    Find some FE4's out of V1. People are always upgrading, and selling their stockers for relatively cheap. If you can grab the Vee springs and sway bars at the same time, do it.

    I have my stock FE5's I just took off. They are from the luxury sport or performance or whatever the hell package lol. Came with the 18's and all. Anyways, I was going to keep them but I think I will sell them, so if you can't find the V set up its an option. Way better that the FE'2's. Mine have the rear self leveling!

    KYB Gas-A-Just for $100/ea or find someone ditching their FE1/2/3's for pennies on the dollar.

    I wouldnt jump to FE4's unless you were doing front and rear at the same time.
