There is no best as it depends on why you want new springs. If it just for looks and/or minor handling improvement Eibach Pro-kit are good and don't effect the ride comfort much. They also go well with Koni FSD's if you are worried about ride comfort. If you want serious lowering and/or much better handling then you are probably better off with coilovers.

Some people are like a Slinky ........ not really good for anything, but you still can't help
but smile when you shove them down the stairs
