What brand of coilover do you favor most? Why do you like the brand? Do you own that coilover kit?











Not for my personal use. ^o^

I know they don't make them for many applications, but my vote goes to Koni

I had an awesome experience with JIC but I've heard of very very poor customer service.

Just for the massive selection and giant list of applications, I'll vote for Eibach. Sometimes an overly harsh ride is just what you need to keep yourself in check.

silver is on a distinguished road
there are way too many companies to list, let's see i've used the following:
buddy club rsd
spoon fixed and n1
mugen ss
nismo s tune
aragosta tuned by top secret
zeal super function
moton
tein src's (i won't use their cheaper crap)

out of all of them i felt that the mugen/spoon/nismo were best quality.
best performance was the spoon n1 and aragosta followed by moton then src's.

ergonomic is on a distinguished road
H&R is probably the best bang for the buck. they use genuine bilstein dampers that are dam near perfectly matched to the springs they pair them to. they're usually not adjustable, but i know a few people who track them and love them. i have them on my MR2, and my ride is 100x better than my old integra with H&R springs/AGX shocks. there's surprisingly little roll for how soft the springs are (compared to other mfr's).

if you want a car that rides well on the street and turns well on the track for under a grand, look into whether they make a set for whatever you drive.

You got that right. Thatís why I put other for one of the categories asking for the name. HKS has a nice selection on the JP site but not the so much on the US. Buddy Club makes some nice coilover kits. I guess it depends on what you're planning to do with the car and what's your budget.





I'm feelin pink. ^o^
