Well I've spent hours looking into this and have decided unless you can afford real coilovers which are very very expensive you should avoid them and go for a well set up spring and shock combo.
The majority of coilovers on the Market are just cheaper versions that come with one year warranty and can blow after a short time. A quick net search reveals this to be true.
Also, as coilovers are adjustable, this only comes into it's own for varying tracks if racing, pointless and overkill on the road.
Also, when adjusting, it should be done properly, i.e corner weighted, not just a visual check that it sits e evenly.
With what I've found I'll be spending my money on a decent spring shock combo designed for the car, not a coilover kit even though they seem to be very fashionable at the moment.
