Need some suggestions... Going to upgrade my suspension. Was going to go with BC coilovers BR series. Noticed that they offer a swift spring upgrade but don't know the difference other than the price. Any suggestions or input on what good option s are available would be highly appreciated... I have a 91 gtfour rc

Can't fault the BC coilovers although admittedly I havn't done a great deal of miles on them yet as the cam belt snapped a couple months after I fitted them :doh:

I have a 1990 GT4 narrow body and have 8Kg front, 4Kg rear springs. They're a really nice ride, very compliant.

Whatever you do, don't go with Ceika. They are junk.
I hate mine, and I tossed my old factory struts, so now I'm stuck with them.

For the money they weren't great for sure :)

If I was buying today I'd look at Feal or Fortune Auto as they both make ST185 coilovers that will bolt onto the ST165. Alternatively modify your rears to accept inserts for a much cheaper option.

Thanks for the advice! I really need to look into something better. Maybe over the winter.
