Any reasons why you were thinking that you need coils........... or should have done them right off the bat???? Maybe I will wait and save. The factory sport package is not a bad street setup really for the time being.

An H&R coil package and sway package installed + setup here is roughly $3500 CAN including 5 hours of labour. That was what I was told. That's a chunk of dough to be flopping down. If you can sell your factory sport package, then there's a bit of a recoupe, but still is pricy. I guess if you bring the package up from the USA or have a CONNECTION (!), that price also does drop again.
Springs are great for handling in the city but I wanted to improve on that, plus I wanted a lower drop as well. FYI: for coils AND sways plus install that's not bad, but shop around for your parts there's always a better deal to be found.
