Good and cheap don't belong in the same sentence if you're talking about suspension. Remember this is what keeps your tyres on the road, and your tyres are the only thing stopping you from flinging off into a tree.

Wait until you can afford a good setup...like what I"m doing. Damn I need to save more money faster...

I got my Tein S.Techs for 170. Springs are all pretty cheap, coilovers get kinda pricey.

The Tien full damper suspension kit is probably one of the nicer kits that I have seen. I was gonna get the kit for my car for around 1100.00 installed but my buddy bought it first. He loves it and finds the ride is still comfortable. He rides 19 inch rims and has no problems

I'm running the Eibach Pro springs with KYB AGX shocks. I love this setup, although I have no basis for comparison with any other setup.
The KYB's are known to get a bit "fussy" over big bumps, but hey...if you lower your car and expect it to ride like a caddy, youre on the wrong planet. Haha.

I have the Tein S Tech springs on with the koni yallow adjustable. Its actually a really good ride, and not that low for the crappy roads we have in St. Louis.

Like someone said earlier I personally would never go cheap on suspension parts just because thats what keeps my car driving properly.

Coilovers you can adjust your right height and springs are a set height.

Ha! Try Choteau, MT Population 1800...farmers. Visited my parents and I dont think there was more than a mile we werent on a roller coaster.

Everyone here is right dont get cheap suspension or tires. Your tires are the only safety feature on your car that touches the ground! Ive got the same set up as Poopy except for KYB GR2 struts for cost effectiveness and if I had known the positive effects of it I would have done it when I bought the car last summer. Im runnin 215/45/17s and have only rubbed a couple times on inner fender at extreme turns hitting bumps at speed.
