Personally I would replace all my lights with black housings, change the grille to something non-stock, maybe add a bumper lip, etc. before coilovers. Especially since coilovers cost a LOT and those things don't.

I would, that's the only was to get a PROPER stance outta these things. If you really want to go the spring route, then Racinglines is the way to go.
