Tein are also good :)

Depends which ones...

Flagship models only (Flex + Monoflex), the rest are horribly underdampened...

Depends what you want out of the coilovers/shocks+springs and what your budget is, condition of the roads you generally drive on.

"Best" we could say Quantum, Ohlins, Bilstein, Toda, etc... With each corner costing minimum $1k...

If you're just driving on the streets and don't adjust much if any, then perhaps some good shocks and springs would be a better choice then some street creds to say, "I've got XXXXX coilovers". If you want to slam your car onto the pavement then yes Coilovers are the only way to go. Otherwise Coilovers, totally overrated and unnecessary unless you track and even then matched shocks + springs will out perform low - mid range coilovers ;)

I have the tein basic compact's on the yaris and TBH they are fine, yeah they arent soft, but it comes with the territory... they dont get that bounce about them like the cheap coilovers do (D2, ksport, etc)

I dunno about the Tein Basic series, never used them but have tried and driven on Superstreets, Type NA/NR + Type HA/HR... Wasn't impressed. The Flex series is better but there are other brands for around the same money or cheaper perform same if not better than the Teins. D2/Ksport lol, the Superstreets were only marginally better, still oversprung, underdampened and rocked like a boat or made the car float ie Tires not in contact for maximum traction.

@Low98rolla - You should be able to find some crazy low springs and some uprated shocks to help support it. Try checking local (King Springs) and overseas brands from America (eg. Eibach) and Europe (eg. Koni/Bilstein/SPAS/H&R).
