First, decide what you want to do with the car. Are you wanting to upgrade the suspension for performance reasons so that you can compete in racing venues at a higher level, or are you just trying to improve looks through lowering the car? If you just care about looks, then please at least get top-rated springs that will not hurt your shocks and that will IMPROVE performance while also looking nice. Examples would include:
- Swift
- Works
- GTWorx
- Robispec

If you want to go for big performance, then get coilovers, but get ones that are already pre-configured to be badass:
- PIC street or track (pre-configured so that all you need is an alignment)
- Robispec staged package (robispec.com)
- Muellerized staged package
- AMS staged package

My entire response was in response to the Eibachs. They do not fall in any positive category for the Evo, in my opinion.

EVO 8 | 9 | X Performance Parts - LancerShop - Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution Performance Mods Shop - Swift Mach Sport EVO Lowering Springs

The springs I listed are built specifically for our shocks so that they provide performance without any negatives. They aren't too low, they are the right stiffness, and they are the right combination, so you should be good.

I was just looking into this also. Thanks you Warrtalon for the recommendations. I had looked into the spring rates of some of the lower end stuff already, without considering those springs.
