I've heard of the MM kit, not that other brand. I would personally go with the more expensive Koni if I was going with that exact one. Are you looking for just looks or handling?

Haha coilovers are expensive by themselves. I would double check with MM about which Konis to use, I don't see there being a difference but you never know. If there isn't a difference then I see no reason to buy the expensive ones if you're just going for looks.

If you're looking to just slam the car and have no intentions of tracking the car, get Racelands. Be warned though, replacements will probably be in order after a few years.

I just found out that the racelands will not work with caster camber plates so how would I get my car aligned if I had it lowered 2.5 in?

You buy the MM coilovers and do it right.

Understandable. But it isn't exactly the best idea to go cheap on a vital component like suspension. I've got a buddy with a cheap set of coilovers on his Integra and every time he brings his car into the shop we have to tighten up the locking plate on them because it loosened itself up. Whereas my buddy with a $1500 kit on his Evo hasn't had any of those problems at all.

If I went coilovers up front with the mm coilovers what all do I need just for the front? What struts I don't have a lot of money and I just want to go low I don't drag or autocross keep in mind.

STR.Ts are just Koni yellow sport struts set to 0° stiffness with no adjustability.
STR.Ts are awesome for a non-track use or infrequently tracked car.
Dad has them on his 07 with Steeda Ultralites. It rides as smooth as butter.

Coilovers are a strut and spring in one, are they not? I don't think you need both

If you just want to lower it get a set of springs/shocks and call it a day, you don't need coilovers. I mean the MM stuff is the best short of a SLA setup but there are other options for coilovers too that don't cost as much like UPR if you don't care about handling although it WILL handle better than stock.
