I'm in a similar boat General-Leo, and I decided to go with some RCE blacks, the 'regular guys springs', since I understand it's okay to use them with the stock struts, and they don't drop the car very much.
I just ordered them, so can't tell you how they are, and looks like it'll be a few weeks before I get them and have the time to put them on, but from what I heard, they're pretty good for a year round daily driver, which is what I was looking for.
I chatted with the folks at Turninconcepts
about what I was looking to do and they were really helpful, and pointed me towards the RCE blacks too.
May be that I'll eventually need or want better dampers to go with them, but since they're supposed to be okay with the stock ones, figuring I'll be able to wait for a little while at least before doing so, time & money and all that -
