    are you looking for springs...springs and dampers...or coilover kits?
    there are lots of kits available at all price points...what is your budget and are you after looks or performance?...how much ride quality do you want to keep?
    what i've felt,what i've known
    never shined through in what i've shown.

    weitec or eibach coilovers would be my suggestion then.
    coupled with a full poly bush set and uprated anti roll bars
    whossname to a blanket springs to mind
