Coilovers for rally/daily driver possible?

I'm curious as to which kind of coil overs to start saving for. I'm partial to mono tube design for certain, but I don't need something that is undrivable for regular to and fro type driving as well. They're all height adjustable it seems, but I have no clue when it comes to coilovers and I'd would like them rally capable. Not necessarily the top of the line pure rally breed set, but something that can take a beating and keep me from bottoming out (yeah, the skid plates are in the works!). Is this just a pipe dream idea or do such things actually exist? All I keep getting in response are for auto cross... I'm talking dirty, gravel chewing, rally! Streets are fun, but no near as fun as off the beaten (paved) path!

I have heard decent things about ksport gravel spec, they are around 1600, so not cheap but not like dms price. Thinking about those myself

I'm wondering if the Ksport gravel spec's would be ok for daily driving as well. From what I know you get a ton of travel with them and lots of adjust-ability. Also, that you want small to zero sways so the suspension can do it's independent deal while on the rally course, but might help a little for smoother tracks. I put the 20mm Whiteline bar on the rear, but I don't know how that's going to effect the travel rates (I imagine not good on uneven terrain...). I read up on BC's and they seem awesome for street and track, but no feedback at all for gravel specs or just rally in general. I can't imagine that's a good thing, lol. I really just want shocks I can pump up and raise so I can go get off road and dirty, not serious competition ya know. But I don't want to be bending stuff or bottoming out (even though I'll have some skid plates soon enough) just from pushing a little. Think "happy median" type deal, lol. Thanks for the input guys. I'm searching alot since they're expensive and I have some time yet 'till I get them. Too much time :P


Only use roads to get to the dirt; Then keep it sideways! >;D
