Coilovers or Factory (1LE strut) setup?

I am trying to decide what to change my existing stock setup (Besides BMR Lowering springs) to. I am not looking to spend more then necessary as the vehicle isn't/won't be seeing any track time.

If you won't be going to the track and don't want to spend more than necessary then your stock parts are all you need . If you want an improvement then I would go with either 1LE or Bilstein's B6's - whichever's cheaper; better coil-overs will be even more $.

Shop around and look for deals! I got my 1LE shock/strut setup for $200 shipped, and they had 19k miles on them.

Did lowering your car hurt it's ability to hook?
