Well, the first question is why?
Is it worn out and you want to retain factory ride, or are you looking for a performance handling setup..?

Then, what are you gonna use it for? Spirited driving, auto-x, drag, drift?

We need more info in order to help.

not to saleblock pj but i'd go with the kybs and eibachs for right now if you shit is totally fucked. rolling on blown suspension is just asking for the rest of the car to wear out. then save for some good entry level coils.

Yeah, I'm thrilled with my KYBs and "insert brand here"?? lowering springs. At full stiff, they'll rattle your teeth and are cheaper than coils.

i had agxs and eibach pro kit (less drop and bouncy than sportlines) on my first 240 and did some auto-xing with them and they were pretty good. i liked them.

save your money and buy a nice set of coilovers if your planning on drifting. No sense in buying suspension stuff twice. If your looking to get by for now, then look around for someone selling a set of stock struts and springs. You spend maybe $50 for them maybe and get a few more years out of them.


And not to sound like a dick, but if you dont know much about cars, then how do you know your suspension is shot. Or even that your struts/springs are bad? Whats the car doing, because it may not be strut/spring related.

shocks probably went out the door and the springs are the only thing holding the car up, my guess i had the same issue with the subie before i went adj. coils. and it road like ass with the blown shocks.

i got with the above. Is it the bushing that are just shot? if so just order the poly set. i would avoid solid collar bushings, unless you want to be drift mania.
