Kyb was my vote. Even if they sound cheap doesn't mean they are cheaply made. Especially if inside a budget. I suggest getting a spring compressor unless someone is doing this for you. Also I think it's Corbins install but not sure http://www.2gnt.com/?d=Strut_Install
Also might want to invest in the 15$ camber mod http://www.2gnt.com/index.php?d=Camber_Mod. If you need any help more than likely Pm Corbin and he can give you answers to specific questions...

I, like many others on here, run the Tokico HP's and Eibach Pro Kit springs. It's a cheap and effective setup, and I have run it for years now. If you want a little more adjustability, maybe consider getting the Tokico Illuminas.

Just my two cents..

I really like the tein springs over eibach..Not to mention a little cheaper too.

The only caution I would have is buying the springs on ebay. too many counterfits floating around on there. Spend a couple extra bucks and buy them from a trusted retailer

Otherwise KYB's and TEIN's

I voted for the KYB/Tein combo. I don't have any experience with the KYB, however I do run the Tokico HP's with the Tein S-techs and I've never had a single problem now in the past 3 years they've been installed.

Just buy a Tien Basic coil over setup. Not all that much more than the piece together kits. I regret going with Koni/eibach only because for 300-400 more i could have gotten a much better quality kit.

I run the KYB agx adj. struts and Megan 2" lowering springs and haven't had any trouble yet. Their just high enough where it doesn't hit the bumpstops. Also the ride quality is quite nice.
