There are many people from different walks of life on this forum. Cheap for some is $5000, and cheap for others may be $500.

Wouldn't "cheap out" on coilovers. Do your research, find what works for you for your budget. Handling is one of the fundamental cornerstones of our cars. Don't be a willy, play smart.

BC Coilovers. They're very highly regarded for the price, $1100 shipped for the properly adjustable one.

Okay, at that price point coilovers doesn't sound up your alley. Investigate some lowering springs. If you really want to skimp on money and don't give a rats about your handling, you should look at compressing your springs
