How deep are your pockets? Depends on how much you have to spend.

ive run many setups....kyb agx/rsr springs, function and form, megan racing, and now STD Standard S5's....and my fave has got to be between the megan racing and STD's....Buddy Club race spec are pretty baller also!

but if you wanna know whats the BEST hands down, then we can start to get technical and talk about Moton Suspension at like 4000$

I've been very, very pleased with them so far. Mine are height and preload adjustable (Type 1's), but they make fully adjustable versions for more- Type 2's. Even being non-adjustable, the feedback, stability, and overall firmness i feel from mine are a totally different world from anything i've had under my car before. I had ground controls for about 2 weeks with KYB GR2's, S-Tech's on GR2's, and stock as a rock- i will never go back to non-coilovers.

Skunk2 coilovers are crap. If there is one bit of advice i can give you, it's this- YOU ALWAYS get what you pay for!!!

When i had my old prelude I had Vision Full Coilovers. It handled like a dream. The only thing was, it is bouncy as hell. But you learn to live with it after a while.

Sorry for intruding as I didn't want to make a new thread on nearly the same topic, but I'm looking at the Type 1 Function & Form coilovers from weksos and they are full coilovers right? That means I don't need to buy new shocks right? I'm just looking to lower my car about 1.5" mainly just for looks.

d2 coilovers

I have D2 RS coilovers which i had bought for a little under $900 shipped.
They come with a spring rate of F 12kg R 9kg, but i wanted the ride to be as least bouncy as possible, so i got the available custom spring rates of F 9kg R 5kg. The ride isnt too bad considering that i have them lowered all the way in front, also on fully stiffened damper settings(36 way dampner and rebound adjustable btw). I probably would have ben happy with the "off the shelf" spring rates also but im satisfied with them so far. My car handles much more responsive now than with the stock sh suspension.
