would this be ok to get?

Bilstein PSS 9 Coilover System / Koni FSD Shocks / Eibach Pro-Kit Springs

Anything wrong with this combination? Thanks for your info..

I have just been reading the suspension guide in the FAQs.. but still can't decide..

you would not be able to combine all three of those.

there's two options from what you listed above:

1) coilovers: bilstein pss9

2) spring and shock combo: eibach pro kit and koni fsd

Just to clarify, the PSS9 system is a full shock and spring replacement that is height and dampening adjustable so it is a complete kit.

The Koni FSD/Eibach Pro Kit combo is also a full shock and spring replacement but is not adjustable, hence the price difference between the two.

Do you know how long it is to install the PSS9 system? I saw on another post that it probably take about 4 hours??

Yup. That's the typical type for coilovers/springs & shocks.

Thanks! I was hoping to do mods that don't usually take a day or more.. (too bad about the downpipes before I ordered them).. but the others shouldn't take more than a day to do each item..

Or you can collect your mods, take an entire day off and do it all at once Although, you won't appreciate each mod for what it's individually worth.

It takes a competent shop about 2.5 - 3 hrs of labor to install. Let me know if you need some recommendations if you are in the LA area.
Had a cancellation so got the coil over in-stock.

The PSS10 is coming out very soon, I would wait for that. And maybe sway bars while you are at it. See:
