    FK coilovers are cheap, drop it 40-50mm front and back and you shouldn't have problems with the anti roll bar rubbin etc

    i have FK Coilovers fitted. For £220 they were a good buy. the ride is alright if you not going over bumps etc and they definitely are worth it.

    I got some AP cookies and the ride is amazing and they are just as stiff as the fk's but at twice the cost it's your call
