What should I buy?
 
Ok so I've been thinking about what the next thing I should get for my car should be. And I'm torn between the Cobb accessport or a full coilover suspension. I really don't like the stock height but I know I'm gonna need that tune soon. As for upgrades that I have now it's a very short list lol. Just a Godspeed catback and turbosmart hybrid bov. What would you guys suggest?

coilovers

jbones1371 06-26-2011 03:25 PM

What would you suggest on brand? I've been looking at tein.

basco 06-26-2011 03:31 PM

Tein is garbage, I personally recommend KW

jbones1371 06-26-2011 03:52 PM

I've never heard of them but I will definitely look at them.

or you could do both by buying my brand new Koni inserts (hint hint) and a good set of springs and plates, and still afford the AP.

Don't get an AP. You can just get a professional tune for a couple hundred instead.

I don't know much about coilovers, but my mechanic recommends BC Racing coilovers. They are a good price, about $1000 per set.

jbones1371 06-26-2011 06:03 PM

Well I looked up both sets and I will be going with one of them lol just not sure which ones... I like the price tag and color of the bc racing but I have always lived by "you get what you pay for" so I would think the kw's would be a better buy but there yellow and purple and with my 18" rims you will probably see it... And I don't wanna go any lower than about an inch maybe inch and a half

I wouldn't use your mechanic anymore.

Why do you think you need coilovers? How many competitive sanctioned events do you race in each season?

jbones1371 06-26-2011 10:14 PM

Its not that I need them but since i have 18" rims the gap between the fenders and tires really bothers me. It just sits to high for my taste. Would you suggest just springs? Its only gonna be a daily driver. Won't be doing anything to serious with it until my engine blows lol but that hopefully wont be for awhile.

A good spring/strut combo is all you need then. Coilovers will be a waste of money if you dont plan on a nice aggressive alignment, corner balancing and all that.

kelvin 07-05-2011 12:50 AM

i think you should buy both of them.

jhony 07-07-2011 06:21 AM
