Coilover recommendations

I am adding a Procharger to my car and currently have my car lowered. I want to switch to coilovers and will probably drag the car a few times per year. Any recommendations on setups???

RideTech is by far and away your best choice. Nothing else will come close. We can sell most any brand, but for ride quality on coilovers, RT is it.

My BC ER's have been nothing less than amazing, road or track. And the price is quite good when you shop around.
