Ah, so you finally made up your mind.

How about Tokico HPs or maybe KYB AGX or Tokico D-Spec adjustables.

The adjustable ones are probably better for performance.

The KYB AGX are less adjustable; 4 in front 8 in rear.
Tokico d-specs are 16 all the way around.

They say 16, but it's actually infinite. The D-Specs are the better pick.

The Cobb springs on the other hand, maybe not so great a pick. I know a lot of folks gripe that the Cobb springs lower the car too much. The ride may not be great regardless of strut used if you don't have any bump travel left to work with.

I did a little research on the KYB AGX. I'll have to look into the Tokico ones. I really like the COBB products so one reason I went with them. I figure run them for the summer and if I don't like them I'll swap them out. Just want to make sure I have some good struts cause would rather not have to swap them too.
