Best coilovers for a daily Drivin 01 lude

Im looking for suggestions and opinions on the best coilovers for my prelude.Im aware that there are plenty of other threads on suspension but I wanted to make my own.I have a 2001 Lude with about 191k miles on it and its a daily driven car to work,school,etc,I am never going to track this car.So I'm not looking to by $1,000+ BC,D2,etc coils for a car that Im not going to track and with high mileage.Here's what I've been looking at.

Function and Form Type 1's or Type 2's (Heard they're a really rough ride.Half love them, half hate them.Opinions?)

Tein Street Basic or Tein Super Street (Heard Tein is overrated in general.Opinions?)

Everyone suggests and loves the Koni/GC combo (The only strut/spring combo I'll do.Weksos wants $955 + tax which is ridiculous,so any suggestions on where to get them cheap?Separately or packaged,doesnt matter.)

Im just looking for a nice drop (On some XXR 527's/MB Battles or Rota SlipStream's/Enkei RPF1's) and a comfortable ride if possible.Im aware that Megan,D2,and BC make great coils but they're too much for a DD.Trying to keep it under $1,000, $900 if possible.Leave your opinions on any other coils that are good,and for the Koni/GC, suggestions on what i should get with them (bump stops,custom housing,etc).Sorry for the long ass thread, Im very thorough.Your opinions would be great!Thanks!

Pretty much got flamed for driving like a jackass and was told to slow down. And I'll be damned, slowing down fixed it.

Re: Best coilovers for a daily Drivin 01 lude

Are "coilover threads" the new "header threads"?

I mean there are two in the top 10 recent list. If it was about camber correction, ball joint seperation, upgrading the control arms, ok. Here's the coilver thread formula:

I want a lower stance
I want opinions
I have xxx dollars to spend
I AM DD-ING THE CAR
How will it affect my tire/rim combo
Multiple answers regarding the three main respectable setups
(FNF / KONI-GC / BC, sometimes K-SPORT)

Another Coilover Thread

Gotta agree with oggs, unnecessary.
