Don't buy springs, save your money for coilovers. Worth the investment long term. If you had to choose a good set of springs, go with Swift Springs.

i'm pretty sure it's only 1 S. (staring at my Hotchkis box right now)

anyway V8killa, first i would say search and find the springs that you think would be best suited for ya. most are available under $300. true, coilovers are THE way to go as far as suspension mods, but you're not going to find any (maybe used) for your budget.

i installed Hotchkis springs on my evo VIII 2 weeks ago and i love em. very similar ride characteristics to stock, with a nice, wheel-gap closing drop. i plan on using them throughout the winter, possibly upgrading to coilovers next spring. i posted a review of mine HERE.

good luck

I've ridden in a few evo's with different springs setups. To me, the swift, hotchkis, and tein all rode very similiarly. To me, i didn't feel any of them were worth the money from a performance standpoint. Only appeal was the loweredvehicle stance.
I actually swtched over to coilovers in the Springtime and will say I will never go back. Ride quality with them is far superior to springs.
