I've been reading the posts about coilovers. I think it's gonna be one of my next mods over the winter. I've heard good things about GC's coilover spring kit, and now i've heard about DSS's coilover kit.

I have a few questions about the various kits out there. Is the DSS kit for $400 (or maybe $500)just the coilover spring kit?? Do we need to buy shocks separately? I would think so, since the GC's are $400 as well. What makes the DSS coilover kit better than the GC's? What makes one coilover better than another, for that matter?

I've seen coilover kits selling for as low as $149 in some of the rice ads in Super Street. Why are they so low??

I don't plan on doing much auto-x'ing. My main concern is 1/4 mi. drag racing and i'm mostly concerned about adjustable shocks for minimal weight transer during launch. Would I be better off with just a set of Eibach Pro-Kit springs, or would coilovers just be overkill??

Any input would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Mike
