As the title suggests I am looking for recommendations on suspension kits. The previous owner of my s16 (a 1999 one with 16 inch wheels) made the mistake to put some FK automotive coilovers which pretty much made the car a rock and it behaves very poorly on the road, not to mention that the front end sits very low (as you can hopefully see from the picture).
Other than the obvious choice to get the stock ones, has anyone any recommendations?
Bilstein B8 shortened shocks
50mm Eibach springs.
GTI 180 rear axle rebuilt and lowered to around 40mm
GTI 180 front ARB
Polybushes pretty much on everything.
Love it on the road tho again it can be a bit hard, run a few times up Prescott hill climb and been around a couple of tracks and it was spot on. Kept very very level though corners, which is a comment I get off lots of passengers.

Thanks for the overview of your set up Pez.
Well, I was thinking to go for stock or some Koni STR.T (which I've never had the opportunity to test out). I don't want to explode the bank again
Good friend of mine which was a Peugeot Sport mechanic, insists on the stock one if I want a good all around balance between daily driving and bit track fun.
Also, currently I am located in Bucharest due to work and their roads here are not fun to drive around with a lowered car... I am still wondering how I haven't broke anything yet.
