some sort of coilovers if you need to keep stock hieght. g/c and koni's are a common set up that work well. they will still probably lower you a little.

my friend has some neuspeed's on his probe.....he is just like you and lowers only for cruising. It takes him maybe 15 minutes to lower.

I can adjust all of my GC coilovers in about 5-10 minutes.

I was in the same situation as you. If you do get the Ground Control coilovers you will have a little drop. GC's drop you from .5-3.5 inches. .5 is very subtle. I doubt you would notice much with it.

I agree with Brendon that GC and Koni Yellows seem to be the most common setup. I, however, matched mine with KYB AGX and love the ride quality and stiffness when I need it.

If you lower your car then raise it up again you will need to realign your car everytime. I don't know if you are willing to spend the bones for that or not but it should be done everytime. If you have any other questions lemme know. :)

Check with your local alignment shops... There is a firestone around here that has a deal that you pay $129 for unlimited alignments.

Ground Control; buy the real ones, not the eBay models. Ground Control is much better quality then the knock offs sold. I have even heard bad things about the Skunk2 coilovers. I also recommend struts with your new lowering kit, KYB AGX.

keep in mind that if you get konis they will lower your car a few cm already. I noticed some tokico illuminas on ebay you might want to check them out
