Best Full Coilover kit that won't break the bank?

I have a 99 civic SI. Looking for a full coil over kit that will let me slam the vehicle but still not have me hopping all over the place. What's good in your experience?

Racelands/rokkors suck. They do not go low.

Want to go low look into f&f type 2s,koni yellow/gc combo, Ksport maybe even meganracing.

Budget coilovers maybe function&form type 1s.

Dammit Teins are the worst if you are trying to go low lol. They are good for comfort.

I laugh my ass off when see cars like this get a flat and they cant change it, cant pull off the road cause they will high center on the shoulder, try to tow but end up crushing the front bumper and exhaust. Also when they bitch cause no shop will align them or even work on them cause they cant get a lift under it.

2x6s, ratchet strap and a low profile scissor jack...only tried it once but glad I had them just in case.

Longacre toe plates, level and a set of calipers for camber. Most probably wouldn't even attempt this though.

I have Apex N1 on my teg. I also had them on my 95 hatch. Here's a pic at the lowest setting


they are a little bouncy, but overall not too bad. The set is about a thousand bucks.
