    if you're not going to all-out handling performance, I'd go with sprint springs. they've been proven to very reliable, and the drop looks great on our cars.

    2 inch drop: http://www.cardomain.com/item/SPR8500?vq_id=none

    2.5 inch drop: http://www.cardomain.com/item/SPRX8500?vq_id=none

    I've ridden in cars with stock struts and the sprint 2.0 and 2.5s, and there isn't a huge difference in ride quality between stock. I'd imagine it would be even better if you got a higher quality strut.

      everyone will agree, those types of coilovers suck. The ride is horrible and the performance prolly isn't much better. But if all you care about is the looks, then maybe those are right for you. There is a set of true coilvers being made. But they are much more pricey than the sleeve style garbage. Check the first post in this section for more information

        By the coil overs they're pretty and they make the car pretty and uber functional.
        Fixing a Saturn can be like reaching into a bag of scorpions and hoping for the tootsie roll.

        AMR coilovers w/pillowball mounts, AMR FTB, AMR RST, Quaife, ACT clutch, HR con rods with JPC max bore pistons, Thermal exhaust, Hotshot header, AEM CAI, and I just want to run around tearing my cloths off, screaming beligerently, and spitting, and twitching, and foaming; because its finally done.

                  Haha, no kidding and as bad as watching somebody heat a spring with a torch, while on the car until the desired, lower height is reached.
