Coilovers

Postby Curry » Wed Jan 09, 2013 10:44 pm

So I was tossing around the idea of either coils or the ground control setup. (for my ST165)

I'm leaning towards the K-sport coils for the st185... can anyone tell me what I can expect to pay for them? I've seen them ranging anywhere from $600 all the way up to $1700.

Get the cheapest coilover possible, then do a re-valving job , change main seal for a better quality one, re-pressurize (if no cartridge) and voila great coilover , durable , cheap! :D

I was leaning more towards the K-sports. Had them on my SC300 and I had BC's on my GS300 both were great.

I've seen the K-sports for about 900 or best offer on e-bay... The car is just for daily driving but I don't even use it all week its mostly 2-3 days now. No plans for any auto cross or anything at least not for a long time. So around 800-900 seems reasonable to me. The extra cash I can throw at other things that need fixing like the head :shoots:

Anybody heard of these guys?

I found a couple reviews scattered around the subaru and myIS forums and so far all the reviews are positive... Don't know anyone that personally has these...

I think you should have a talk with MXP_57 he's the director of http://www.ceikaperformance.com and they make custom coilovers for under 1000$. The quality looks really nice, you should pm him. They also make big brake kits. As for CX racing, it's an american ebay brand with some decent products. They have some good stuff like radiators, intercoolers and exhausts and even some turbos (not all of them are good unfortunately). For the same price I'm pretty sure you can get better than cx racing.
Good luck!

Good to know. I probably don't plan to drop that much on it now.

When i do decide i want to track the car ill probably invest in something in that 1,500 range. For now I guess its just something to haul the groceries while I work on it little by little.

In that case, if your shocks are good why not go for some lowering springs? and a sway bar would be nice :)

I got custom coilovers on eBay I believe from a member on here. They are fantastic. 8kg/mom is good for front and back, maybe a tad softer on the back, but mine aren't adjusted correctly so I'm not sure about what it is supposed to be
