Cheaper option than coilovers?

Looking to finally upgrade my suspention as it looks like I'll be keeping my car. I don't really want to go with coilovers due to now expensive they are but I want something a little more reliable than just race springs. Should I go with a cup kit? I'm looking to spend around 500-700

You can easily find used KW V1's advertised here regularly for that price, I paid $700 for my V1's from a member and they worked out great, they are built for the life of you car

The Koni's are a nice setup as well, lots of ways you can go with the cake you have available

Used V1s are a nice option. Id get V2s since you cant adjust the 'feel' of the coilovers with the V1s (damping)

Yep, used ST's or KW's are your best option. You may also want to consider H&R Touring Cup Kit as they meet your budget.
