uh, do you mean Struts with convential spring configuration compared to Coilover struts.

I think it depends where your at in your skill level. But coilovers I have always heard performs better and has a better ride at higher spring rates than a convential setup with equal high spring rate.

They're not mutually exclusive. Coilovers still use struts.
