 Coilovers Recomendations please Reply  Edit


While searching for coilovers i came across a few options. I'm really liking the Stance, especially since they come with spindles, camber plates and RCA's. I will be doing mainly street driving, some road course, drag and maybe drifting. If i could get some opinions on what you have used, hated, loved and why please? Thanks in advance.
These will be going on my Turbo AE86.

You forgot about BC coilovers with spindles as well and I see Megan Racing is also coming out with Spec-RS Coilovers soon as well. Im perrty set on the bc's but I want to see what the new Megan's are going to be like.

All the ones you have listed are made in china. They should all be about the same.

Best setup is to make your own using high quality parts. Hts shocks and trd or swift springs is an unbeatable combo. Or dg5 but they are priced accordingly.

I hear the greddy type s coilovers are terrible well the rears anyways.. (too stiff valved for r compounds) So i'm told anyways.. Heard nice things about the stance.. as far as k sport or megan not a fan.

on my personal car i run custom front coilover setup

front
shortened casing with weld on sleeve 8kg spring, tein camber plate, t3 nrcra, with kyb agx ss shock

rear
trd spring 6kg with kyb agx ss shock

Just build your own. It's incredibly easy, you get to say you made them, and it's with quality parts, AND it's a fraction of the cost!

I've used the daymotorsports spring spacers for my Alfa track car. The quality is the lowest of the low, but for the price I decided to go with it. I bought the non-height adjustable spring perches.

All I can say is that the blue springs sold by Daymotorsports are off on the spring rates by like 40%. I did the math, bought some blue springs and they were much too stiff for what they were supposed to be. IF you under shoot their listed rates by about 40-50% like I mentioned, I think you will be close. I would just get spring spacers that fit the TRD or Swift racing springs.

LOL +1 on what Mr. John Said

Greddy is made in Taiwan

you just can't go wrong when you are using the best shocks (TRD or HTS) with TRD or Swift Springs

Re-read his post. They are STD coilovers.

I have
tokiko hts short stroke shocks
gc coilovers with 8kg gc springs in the front
t3 camber plates
t3 rca's
t3 lateral bar
6.5kg rear swift springs

I actually felt like 1500$ did something to my car for once. So ima have to agree with mr. john. Best setup ez unless you have the cash to get a kei office setup?

I'm planning on following that more-or-less. I already have T3 NRCA's and an adjustable lateral bar.

I suggest picking up a Speedway Motors racing catalog. Tons of springs, perches, sleeves, etc. for making your own. They sell tons of thread shocks, too for rears.

Im not sure exactly sure what model Cusco sleeves my friend used but the frame of them was black and 'extremely rare' as he said. He had 9kg trd springs front and 7 in the rear. Supposedly an amazing setup.

i'm using greddy and I cant say they are any better than my old setup:

front:
Ground Control Coil Overs w/ 9kg springs
shortened strut casing
hts shocks
cusco camber plates
cusco rcas

rear:
trd springs 7kg
hts shocks
cusco lateral rod

the ONLY thing i like about the greddy is you can adjust rear ride height, but that's not really saying much, IMO they are cool for daily driving.

Lower rates: soft and comfortable. AGXs are soft and poorly valved.
Fine for show or restoration. Soft and boring otherwise.

6k / 4k with HTS for daily, and some light track/ grip, Learn to drift, etc. Great daily setup that's real world usable and nice for "touge".

8/6 for some street, mostly track or drift.
Greddys are decent for a track rat but suck on the street, over bumps and on the highway they can be scary. Stance are the nicest affordable off the shelf option.

Higher rates; Hard core drift setup.

Bonus round: JRZ or Moton if your a real baller. Custom rates and valving. The sex of coilovers. Amazing.

Here's a tip from me who has the Stance, get an LSD if you do! I almost considered the rear suspension useless until I got the LSD in for this last event. Before LSD the rear end was bouncing all over in turns. I think it made me SLOWER than stock as Id be fighting this. After the LSD was installed, that problem went away. What was happening was in turn as exiting I'd try to accelerate, but the inside tire would spin, then momentarily hook up, cause the car to jerk, wheel start spinning again, grip momentarily, etc. With the LSD the power application was consistent, and oversteer became instantly possible.

D-2 are nothing like k sports . D-2 = cheaply made pile of poop.

ive rocked K sports before and yes the shocks do blow nuts but K sports never snapped in half for me when i spun out or went into a rocky dried up riverbed/hit mountain walls...

Unlike D-2 so ive heard and seen pics of snapping in half on a 240sx just because of sliding it... but never for k sports...... So i dont know how d-2 even compares with k sports or is even up in the polls..............

i have greddys now and i love them for dd!!!! beats my homemade setup and k sport that i use to rock. Only down fall is the spring rates on greddys if you want to do some hardcore track/drift imo but they can be changed oh and price maybe .....

Pay your moneys worth for something nice and you wont regret it. Greddys! for dd or t3 or make your own. <br /><br />
