exept the spings. i want something stiffer but i wanna keep stock ride heigth or maybe even a .5 to 1 inch drop. i was looking at these coilovers bt they kinda look like ebay type stuff.

92-96 Honda Prelude Coilover Sleeves from NRG at Andy's Auto Sport

are those any good? i am also looking at kyb gs 2s, i think thats the name for shocks but what do u guys think of these. my budget is kind of around 200 to 250

Koni Yellows with Ground Control coilovers.

Your springs are not messing with your caster or alignment in any way. If they were damaged it would be obvious.

Re: help with coilover and shock combo

Ebay springs chug dick. Trust me. 9/10 times the springs aren't the same right at all, and it's just bad news dude. I would trust cut springs over ebay springs, and that says a lot.
