What do you think of these? Are they worth it. Im a little low in the budget range. Would there be anything else i would need to get with these? Would i just use the stock shocks? Don't know much about suspension. Please let me know
coilovers

IMO, aerospeed's are just like the skunk2's: ghetto and reserved for ricers. I know they seem like a cheap alternative to coil-overs, and that's they claim to be, but for the money, you'd be better off getting a set of H&R or Eibach springs, or something along those lines. But again, this is all just my opinion on the matter.

Yeah. Like I said, H&R and Eibach both make very nice springs. I'm getting a set of H&R sport springs for my car for Christmas. There only like $189, and ones for an Mk3 are around $170. Virtual world parts Check this site out, it'll help with prices and Ideas.

Something else your going to need to consider are shocks/struts. I don't know how many miles your current ones have on em, if you go with lowering springs they are going to need to be replaced pretty quickly, if not at the same time, after you install your springs. With struts, Bilstein seems to be the popular choice, and come highly recommended. Hope this helps.

I got Neuspeed Springs. Enjoying them so far. My next springs will be H&R coilovers or another set of lowering springs and bushings from Eibach.
