There is best for anything especially in car tuning, perhaps a better question to start with. What are you trying to establish and what are you using the car for? Good to me may not necessarily mean good to everyone, vice-versa.

FYI - Buddyclub is not exactly designed primarily for street use. And the Tein spring rates are quite hard as well.

H&R/Tein Basic damper for daily driving .. ~ tein basic is a bit harder .. ~ so might better for aggressive drivers
where Buddy club/tein SS for ppl who will go to track once awhile or like once a mouth
and Tein Flex + EDFC for ppl got the big buck and go for exterm performance wise
btw .. there is no pnt to get Tein Flex if u dont get EDFC .. it's basically the same thing as Tein SS .... where EDFC doesn't work on SS
so .... ~ kno how u gonna drive the car and u will find urself a best coilover ~

Previously owned Eibach Prokit Spring then switched to Tanabe Sustec Pro S-OC Type II Coilover. Softer than Prokit. Very Soft & Comfortable Ride Quality. Definitely Not for Track, Great For Daily use IMO. As you know it is only Height adjustable.
The price isn't tempting thou...
You can get Teins Basic with cheaper price I guess.

I checked these out on the manufacturer's website; look pretty nice. Very reasonable spring rates; 8K F 4K R (which in lb/in = 450 F 225 R). Retail is $850. I have not seen this listed for sale anywhere yet.

Did they come with upper mounts or did you use the stock mounts?

Are you saying that the Tanabe coilovers are so soft that it didn't give you much of an improvement in handling? Did they at least feel stiffer than the stock suspension? Less body roll than stock?

I'm no expert. This just my personal feeling. It only stiffer a little bit then Stock. It still doing a fine job of reduce body roll.
