Ive always seen tanabe as an eBay type brand that makes "knockoffs" but a lot of people like their exhaust systems, duno about springs. How much are the other springs you are looking at? Like the prices for the different brands. Down here, Eibach pro-kits cost like 200 bux, sportlines are 210...shouldnt be that much more for you up there, and you know its a good name...not trying to encourage you to spend a shitload of money on this but its the kinda thing thats better done right or not at all

Just make sure that your struts will be ~50+lbs and springs ~35+lbs so look around...that or you can get stuff secondhand from some local garages...

Here http://www.tanabe-usa.com/springs/sp...tions.asp?id=3, thats the pricing/specs, mines on the top. Up here they retail for about $260.

Everything you have for around $200 will be around $250-300 here DESPITE the fact that our dollar is currently worth more.

I duno I never really heard good or bad things about them...I know that most people use Neuspeed, tein, h&r, things like that...link me to other springs that are out there for your car...BTW here are the progress..I know I said that coilovers arent all that, but for this price it cant be beat I think..tein basics start at like 800

http://progressauto.com/store/produc...roducts_id=456
