i don't think edrick needs $3k or $4k coilovers i think he just needs some new springs.

its street driven
he's a newbie
he just wants a 'good drop'
probably not worried about adjustability

go with something easy:

even tho this is in jdm forum, who knows why? i'd saycheck out eibach's. pro-kits aren't the cheapest springs. but they're the best for a nice ride and they don't drop the car so low that you will scrape up your car on ramps, driveways, etc. highly recommended.

h&r's are similar and also nice springs

if u want something cheaper, a and a little lower:

get some espelirs or tein springs

KW Variant 3 Coilovers. None better for under $3000. If you're going over $3000 look into JRZ's or Motons. Most JDM coilovers make the car handle worse.
I hope you were seriously JJ.



Mind as well get 24 K gold shocks and springs w/ a diamond or two attached to it, eh?

whoa buddy, I was just pointing out the flaw inherently there when saying you can't get anything better than X for Y amount... if you want to take it personally and say I've ruined your post, whatever... it comes down to the same thing I stated before, it's all subjective. Also, last I checked, this is a JDM forum, and I don't recall KW being manufactured in Japan...
I hadn't attacked anyone prior to that post that day. Guess it was your luck.

I agree this is a JDM forum, but he asked a very broad question, so my answer involved a broad array of selections. I gave him the best answer I had from the knowledge I've gained about suspension kits. That knowledge is based on shock dyno tests and track feedback that other members have had with JDM coilovers. In which, most of them performed poorly compared to other coilovers manufactured in US, Europe, etc. That is not subjective.

To an extent I was just joking, but on a more realistic side, didn't we all just start wanting a little and buying a lot.

Oh yeah, if those 24K gold shocks and diamond studded springs are offered as a group buy let me know.

It should also be pointed out that some JDM coilovers are made in Europe...take the Top Secret coilovers for example, they use Aragosta Dampers (Europe) and Swift Springs (Japan). Companies like TEIN on the other hand, are giving some Japanese companies a bad name, the stuff sold in the U.S. is manufactured in in Taiwan/China and much softer than their JDM spec lineup. (point is, not all Japanese suspension is equal)
my friend just put tein coilovers on his srt-4. should i assume these are the chinese/taiwanese versions? thats pretty hilarious i thought they were all shipped over from japan. he was trying to impress me by putting something jdm on his american car. hahaha

Ohlins are great if you want a awesome suspension and still obtain a smooth ride. They are kind of costly though.

you shouldnt put any 3k coilovers on a street driven car. since it sounds like you want something cheap t1r is suppose to be good(1k) and the tein flexes are like 1350-1400 in gbs. i have a set of D2 coilovers if you are interested. ~800 unopened in the box
