PostSubject: What Coilovers To Get   Wed Dec 02, 2009 4:31 am

Im now looking to replace my TEMS suspension with some height adjustable coilovers with camber adjustment.

But if i'm going to replace my TEMS, i don't want to end up with a rough ride, after all it is my daily driver so i wan't a nice smooth ride.

Any recommendations?

Ive always been a fan on tein coilovers, you can even have the EDFC (electronic damping force controller)!!!!

i had tein springs in my old Corolla, the ride quality was fairly good and was a difference in handling from the springs alone! Shocked

Definitly TEIN. Super street coilover kit with EDFC and you're the man!!!

Would love to have them on my car, but because of the superstrut suspension, a set would cost me over €2100 No (over 3150 us dollar)

Thats the problem i got with TEIN is the price. The coilovers alone cost more than my car Laughing

They are my first choise though, if not there is D2 and Megan racing.

Quality of D2 and Megan is a completly different ballgame compared to TEIN. Though TEIN is pricey, better than that you won't get elsewhere.

Yea, the quality is definetly worth the money, just a few more weeks of saving which isn't too bad.

One thing that caught my attention on the TEIN website is that for me to have the EDFC, i would need the Carlos Sainz bonnet Shocked

Makes sense because the EDFC sits on top of your struts, so you acquire more space on top. The CS/RC bonnet has vents on top of the struts. But even without the EDFC, I would go with TEIN anyway.

Or you can fit some spacers on the hinges of the bonnet, if you like that look.
