Could always save up, and get your own place, that way you can go do your activities without worry, then you know, onto other things

if you buy springs ill point and laugh at you...

Until I am out of breath.





Coilovers>springs

And Stance GR+pros for the GD chassis are 12kg/12kg with camber plates in the front and rear. They are also inverted strut in the front
that's calling "balling"

springs are fun but not as fun as coilovers, i would say get the car tuned, kwin is selling those tein super street coilovers for pretty cheap, maybe go for those after you sell your imac and what not. or you can buy my coilovers so i can buy new ones

i think he is talking about my obsession of looking at interweb pron and yes saving money for xmas is good as well....

COILOVERS!

Save up for them.

Don't waste your money on springs. Do it right the first time!

if your going to be driving your car as a dd then you might not want coilovers, springs will be fine, coilovers are not as comfortable as a ride. (my car rattles) but they are holy crap fun, i was planning on taking my car to a few track days and i still do, if you dont then i would just go with springs and eventually some new struts its all up to you, i went with springs first as well. so maybe you can get springs first and save for coilovers so your car doesnt ride like a monster truck anymore its up to you

ill tell you one thing tho, if you get a tune you cant get it changed once a week.

Also if you get springs im not going to help you take them off to put different ones on every week either

just a thought

You could buy coilovers, and basically lose lots of money, or you can buy springs and not lose more than $300. I dont understand why everybody is saying to buy coilovers. If you are daily driving your car, then coilovers might not be the thing to buy, like bhamblin mentioned. I put a bunch of miles on my STI. I thought about coilovers as they would be sweet and a great performance mod. But you have to maintain them, and, from time to time rebuild them. For how many miles i put on my car it would basically be a $1K loss as any money i got for them would not be much at all. I dont think i will be getting coilovers unless i get a DD car. Dont put money into your car that you cannot afford, as you usually dont get much in return. I dont know your application of your car, but unless you are auto-Xing it or taking it to the track, i dont understand why you would get coilovers.
