the general consenus is going cheap = springs only
if you want coilovers, spend the $2-3k and get quality

If you're not looking to spend a couple thousand on a good, quality coil over, you're only going to make performance and ride quality worse. Just get a set of springs.

Yeah, the cheap popular brands are well known for being cheap, not good. You've heard of BC and Megan because more people can afford them, and if you are going just for looks for your little project Civic or something then yeah, go ahead, but they're not meant to be serious performance parts.

That said, you don't have to go crazy with KW's or Ohlins or anything (unless you're going pro). Check out Stance's lineup. They probably have something that will suit you.

GTWorx Springs. Only performance based spring and tons better than those cheap coilovers. I've lived with both (not just driven for 5minutes) - the BC's are just stiff and valving is a mess. I tried to think "because race car", but it's not.

check out my sig for more info. You don't need to spend 3k+ for higher-end coils just for looks or a handling upgrade. most people won't utilize the potential of high-end coils

I think coils are a bit of a waste unless your stancing or heavy tracking. I'm running a pw jdm front strut, cusco rear strut, whiteline RSB/RCK/Anti-roll kit, and swift sport springs. Its been perfect so far and very good at the track. Adding the rest of the whiteline goodies soon and will report more then.

Easiest fix=good tires.
