FK will be a good setup but their cheaper sets can tend to rust out and leak after a couple years. If you can wait it out and save up for a little more expensive kit you will definitely benefit. Some cup kits can be had for under $900 and most coilovers for around $1100. Those cheap FK kits will definitely be a good fit and ride but you just might be looking at sooner maintenance then if you just spend a bit more.

you'll probably be OK in WA. I was coming from new england where everything rusts. Do yourself a favor. If you go with the FK's just buy some clear rust resistant pray paint like rustoleum and give them a good coat. Don't get any on the shaft though. Or even a good primer then paint them whatever color you want. It should prevent from rusting for a while. And get a rubber sleeve for the shaft if you can. Anything to keep them from getting too much crap on/in them.
