i installed TEIN type flex coilovers.
i love 'em.
think i would have been satisfied with springs and adjustable dampers though.
big price difference.
i have some TEIN pillow ball upper mounts (for use with springs not coil overs)

that i would be willing to part with if you decide to go that route...

i was going to do springs, but found my dampers were shot, so went with coil overs instead.
bought these to go with my TEIN type-S springs... never returned them when in Japan.
traded the springs for my coil overs.

had 3 cars now, each bought with lowering springs and performance shocks. second time no that i've shelled out £700+ on coilovers. don't regret a penny of it :D you can't beat them, and with the sheer amount of bushes and the double wishbone setup in the altezza the ride stays soft as anything anyway.

The Two ways to lower a car that uses coil springs in its suspension, First is a install stiffer and lower springs, and another is install a coilover suspension. To install lowering springs, the stock springs are simply removed and replaced by the lower springs.

HKS coilovers set up fairly soft with a good drop are as comfortable as standard. Teins are a good bit cheaper and damok appears to be their ambassador so they cant be too bad

Sorry MooMoo, didnt mean to sound like they were the best thing ever. .

I only suggest Tein because for the quality and the price you cant go to far wrong :?
and i'm Just speaking from the experience i have had with my Teins. I'm sure HKS coilovers are alot better in your eyes but not many people could spend the money they cost when you look at the gains you cant go wrong Tein im my eyes . . Just my 2cents Buddy :wink: :wink:
