Default Need advice on suspension upgrades

I've been planning on upgrading, and now since my front right shock is going out and making noise now is the time. My original plan was to do bilstein HD's all around with H&R springs(which i hear good things about), but i was wondering if lower end coilovers would be just as good if not better(ISC, CXRacing, etc...). I would like coilovers because of their adjustability, but i know some will not perform as well or last as long.

Please only give advice if you have specific experience with lower end coilovers or the bilstein HD's.

The thing I want the most is reliability and performance, thanks!

Look into the ground control kit with koni yellows. I've got that on my car and they work great.

Crapatalk, it sucks for free!

Where did you get your koni's from, most sets I see are around 600 and then another 400 for the ground control kit. Trying to stay around $800.

I got mine in a group buy on here. I think it was 8-900 bucks. I can't recall though. It's a good kit and you can swap the GC kit to other konis if you want to change it up. I'm not sure if GC is still doing the cutting of the spring perch though. You might contact them directly and ask if they've got any deals.
