    ;) Hey guys quick question I'm thinking of redoing my suspension i currently have nuespeed springs with stock shocks and struts its pretty low and i keep bottoming out i wanted to upgrade to coilovers...my ideal set up is Koni Adjustables all around w/Groundcontrol Coil overs. What do u guys think of it? I know its a bit pricey but i'm willing to spend a lil extra and get good handleing and not damage my DC sports header anymore!!

    That is a nice set up however, for the amount your spending for like $50 more, you can have yourself a set of Tein SS's which are true coilovers (true coilovers >>>>>>> sleves)

    On group buy you can find them for about 850 and I have seen them as low as 825 on honda tech.

    :worthy: that would be my ideal setup too. B) BTW, a set of ground control coilovers only run about $300+.

    the ground controls dont come with dampeners
    so add that to the $300 pricetag
    koni yellows are about $500

    so now your at $800

    a set of true coilovers will only cost about $25-50 more

    the dampers are part of the tein coilovers, you cannot get them seperate.
    $850-$900 a set, pillow mounts are NOT included though, but you can use stock ones.

    950 for Tein SS is crazy. If you look around you can get them for almost a hunderd cheaper
