    Rear shock, which to get?

    I'm looking to replaced a bunch of stuff in the rear so I figured why not the shocks since ill be back there... but i know little about them. i have and want to retain stock ride height, and i love a spirited take off but i dont go to the track, so i dont want a stright line special if any are made for that purpose.

    i see tokiko for 49.99, tokico illumina for 99.99 (adjustable), bilstein heavy duty for 84.99 or hal adjustables, but there are shitload so im gunna ignore them unless someone suggests them for any particular reason.

    also, is there an "upgraded" spring of any sort that i shoudl look for or are the stockers good? all the ones i see are to lower the car which i dont want so stock height, but ive seen afco coil over springs for 61.99 that list as " 14in. Coil-Over 150lb Rate (2 5/8in. I.D.)" not sure how tahts different from stock.

    thanks all!
