    ok ok good choices..

    koni is great , eibach, is also a great company, bilstein, and h&r are also great companies in the industry but let the community know your opinions as to why one company is better then the other and or if each set up suits a certain criteria when it comes to selecting a set up or pair...

    my goal here is to gear people to make the right choice when it comes to buying the right suspension set up and products prior to installation.

    thanks guys.

    Dinan- Great products that offer modest-to-great middle of the road comprise between high performance and stock. Cleans up where stock ends.

    I would suggest adding some parameters around the question such as use, ride quality, and budget. That will play a big role into the answer.

    Keeping stock Springs:
    Bilstein: They are a well made product that come with a warranty.

    Want a lowered car that handles better but concerned about budget:
    ISC Suspension: Amazing value and comes with camber plates

    No Budget, want the best ride quality for street or track, best performance on the track.
    MCS: High quality product with accurate adjustments (ever click you notice a difference). This suspension can take off seconds on a track with the right driver compared to another suspension. The front runners in club racing are commonly using it.

    There are a lot of good suspensions that fall in between these characteristics but I would only suggest them depending on the needs/wants of the buyer.

    "I've never heard anything bad about them, so they must be great." I don't agree with that logic
