    Red face suspension query: difference between coilover & cup-kit

    hi guys!

    I run since 1 year a turbo coupe lowered with eibach springs, and want to upgrade to something more stable / lower.

    what's the difference between a cup kit and coilover ?

    thank you !

    coilover kit allows you to adjust the height, upto 60-70mm lower but they are very harsh ride!

    what about getting the 50mm eibach springs and koni shocks ???

    thank you mate!

    Do you think that koni shocks with 50mm eibach springs (I assume that these are the springs I own?) will make the difference ?

    I always thought the Coilovers would give a harsh ride, I recently borrowed Autosparks coupe turbo for the day, he has the FK coilovers fitted and I have to say I was suprised how comfortable it was

    This convined me to buy a set

    are they worth the price compared to a cupkit (koni shocks + eibach springs for example)?

    I found this EIBACH Pro Street coilover kit on eBay. It seems a good deal

    Is it good/better than FK or koni ?

    i would go for a coilover kit Koni first but the FK ones are also good for the money

    luke79 surely being in nice your going euro style?

    Airbag/Hydralics are the future for you son.

    I've just got back from 100% Tuning Show at Flanders Expo in Gent Belgium and they are the flavour of the month for Astra G's.
