    Do it properly with decent coilovers, or eibach springs and bilstien shocks...

    Depends how you want the ride, the budget coilovers actually give an ok ride for the price, my fks feel stiff but not loads worse then standard (Though slowly feeling worse) and the eibach and bilsteins are a perfect middle from standard/stiff

    i just got some GAZ GHA Coilys for £500, ride, rebound and camber adjustment and spring rate options using new springs.

    worth a look if you have the budget.

    Either JOM coilovers from LMF (sorry, but poundland ones, seriously, has anyone seen the issues on this forum with them and used Google to find millions of others!?) or Eibach springs with Bilstein shocks. Job done.

    I know what ur saying mate but for £150 you know what to expect and if they do go wrong u just take it on the chin... Had mine for 7 months now and no problems, they look great for £150 imo

    pondland coiolovers IF ur happy to replace them when they brake.. lol

    some will last ages some wont..

    best bet is save for good ones like FK m8..

    i had poundland ones.. actually 3 sets. 2 broke due to the quality of them and the roads i drive on. third was my fault..

    FKs now and money well spent.
    The coupe...ITS ALIVE & back from the dead....again!
