I currently have factory shocks with H&R lowerings springs/MM Spacers, I would like to change my shocks to improve ride quality, as well the H&R springs are too low now when on my 20" wheels, so I would like to go with a full coil over setup to set the lowest possible without rubbing the fenders, which is the best kit out there? Thanks

If your goal is to inprove ride quality and performance, you should probably start by getting rid of the 20" wheels. Then it's merely a matter of choosing between KW Variant 3's ($2600 MSRP) and something more race worthy (e.g. LG Motorsports Penske coilover setup).

I have the 18's as well still, I drag race on the 18's and street drive on the 20's, not necessarily needing a race setup but something to improve and replace old shocks that aren't working as they should anymore and the H&R springs have settled too much(4yrs/100,000km), they were fine for clearance originally. Thanks for the feedback

I would say you keep your 20's and find a set of coil overs. If getting a race type setup is not for you, i would suggest maybe the d2 setup which i remember a member drive with here for years with his 19/20's. Or maybe the kw's for more money.
