another rsx in town eh.

save up and get a full coilover system.

dont waste your money on springs or sleeve coils. Its worth it in the end..

just like DC said just go for the full deal...specially on this car. By trying to go cheap you are actually going to end up spending more. Your stock shocks will be blown before you even get a full feel for the suspension since the roads around here aren't so forgiving. Then you end up wasting time because you have to do this twice instead of having gone through the full setup once. Tein does offer a basic coilover setup for around $500-700.00. If you absolutely cannot get these because of low funds then you definately should just wait or steer away completely from doing suspension upgrades.
going cheap is definitely not the answer to lowering your car....do it right once so you don't waste your money.

Same here, I had tein Stechs on mine too. They'll eventually blow-- not to bad for a couple years though if your struts arent in bad shape. Damper system or Full Coils are a good balance.

For sure, I had CRSX lowering on my rsx and they were alright for a while but it is so much better to save and get coils.
