Are you lowering or tuning up the suspension? Then Progress if you're on a budget. KW if you can afford it. You'll find many opinions here. Those are my recommendations based on tons of research and firsthand use.I just recently bought a 02 type s & in need of new coilovers , need to get an idea of what’s the best that can take bumps on the road with out it sounding like the end of the world every time I hit a little bump
I second this. I have the basic Teins. They're fine for street driving.another perception.
take SCAA/NASA schooling. you will find out Tein's basic model will serve you just fine on the street. in fact you will never max out the basic units on public roadways. you just can't pull the G's unless you are flying off a Jersey Wall or jumping off an exit ramp like i did driving road course speeds.
tracks are prepped to get a top coilover unit it's money's worth...
just get a basic model, BC Racing, Tein ( I had tein before), like Chromesteel said, do new extended ball joints, tie rods, etc. some trackers will tell you to wait to install suspension arm bushings or spherical bearings until driving the car on the coilovers with most suspension done. if you go too hard, the car will feel like a pothole rolling over a dime.
