Coilovers are prolly the best..and most expensive. Tokico, KYB, Blisten all make quality stuff. Just depends on how deep your pockets are and what you're gonna use them for. I'm using KYB 4 way adjustables. I like them fine,But would really love to go with coilovers.
Also,Street racing is not allowed to be discussed here.. Just a word to the wise.

I think adjustable struts are your best bet. With a set of springs. There are three major adjustable brands that people go with. From what i hear Koni is by far the best strut for the mr2. The Tokico and KYB are a close second. I have the tokico 5-way adjustables and i love them. You can definetly feel the difference in the steering and handling with the different settings. Then i have eibach pro-kit for springs which seem to make a good combination to me.

I'm also looking into doing a suspension upgrade. Anybody else have some good combinations or opinions of what work well with the MKII?

Coilovers are the obvious best choice for adjustability, but are also the most expensive route. It sounds to me like you really don't "need" coilovers, since you're not doing any serious track racing. And if you were I wouldn't suggest the coilovers, anyways to avoid being bumped up in class. But that's a different topic all together.

I have owned and raced on a few different setups, ranging from stiffer struts on stock springs, to full coilovers. In my opinion, the best bang for the buck is.......

Srtuts: Koni yellows
Springs: H&R or Eibach
then add a stiffer front sway bar.

Your 2 will handle like a dream on the track and be more than comfortable enough for bumpy downtown streets.

Good Luck!
