what brand coilovers do you have? Also what shocks are you running? But when you are that low its going to be a little bouncy no matter what you do.

Extended top hats may help a little, however remember that if shocks are not designed with a small body and/or are not designed for slammed suspensions then they will have some problems including that bouncing. That's why many, when going for the slammed look opt for coilovers that can go really low.

Your choice of strut + coil springs is of very poor quality. Those eBay springs are plain rubbish, every vehicle I've been in that had eBay springs was bouncy and rode awful. I wouldn't be surprised at all if all 4 springs had different rates, just from poor manufacturer quality control. Those eBay "coilovers" are really just cheap adjustable lowering springs.

And Stagg shocks, I've heard good and bad about them, their company website is very sketchy. A cheap shock is a cheap shock though.

If you want to lower your car for cheap, without having the bounciness of eBay springs, then I say get yourself a good set of lowering springs and see what happens then. Eibach, Tokico, Tein, Skunk2.

If you want to lower your car, and make it handle better at the same time, get yourself a package set of coilovers + struts. Tein, Skunk2, and Ksports all make great coilover sets.
