How much did those springs run you?  I've been thinking very heavily of some suspension upgrades, and im not sure if the coilover route is the best or just a simple spring/shock replacement.

Maybe $200 or so.  If you still have stock shocks you'll need to upgrade those as well.  In that  case, you may want to get Jason Patel's used H&R coilovers. Jason. Patel@Colorado. Edu  Let him know I sent you.
I think he wants around $700 or so.  You'd pay more for new springs and shocks.
