Well I hope you also getting shocks because OEMs dont offer much performance advantage and wear out fast, do dont be cheap and get some good shocks, omni makes a good shock and spring combo and passwordjdm.com sells many omni shock spring, LCA, and camber kits for under $1000

What I would do is invest in the Skunk2 full coilover setup instead of just the springs. They are more costly initially but after replacing the factory struts every 2-3 months at $65 each you will save money in the long run. They include everything you need to just pull the whole strut/spring assembly from the car and replace it with the Skunk2 full coilover. You dont have to change the springs or anything. Plus another advantage is that it will ride just like stock at no matter what height your car is lowered to. They are adjusted from the actual strut mount instead of the sleeve so the strut has the same travel whether its slammed to the ground or all the way up.

well actrually it all depends on what you want to do with the car. if your just looking to drop it a little and gain a little performance in handling the skunk 2 springs will do just fine and then all you need then is a camber kit so you wont go through tires. then if you want to be able to adjust your ride hieght for varous reasons coilovers would be the better choice. then from there you can determine what spring rates would best suite what you wanted to do with your car, drag, scca road course, autocross, just for looks your car your choice, have fun
