REALLY??? NO way!

To sum up all the other threads on this:

If you want comfort + performance - a little lowering = Eibach springs with Koni shocks/struts.

If you want performance + lowering - comfort = H&R springs with Bilstein shocks/struts

If you have money, just do coil overs.

No matter what you decide, get an alignment after you're done and you might as well replace all the bushings while you're in there.

Don't slam it, it will do quite a number on your front drive train.

Wheels are up to you, don't go staggered as it will give you more understeer.

Good luck.
