I did koni's and eibachs and was pleased with them on the street and occasional track day. Its been a while but I think I used a 15mm spring pad on the rear (thicker than oem) to get the rear up a bit to my liking.

Thanks for the pic and info. Your car sits real good. Can you provide any feedback on ride quality vs stock

Im going with koni top adjustable rear and front shocks, and dinan springs, small drop. Should be comfortable and a bit improvement in handling. Also,what kind of roads you got around you, IF its smooth you could go with a low drop, H&R springs maybe. Good luck with your choice.

Rebuild is $225 per shock:

Insufficient travel. Camber plates like GC fix it IIRC.
