I think they are pretty old. I am the 3rd owner and i do not see any records of the previous owner changing shocks. Should I buy stock shocks or do you have any recommendations? I am cheap!!!

Get coil's, springs would just give you a bouncy ride. If you have a lady in there, you don't want her head to be hitting the roof when hitting bumps or ramps on the freeway.

What would you suggest for Coilovers?

coilovers are not much better..they still have a really harsh ride....but the beauty of them is that u can adjust how soft are hard u want the ride to be..u can do this with adjustable shocks also....unless ur willing to shell out over 1500 for a set of coilovers....the avg driver will benefit more from just a basic spring/adj shock combo and u'll save urself alot more money too.....

I agree, since you said you were cheap, i am assuming you dont want to spend $1200 (the cheapest coilovers i have seen). I would get some mildly adjustable struts to put on in conjunction with your springs. This will save you time, like MRQturbo said. Drive it for a while and make your adjustments accordingly. Your springs and struts should come out to about 40% the price of coilovers.

TRD Springs was install today. The TRD springs are cool. The car rides better and not rough at all. I will be glad when I get off work. I am going to have some fun. Next I am getting Rear Strut Bar. Any experiences with TRD Rear Strut Bar?
