I have something for you if you're not in a huge hurry because they are still on the car.  Through group buys years ago I have a set of sleeve overs and Cusco front camber plates on KYB G2's on my 87.  The ride is way better than stock for sure and the sleeve overs don't clunk because of the secret muffler pipe sleeve treatment.  So you'd get:  2 front KYB inserts, 2 Cusco front camber plates, muffler pipe inserts, two sleeve overs for the front and the two rear KYB's with the sleeve overs/muffler pipe inserts already installed.  Drove this to at least two Branson meets when I lived in TX, won the "Best Driving Starquest" award at one of them.

I know I have well over $1000 into this setup and had to wait over a year to get the Cusco camber plates from Japan (thanks to whichever member ran that group buy) but of course there must be 10K miles on the parts by now.  I'm reasonable so just PM me if you're interested.  I can snap a few pics of the parts installed.

The mookee springs look like the ST springs Im riding on for about half the original cost or less. But you'll need camber plates in front for sure cause the lowering springs throw that off.
And of course the ride is a bit stiff. Road bumps jar you a little.

Scott's setup sounds great!

And there's a guy on here selling coilovers. Boostlee1985.
I got blisters on my fingers!!!

You'll have some rubbing of the inner fender liner and fender lip with ST springs...

Do the plates add some lift?  I was thinking of trying camber plates in the front, or spring isolators to give me back .5-.75" back
