Are you just wanting general performance or do you want to gear towards a particular goal?

I would recommend something adjustable. Not that much more and worth it. Most recommend kyb adjustables, i'm running strange adjustables and for the money I enjoy them. I'm focused a little more towards drag but can stiffen them up enough to eliminate body roll.

If your going to put struts and shocks on, hold off until you get enough money to also put on some new springs. The more is holds the corners, the more it will beat you to death on a local country road.

Get the MM maximum grip box. $4k but its cheaper than doing it piecemeal and it'll rock your socks as far as handling.
