what kind of driving, whats your budget?

im not a track day regular but i have never put springs on a car. i came close to getting the Swift springs because i hear theyre all that and a bag of chips. in the end im getting coilovers.

I prefer the ride and i like keeping my stock suspension completely intact. With springs you often have to cut bump stops etc. Be careful because some of the cheaper coilovers require you to reuse mounts from your stock units, which kinda defeats the purpose and will cost you more on the install.

its just going to be daily driving, maybe some canyon cruises. nothing extreme.


what would be the best coilovers to get for it? i was looking at the 2011-12 Honda CRZ Cusco Zero 1 Coilovers.....Honda CRZ Suspension and Handling Products - CRZ Tuners

i want the best stuff for this car without having to deal with problems in the future, i dont want to do much fabricating work on it either, needs to stay in perfect condition! its just that sexy:p

i dont have coilovers yet but i think im decided on something from Tein. The Cusco Zero-1 will need you to re-use the upper mounts from your stock suspension i believe. The Zero-2 does not so you can keep your stock suspension completely intact.

In a similar price range is the Eibach coilovers. Problem with these as far as i can see is that theyre only height adjustable - you get no control over dampening. Tein makes an SS coil over for the CRZ too. If you want something cheap K-Sport just released a set but I've heard some bad things about k-sport in the past.

KW has something in the works. I would look their way if i was looking for coilovers. Affordable, and good performance.
Have KW type 1s on my CL9, will probably get the same for the Z when it is available. KW is kind of the only coilover option in Norway, since we require TÜV papers on the springs. Not that there is anything wrong with KW, I love them!

Worst part is, many of the offices that do the "approval" and require the TÜV papers don't speak german, and again ask you to have the papers translated. Sometimes I just wish the Sweedes would invade so we could actually be allowed to drive cars without being proper fu.... well you know what I mean.:rolleyes:
