Are they just drop springs? I personally would stay away from any sleeves except GC. I'd be leery of DropZone springs and shocks but I've heard people say they are ok.

Yes, Neuspeed are good. Tokico Blues work, but they are basically stock replacements. Less aggressive valving and don't have longer travel which makes them more susceptible to blowing. They do work ok though, you just may have to replace them more often.

Just go with something simple and stick with what these fellows said and go with the GC Coilcovers. Honestly best in my opinion.
