It depends on what you are planning to do. Any time you lower the car you should use adjustable endlinks to keep the swaybars in proper alignment. If you are going to lower it a lot, you'll need rear camber arms and maybe front camber plates to get the alignment back to where it needs to be.

Just dropped my car on the TEIN H-TECHs, eventhough the spring rates are close to stock, I feel that the ride is more composed now

before and after pictures here (more to come soon):

Megan lowering springs?

Anyone know anything about Megan Racing Lowering Springs? They're seem to be the cheapest compared to Eibach, CS, and RB, but I don't see any info on their spring rates, and the drop is 32mm front (1.25 inches) and 43mm rear (1.7 inches), so it's an in between Eibach and CS, almost H&R level. I'm assuming my stock struts wouldn't last as much with it on, and not knowing the spring rates is concerning. Only thing great is that they're a bit more inexpensive ($179 at Pann Auto) than the other options.

A lot of that stuff is so cheap because its sourced from China. Remember, you get what you pay for.

Megan & Hardrace are Taiwanese & under 1 umbrella. BC is Taiwanese, too. They turn out decent affordable products for many makes. Again, in most cases, we get what we pay for. @droberto sir, if you don't wanna experiment, German Eibach, Prokit & RB are great options for mild drop, H&R for a good 1.
