    I use billies b8 and h&r springs! Good setup! Or go for coilovers so you can control the level of drop?

    If you need stiffer and more controlled, DO NOT get cheap coilovers, the damping is no better than stock.

    Have you a budget in mind?

    Bilstein B8s and Eibach springs are what you want.

    The Bilstein B12 kits is one of the best options available.
