Default Best coilovers for 5th gen sedan?

Im riding on 4cyl skunk2 lowering springs/stock shocks and I own the v6 5th gen, its a bouncy ride to say the least. So Ive been looking at coilovers. Prices range from $370 Raceland's coilovers to $980 BC coilovers. Various other brands are Function&Form type1 as well as type2, Tien, Megan Racing and Heartland. Whats the best bang for my buck?? Im leaning towards Megan's EZ street coilovers ($700) because of the dampening option. If anyone has any of or have had any of these feel free to share! I need opinions!

I had Megans on my old Nissan, and they were really stiff. I used it as a track only car, and wouldn't want to run them on the street (but I'm old).

Are you looking for looks then ride? Are you looking to slam the car, or just lower it a bit for looks?

I want to slam it as well as a stiff ride. The stiffer the ride the least likely Ill scrape on the tiniest dip in the road.

Sorry for the late reply...

Slamming a 5th gen comes with problems Take a look at this picture



My car is about as low as you want to go. Any lower and you will be snapping CV joints. I run 800lb ft springs, 1000lb rear springs with Koni yellows revalved for those springs and GC coilover sleeves. Keep in mind, I am turning hard right in this picture (about 1.2 G's), so the left side is a bit lower than when at rest. From your description it sounds like this is higher than you want to be. Correct?
