I would wait for the strut/shock/spring package from powellraceparts.com I wonder I'd hey will have the YYZ springs soon. If you just want struts then some konis. Coil overs are a bad idea for this car unless its strictly a track car, our front fascia and Airdamn hits crap as it isD: lol

What are your goals for the car?
Do you just want to "get low" or do you want handling?
Will it be exclusively street driven or do you plan to drag, autox or track the car?

Coilovers will lower the car but everything else will suffer, including your tailbone.

Powell's option will truly be best of both worlds without an extreme drop.

you really cant get much lower then tiens springs and your probably already having a pretty rough ride with them already. and your rear is sagging probably because of those springs. shocks by themselves do not raise the car. coilovers have variable height adjustment but the cost versus performance is not even worth it. if your just looking for shocks/struts try the fe5 setup at Cobalt Struts, Shocks and Components. its cobalt parts but the shocks/struts are a direct replacement. i have contacted powell recently and was told that his yyz setup will be available in a few weeks.
