    I just wanted to know everyone's opinion on what the best coilover is to dump my hatch. Ive replaced all the bushings with urethane bushings and now its ready to get dumped:D !!!

    ground controls are completely customizable per application (if you get them from the manufacturer)...if you want to upgrade from the kybs, you can always go to koni yellows.

    I really enjoyed the Tein Flex with the pillowball mounts. You can independently adjust your spring preload and your coilover height, so you can get a true corner balance.

    If you want Moton or Ohlins, first make sure you are in good standings with

    Visa Global Gateway

    If your going drag, then you want just really stiff in the rear, however, your not going to find the ride quality very favorable.

    Yeah, realistically - maybe D2's, the new gen Omni's, or Teins. Progress makes a coilover - but not many people run them. If its setup for drag, Omnipower makes a kit specifically with super-high rear spring rates.
