The ones made for the car work great. BC makes some, and K-sport make some. There are plenty of other companies, but many people prefer these ones because the strut mount is threaded so that when you adjust it to lower the car, you don't loose any suspension travel.

Ebay universal ones work, but it is highly recommended that you get some aftermarket springs (like 25-40 ea.) and swap them in place of the ebay springs. It will work out pretty nice if you get the spring rates right.

They are warrantied and you can choose the spring rate you like.

They are about 400 bucks.

Yeah, buy those and you'll regret it on the street. Twisted Noodle, the K-Sports have perfect spring rates for a mildly driven street car that sees quite a bit of track time. I bet it would be bearable to ride in it while on the street even.

Also what you guys need to remember is stock struts are valved for stock spring rates. So by adding those $400 coilovers to anything that is not valved specifically for those spring rates or the rates available will be a waste of money as the struts will just blow out.

Quoted for the truth. Stock basic struts suck for any aftermarket spring rates on them.

This is true, so when you ordered your springs with the kit, you would assume what type of struts you'ed be using and order the springs accordingly.

When ordering, (if) I would personally be placing the order and would question the combination you chose if I thought there would be a problem.

... That being said, I am only human and can make mistakes... No really, ask my wife..lol
