Well if you want springs for now then get the COBB sport springs.
As for coilovers id go with the Tein Flex's then you can get the EDFC if you wanted it.*
The Cusco zero2 coilovers are nice and i think you can put ECON on those.

Ill go get them for you but you better shoot me a few extra bucks for petrol.

BC has rear dampening extensions as well so u dont have to pull the back seat to adjust them, they come free with the new BC racings for the STi so its all tough choices but I think Im sold on the Cusco's

If you get the inverted coilover set up like my monoflex or lances bc you dont have to take the seats out. the dampening is underneath. trust me you wont find yourself playing with the dampening much at all.

It depends on what you are doing with your car. Springs are good and give you a sporty feel. Coilovers are stiff and really good for track use but not so fun on bumpy streets. I have the Megan street series and they are great for the money and I have the extenders so I don't' have to pull out the back seat. I wished I would have saved and got the BC racing, they make Megan's for them so they are close but there are some differences (BC says). I had Tien springs for a while and they were fine, they looked good and drove alright but I wanted better corning for the track, it was the only way my rs would keep up.

Yea I liked the prodrives on my rs always wanted to upgrade to tien flex's but I knew one day Id trade it in on an STi so I didnt do it. I'll see how much I like the cobbs on it and prolly leave it like that a few months and If I want stiffer Ill prolly go with BC or Cusco.

Are you doing any actual racing? If so I can see the need for coilovers, but if not think about where the extra money could go. The street isn't a racetrack so you really don't need coils. Maybe I'm wrong here but I would rather put that money on dampers and springs. Also think about having to rebuild the coilovers, that will cost money and time.

You can't get the proper sit-down without the height adjustability of coilovers. What would the Ladies think if you aren't tuckin' tire...
