Go with the OME set up, coils and shocks. And then I'de do an AAL and OME shocks in the back. Just my 2c.

Or you could do the Bilsteins all the way around, and get the OME coil...

I just got done putting in my coilovers, I had a spacer before and it sucked!! My coilovers are soo nice, love the ride!

just replace the stock shocks then and add the coil spacer OR say fuck it, spend a 1000 on coilovers.

Having had both, IMO the ($1000+) coilovers are over rated. I had all sorts of problems with them and the ride was terrible. I returned them and went with ($100) 3" spacers, combined with stock coilovers they work fine for me. Could have been a one-time-coicidence, but thought I'd add my experience...
