Lol... cut springs :eekfacepalm:

There's a coilover GB right now.

I tried to price out what it'd cost for me to do coilovers in the front, w/e rear springs, kyb agx (front/rear), front camber plates, and an alignment. It came out to between $800-$1000.

Sounds expensive, but unless you go with some sort of stock replacement shocks and keep the springs, and be disatisfied or spend the money.

well i have the money but that doesn't necessarily mean i wanna spend all of it. i was hoping to spend somewhere around 6-700 and keep her low but if thats to much to ask for would it be better to buy a nice set of springs and struts?

Also as far as I know there isn't a great way to do coilovers in the rear. From what I've seen it's been done, but the car wasn't built for the extra pressure on a certain section of the A-arm. You'll want to do a search and look into it. I'm not planning on doing coilovers in the rear.

But when I priced things (give or take some, I tried to add a little on top for shipping, etc.):
Front coilovers: $200
Rear springs: $200-300?
KYB AGX: $300+
Front Camber plates: $100
Alignment: Less than $100

I'm not planning on using any aftermarket bushings or any other aftermarket strut tower bars or sway bars.

I think $600-700 could potientially work for better suspension, but who know if you'll be satisfied.

Id add some money to that if you want to do it right. Cheapset (quality) set of camber plates is at least 170 bucks. And you forgot RCAs. I'd also use the t3 upper hat system.

You can CL for coilovers, but for higher end struts (like the ones you will need for coilovers) are not locally stocked.
