I'm planning on upgrading my suspension from stock...

neither am I looking for a hard/bumpy ride.
any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

TIA,

I don't know of anyone who wants a hard and bumpy ride! For starters get a system that is purpose-oriented. If you are going to track your Supra, you will need height adjustment in addition to preload adjustment. If all you want is slightly lower stance, you don't need to tie-up $1400 or more in a coilover system. Lastly, make sure your bushings are in order before you start.

Once you go to a descent set of complete coilovers I doubt you'll ever consider the lowering spring/ stock style shock combo again.

With as cheap as the TEIN basics are or even some of the more adjustable types out there I don't even see the point of spending $700ish on adjustable shocks and lowering springs anymore.

If you're really tight on $$ you could always to a matched set like the tokico illuminas w/ springs for under $600 but...
Even if you prefer stock ride height I'd still do a nice coilover set for the added body control, better turn-in, etc.
