I need to replace my suspension on my car with a budget around $500, lowering the car no more than 2". I would like to replace it ASAP. Do you have any recommendations for this fix or does anybody have suspension kits for sale for my baby?

Re: im sure many times repeated.. SUSPENSION RECOMMENDATIONS (zobiewan)

and for the zillionth time of everyone on here saying it.....
I DONT CARE HOW MUCH YOUR BUDGET IS DO IT RIGHT THE FIRST TIME OR YOU WILL BE KICKING YOUR ASS
now that thats out of the way....suspension is a bit pricey so maybe $500 might need to wait while and grow but definetly if its just for looks toss a cupkit on there.
if you want performance though you are gonna have to shell out for the coilovers but yuo wont be dissappointed. capiche???

I agree with n00b. Get exactly what you want the first time around, or you WILL kick yourself in the end. I know I did!

But if not, I've heard good things about both the Weitec and FK kits. They're usually sold for around $500 or so.

how about saving up for your favourite, shine + rubber bushings?

something like that is great
I'm personaly running Bilstien sports and autotech springs (I think it was like 588)
but also replace any worn out suspention parts at the same time or you will kick yourself later
note: these are preformance suspentions, not look suspention
there is a difference
your a arms will be paralell to the ground, the drop will be no more than 2"
but you will have a nice handling car
expecialy if you stick some 16"s on there and get some nice sway bars
