Coilover Discussion

I wanted to get everyone's opinion on coilovers. My spending limit is $1200, but I am willing to spend a little more if someone can give me enough reason to spend the extra coin. Also, I would like at least 0-3.5" of height adjustability. I do not want a separate strut and sleeve combo. I want something that comes all in one and would prefer aluminum top mounts. Just so you know this car will never see the track, only occasional spirited mountain runs. Here is what I have looked into thus far:

Function Form Type II's: 0-3" Height Adj. $925

Tein Super Streets: 0-3" Height Adj. $1130

JIC Magic: They told me that they only have about 2" of height adj., is this true?

The two that I am seriously considering are:

D2 Racing RS: 0-4" Height Adj. $875
-Haven't read too much about these but what I have read has all been positive.

Ksport Kontrol Pro: 0-3.5" Height Adj. $800
-Seen a lot of mixed opinions about these.

I DO NOT WANT THE KONI/GC SETUP SO DO NOT RECOMMEND IT

Re: Coilover Discussion

I've driven cars with D2's and cars with K sports. The K sports are stiffer, but the car has less bodyroll. The D2's go a bit lower, like we slammed the K sports and the D2's still had shock to play with with the car pretty much sitting on the ground. Personally, I would take the D2's, but either coilover is a great choice and both handle wonderfully. If the car isn't going to see track time, I would say you don't really need the ultra stiff K sports. You could get away with dropping the D2's down 3.5"-4" and it would still have full shock travel and absorb bumps.

Re: Coilover Discussion

I dunno about the d2's and the k sports..... I'd have to experience them for myself to recommend them. But if LOW is your goal, these seem like the logical choice.

the tein's w/ the EDFC is a pretty sick setup, I've been in a few cars w/ these and they handle like a dream.

I went JIC to be different, because they are comparable to Tein's in price and performance. I don't regret the decision one bit.

Good luck man, hopefully someone will drop some good feedback on the d2 and ksports

Re: Coilover Discussion

i have ksport kontrol pros in my 92 prelude and it handles like a dream, they absorb bumps in the road well, and handle nicely in turns on the parkway at about 90mph.
theyre a good buy in my opinion

Re: Coilover Discussion

Another option is to look into the BC Racing BR coilovers.
Monotube, height adjustable without effecting suspension travel like the Ksports/D2's/F2's etc.

Custom spring rates available and they come with pillowball top mounts with rubber inserts.
Seems like a very high quality setup for the money.

I have a custom set ordered coming my way within the next couple of weeks. I was considering several options as well:
JIC Magic TAR, revalving/shortening my Koni's, F2 Type 2 Coilovers.

But at the end of the day, I was pretty much sold by the positive reviews from the NASIOC forum.

It should be interesting to see how they match up with my current Koni/GC setup. I'm sure they can certainly go much lower than my current setup. Will report back to see how low they can be adjusted.

Re: Coilover Discussion

i've been running the megan racing street racing series coilover kit on my 98 lude. i go to autocross meets every month and they meet my needs extremely well. Adjusting them is easy and they also give you the specifications on the type of ride you want. they hug tight corners and the big/little dips in the road are no problem for them. I've been running them for 6months now and have no complaint. If you like to do some spirited driving once and awhile i wouldnt want to spend 1200 on a suspension kit that is mainly for track users. i believe the megan coilover kit is an all around awesome kit but thats just my .02 and the price is awesome too =P

Considering all the mixed reviews about all of Megan's parts and them being a major replica/ebay brand I will be staying away from them. Besides they are just as much as the D2's I have been looking at and I doubt they have as much adjustment. Thanks for the input though.

Re: Coilover Discussion

Where are you finding the D2's for $875?

I was comparing the KSport and the D2's myself and given that you're not going for track times, the D2's sound like the best option. Lower drop and more comfort in DD.

I'm probably going to go with the D2's myself.

Well my custom 8k/6k setup came in over the weekend.
Very impressed with the build quality and the top pillowball mounts are very nice.

Quick first impressions:

-Ride quality is night and day compared to my old Koni/GC setup
-Excellent damping, more controlled and just swallows up bumps in the road with ease(smooth ride)
-Can actually feel the difference in damping with each click (30 way)
-Started off with 14 clicks from soft up front and 12 clicks from soft in the rear and the ride was very smooth (almost luxurious but controlled)
-Increased front to 16 clicks and could feel it become stiffer(almost equal to my old Koni's at full stiff)
-Height Adjustment (can easily tuck tire on the rear, fronts not quite as much but it is possible to tuck tire. See pictures below, the fronts can easily be lowered another 1/2 inch)

Overall I have to say I'm pretty impressed so far.

BTW, found out that BC has an Extreme Low Kit that can be special ordered.
Consists of shortened shocks for those who want to go really LOW. :)


Pictures below:

Re: Coilover Discussion

How do you guys feel about the Skunk2 coilover kit. I know a few people who have the pro series coilovers and they actually liked them. i never see people use them that much. I dont want the skunk2, i was just curious to see what you guys think about them?

Re: Coilover Discussion

I've got the Ksport's and I really like them. They drop the car pretty damn low(especially in the rear). Handling is great once you get everything adjusted to your liking. They ride pretty good also. its stiff but its not bouncy or anything like that. I'd definitely recommend them

Re: Coilover Discussion

OMG! this thread fell from heaven! im in the market to buy new coilovers also! well im running GC/Koni right now and I love them! buttt.... i want to go lower in the front and it doesnt allow me to. :( but i was leaning toward the D2's. I heard a lot of good things about them and I think it would be a good choice. Quality looks good and preludes that Ive seen with D2's on, can slam their cars to the ground and still have a lot of shock play. So i should have GC/Koni set up for sale soon for $550 fairly new set up ive had them on for 1K miles. For those who are interested PM Me. not trying to thread jack....

You should be able to get this low with the Koni/GC's
Got room to go down all around as well

Seems like a very high quality setup for the money.

I have a custom set ordered coming my way within the next couple of weeks. I was considering several options as well:
JIC Magic TAR, revalving/shortening my Koni's, F2 Type 2 Coilovers.

But at the end of the day, I was pretty much sold by the positive reviews from the NASIOC forum.

It should be interesting to see how they match up with my current Koni/GC setup. I'm sure they can certainly go much lower than my current setup. Will report back to see how low they can be adjusted.
^^^X2!!! this is the kit i am 95% sold on right now, the other 5% goes to jic magics, but for the money and quality the bc's cant be beat.
