Coilover Recommendations

Hi guys, I am thinking about getting a set of coilovers. . I heard Ksport aren't that great, tein basics are poop, and there are a couple more.... What do you guys recommend? and experiences? Thanks!

the tein ss? are supposed to be good, get the pillow ball mounts. I can't really help, I just have a spring/shock combo, with urethane bushings and spc balljoints.

tein basics are just that. basic, bottom line coilovers. i'm a firm believer in you get what you pay for. the more you pay the more you get... with few exceptions. teins are good. i wouldn't knock them. Function & Form are good. JIC are a great set, but are very expensive. do some research. find out what you want in a coilover. like as far as how much adjustability for softness/hardness do you want. look at the spring rates. twin tube vs single tube. there are so many variations out there. just because i like a set of coilovers and joe blow likes his set and jane blow likes her set doesn't mean you are gonna like all 3. you might like some other set.

I have a set of bushings. I just wanted to coilovers because, Handling > 1/4 mi times IMO. No matter how fast you get to the turn its how you take the turn (i learned this in Gran turismo haha jk)
