Function and Form Coilovers?

Has anybody heard of these coilovers? I am thinking of getting them after they were recommended by a pretty reputable tuning shop in nor cal. Here is their site. f2autolife.com Let me know what you think.

Re: Function and Form Coilovers?

I read somewhere that they are very good. Well the F&F Type 2 fully adjustable ones that is. Pretty much the same as the Tein flex but cheaper. I plan to get the Type 2 coilovers in the near future.

Re: Function and Form Coilovers?

Yeah, I don't really need adjustable ones. I was planning on just getting spings and shocks but can't find shocks made for the SH by KYB, or Koni. I know Tokico makes some but a lot of people complain about them being too soft. Now I ran into these others from AMR Engineering which look nice. Decisions decisions.... Thank for taking the time to post about these.

Re: Function and Form Coilovers?

Disregard product manuals, they fit the SH

F2 coilovers are great. They're on the short list for when I eventually do my suspension.

Re: Function and Form Coilovers?

Josh showed me the type 1's when I was asking him about suspension crap. He said the were very good and cheap. I'm planing on getting some later.

i heard of them, from what ive heard they used for comfort not for really "racing" and all that, unless you get the function form type 2 or something
these coilovers are what i plan on getting. or i mean the type ones. but once again, from what i heard, they ride pretty smooth.

Re: Function and Form Coilovers?

ya they are a pretty reputable company, was looking at the type 1's my self. but if your gonna do the type 2's think you'd be better off for damn near the same price gettin a set of Ksport Version RR's.. Which are custom valved/sprung per your order.

he's not talking about just adjust coilover sleeves. he's talking about fully adjustable coilovers. if you dont know the difference, i can make a picture by picture walk through for you. LMAO

Re: Function and Form Coilovers?

It's all good ya'll! You have all been of great help after some thought and a bunch of research I am going to choose between the F2s Type 1s or Eibach Prolines with Konis. Leaning towards the Eibach set up just because I have heard nothing but awesome things about Eibach. Thanks again!

in the end i would pick up a set of the type 1's, because you can get them for about the same pricing you'd pay for eibach w/ koni's. but with the type 1's you'd have more adjustability. might also look at the Ksport Kcontrol pro's, they run about the same pricing as well.

you need to give more info about your setup before making rash judgements like you did. im guessing you had sh!tty ebay coilovers on stock struts?? thats the reason they rode so sh!tty, you gotta pay to play.

Re: Function and Form Coilovers?

... I'm debating on if I really want to get involved with this thread....

I guess I'll just say this.

If you are only looking to lower your center of gravity to make it look better while making it handle a little better I would going with the Function & Form Type1 set.

If you want to lower your center of gravity and have the ability to adjust stiffness go with the Type2 set.

To me it really only sounds like you would really only be interested in the Type1 set, that is what I will be putting on my new Prelude while putting Type2 on my CRX.

You can get the Type1 coilovers for $630 shipped from several sites. Their stiffness is preadjusted for "spirited driving" and you can still adjust ride height.

There are not a whole lot of companies I would swear by but Function and Form is one of them.

Re: Function and Form Coilovers?

Oh snap! Not to add more confusion but I just found out about AMR racing and spoke with Andy the owner. He can make me a set of coilovers that have set dampening. Looks like they are building a really good product but I have to wait about 5 weeks and they cost about 300 more. I won't be tracking it but when I am on highway 17 (Santa Cruz, CA) or roads like it I want to feel confident on the turns

Re: Function and Form Coilovers?

its not just about spring/strut combo when feeling confident in your car. imo, tires have more of an affect on this than anything. there are so many more things that go into producing a good car that does great in the turns than just spring/strut.

X2!!! i knwo with my car the stiffer springsi got ground control coils) did help me feel more confident going into a corning at high speeds, but like you said, by far the tires are what matter most in that.


Edit; wow i must have been tired as fuck or something when i wrote this...

You were reading my mind!!

Yoshi you could benefit from clicking on the link in my sig. This whole thread could have been put in one of your other 2 posts about the same topic.

Re: Function and Form Coilovers?

hey guys, i just installed function form type 1's on my car two days ago. installation was smooth for the fronts, but once you hit the back it's gonna be very troublesome. This explains it all:
My coilover NIGHTMARE. - Preludepower.com (applies only to 5th gens)

sorry to kinda thread jack but does anyone know how to lower the fronts more because i want to be tucking tire and the lowest it will go is a one finger gap. (by the way im running on stock rims and normal tires).
