Don't do just springs.

I'd be very hesitant to get coilovers on our streets. If this is a daily driver and won't be substantially tracked, I'd look hard at a spring/shock combo rather than coils. you'll get a much better stance and improved handling, braking and balance, but with more comfort.

Those freeze joints on 93 north of the city, or the delaminated top coat on route 1 with coilovers would be a disaster.

you'll save a few hundo too.

$0.02.
