    Hello all, I have pretty much researched all of the suspension options, but I am just perplexed as to which one will suite my needs I don't want to go overboard and spend money on something I am never going to use to its full potential but then again I don't want to get something that I am going to exceed its potential.

    95% of my driving will be on pavement. In the summers I frequent the beach and do some beach running. Some snow here and there in the winters and maybe a light off-road excursion once in awhile.

    I have the TSB installed on the rear so I want to level out BUT i don't like the idea of preloading my springs I like the adjustability of the coil overs, but im pretty sure I don't need resivoirs but dont know that I really need coilovers. I like the 5100s and was thinking about the toytec eibach spring to level it out some. But I don't know if I will be exceeding any type of potential. I would love to do a set of coil overs but I have heard hit or miss on the toytec coil overs.

    Basically I just want a good ride on rode since that is where most of my driving will be BUT want to have the potential to push it some. I will buy whatever I need too but I just don't want to buy something thats potential will never be used....can anyone help me sort this shit out b/c I have a headache...lol

    I will re phrase I don't like preloading factory springs that are not meant to be preloaded. I understand that the spring on a coilover is preloaded when adjusted but it is my understanding that they are made to take the pre-load.

    So the billies with the eibachs will suffice?

    Alright if you are not comfortable preloading the factory springs, then it sounds like the eibachs and billys will be your best option.
