Question ECS suspension any good?

HI, I just bought a 97' 328is, and it needs new front struts. Has anyone tried the Street-Line E36 3-Series Coil Over Kit from ECS? It looks like a good deal, but I'm new to BMW's, and dont want a poor ride quality, so am looking for some feedback before I buy. I need something as inexpensive as possible, and for regular street use. It seems like bilsteins are the way to go, but I'm looking for other options. thanks

Also if you've seen any deals let me know where to find them.

I've never heard of them. Post a link or two for where you are looking.

Usually coil overs are going to be the roughest option that you have as a choice. Since that is a consideration you may want to look at other options.

suspension link

Hi, thanks for the reply.

Here is a link if you want to check them out. I will probobly go with the bilsteins, as I hear they are good. Does anyone know if the HD bilsteins are compatible with the factory sachs springs, or should I get the sport struts?
I have the factory sachs sport suspension now, but they are completely shot.

Also, is their a tutorial on changing suspension posted on here?

thanks

Ah the FK. I have heard a bit about those. But for the money I would pay more for a set of the PSS9. I had a thread up with pictures of how to do everything but I believe it was misplaced during a site move. All you need is a good metric tool set and a spring compressor. If you have ever changed the suspension on a car you can do this. The rears will allow a blind retarded five year old to change it.
