The springs fit over the shocks. You are best off upgrading the springs and shocks in one go. If you do one and then the other you will be doing the same job twice. The nice thing is you only need the spring compressor to take apart your old shock/spring combo. You can run the ground control coil overs all the way down with the koni yellows and not have to use the spring compressor to put the top perch on. It makes more sense when you do it. I just installed a set on my car and boy does it make a HUGE difference. I got 450# springs front and 500# springs rear. You may want stiffer springs, I don't know. I got the set for $800 at redshiftmotorsports. The konis were back ordered so it took about a month to get them in.

I am also upgrading my brake lines to stainless steel and my pads to hawk racing. This should upgrade my braking quite a bit. Right now I have really crapy super fading worse than OEM pads. My brake lines are also about ready to blow. The stock rotors are just fine and in many ways better than aftermarket rotors.

I hear many people like to add beefy rear sway bars so the cars tend to oversteer. Sounds good for AutoX where there are many tight corners but I drive my car in the curvy hills and I don't want it to oversteer. I am sticking with the stock rear sway bar. I added a cheap-o ebay rear strut brace and it helped out.

If you think your car feels like it is on rails just wait until you add the suspension components.

hmm well the car will bounce more with stiffer springs. how much i do not know. if you really want to find out go for it. it won't ruin anything, just make it a pain in the ass to drive.
