Default Found some Neuspeed springs in the junkyard...

Don't laugh, I do want the F&F coilovers, but $600 is a 1/3 of what the car is worth. They all seem like they are in good shape, I think I can get them for close to $50 for the set, pick up some aftermarket shocks and I can have a set up for like $250. What do you think? Not going for a slammed look or to be a supercross champion. I just want a smallish drop and better handling. My shocks/springs have 250k on them from the original car. Im sure I could put a ford pinto set up on it and it would ride better...

Even if you went "new OE" set up you would feel the difference, if your current set up is the original. So going with the springs and new struts, you should be fine.

You are doing front and rear...correct?

UPDATE:
Went today. Didn't get the springs. This junkard is a trip though. They charge you $3 to get in. I had a my bag full of tools and I forgot I had a few random accord parts on the bottom. I went to check out and they searched my bag, saw the parts and accused me of stealing. Tlold me I had to pay for my own parts or they would call the police. Lol what a trip. If anyone is around the Jacksonville, FL area don't goto Ace Pick A Part

So, shocks and struts will help give a better stance but not slammed? That's what I'm looking to do on my 91 lx 2dr.
