i have the megans and am very happy with them, the spring rates are perfect for a dd and the price is great too.

I have f&f type 1s on my 5th gen and love them. They are great coilovers for the price and have a great reputation.

Re: which should i get??? NEED HELP..

another plus for the megan's is the pillow ball mounts. and the only thing that stinks bout the tein is that they don't come with top mounts and have to use the stock ones. and i don't wanna do that. the function and forms have alot of great reviews an a lot of rep behind them and plus great price. but i love my car and i want it to ride as close as i can get to stock ride just not stock ride height lol

Re: which should i get??? NEED HELP..

I'm trying to make the same decision for coilovers. Look at the F&F Type 2 and Two.5's. Type 2's offer dampening and stiffer spring rates, I believe. Also, the 2.5 allows you to choose your sprint rates. Then again, depends on your price range.

Re: which should i get??? NEED HELP..

Those were pretty much my options too, I went with Megan. I couldn't be happier. I like it a lot. And I think it's worth the $100 or so more than F&F

Megan Racing is an eBay brand, enough said.
Go with something else.
