Spring and strut combo have less problems and are more reliable but once you factor in all the parts it will most likely be more than a coilover setup unless you get something used.

down for pole position!!!

This about sums it up well. On my 09 wrx I ran BC racing coilovers for over 50k miles of hard abuse on dirt roads..commuting...track...and they were still good as new, but I dont think those results are typical. Especially for fairly cheap coilovers.

If you have zero intention of tracking your car and you do a lot of commuting I would just stick with a spring/strut combo. It will be much more reliable and a whole lot more comfortable. Your spine will thank you.
