Well its 400$ off retail Corner Eight Sport Suspensions (C8 Sport) - Confidence in Every Corner if you can email them and get some spring rates numbers or call them they could be pretty good. I am inclined to try em cause for that money if they work they are awesome.

When you turn a lap on real suspension, it all makes sense. Tein Flex are the gateway to real suspension...I need a set of Motons.

Here's the thing though: most of us don't race like you guys. I completely understand when you say that real suspension costs money. Problem is: most of us won't even BEGIN to explore the limits of a suspension or push the car enough to actually feel a difference.

Back when I was looking to drop my car I was getting so much mixed bullshit from people I was going crazy. SOO many people suggested so much ****, even though I specifically stated: "I need something for the street, to lower the car, make it look better, and not bounce around like a dumbass on some bullshit setup, all ON A BUDGET".
After not getting a single good answer I just got a set of FM2 springs on KYB agx shocks from Scuba Steve for a good price. Couldn't be happier. Ride is acceptable, car looks nice now instead of like a 4x4, and they are more than enough for my cornering needs (which really aren't anything spectacular).

NOW

I ask this question again: why wouldn't those coilvers Artie linked for 350 shipped work on a street car?

Seriously. Because if they're not bad I'd consider getting them in the future. I want a drop just a tad bit lower than the fm2 springs give me. My only question would be what kind of spring rates they come with. It mentioned "racing" and "dr!fting" in the description so I'm assuming high spring rates.
