Default newb question? Which springs??

I've done some searching. Cobb springs where my first choice until I discovered they arent made for 02-03! Then I thought Perrin, Progress, etc.

What are you guys running and what do you like/dislike about them??

Not looking to spend that kind of money. I plan on sway bars and endlinks as well as springs.

I have Hotchkis springs and I love them. I got them brand new for pretty cheap at Rallysportdirect and the ride hide looks really good. Other than that I would recommend prodrive springs. Both I believe were made to work with the stock struts.

I run progress and KYB struts,, I have no complaints other than the teal and orange combo (yay Miami Dolphins) and with the new 17's and 235-45's its a real comfortable ride that can hold a corner.. I'm guessin there all pretty much the same, I feel more comfortable going with a company that only deals with suspension products ya know what I mean mang...

How much did you pay for your KYB's? This will probably be my next mod but they seem a little expensive and make me wonder if I should just bite the bullet and get coilovers (even though it might be a while before I can afford them)
