honestly i would look into buying a nice set of shocks and eibach or h+r springs instead of coilovers. Even though the adjustability factor of coilovers is a plus... they make noises going over bumps and situations where load is removed from the shocks. This happens because the spring on a coilover sits in the groove on the cups holding the spring in place. When a small curb or speed bump is driven over the spring may bounce free of the cup a little bit and slam back into it when the weight of the car comes back down. This eventually starts to wear away at the cups and ends of the springs. Unless you really want to be able to experiment with the ride height i would stay away from coilovers.

In an only moderately related note, I just got my coil-overs on today and I love it! I am using the Omni Power adjustable set (http://www.inlinefour.com/ompoaddaco.html). The ride is pretty harsh, but since this is just an AutoX car primarily, i think it'll be ok. Took it up into the hills to test the difference (obeying all traffic laws of course) and it is an awesome improvement. Previously, I had some generic springs on there and shocks that aren't really worth mentioning, so it is not a big surprise that these are better.

I'm buying a set of Ksport 36 way adjustable damping coilovers. I'm using it for drag racing and daily driving. If I wasn't setting it up for the track I'd go with a good set of adjustable struts on some nice springs.

I have a set of maxspeed coilovers on my crx and this rarely happens and i live in a city with very uneven roads lol. it really depends on how you adjust them and how uneven the car sits. they popped once when the driver side was much lower than the passenger side then evened out very quickly. Or if you have them lowered all the way juse a jack to lift if then drop it quickly.
