    Suspension what ones???

    mods please dont move as you seem to get a better response in this section.....


    basically my sus. is nackered so its time for an upgrade. i have been looking on the net and there are so many i dont really know where to start. i want em as cheap as poss but i know you get what u pay for ect ect so ill say i fdont wana go any higher than £400. i need the whole kit, dampeners and springs or coilovers but again i dont know what whould be better...

    i want sus. that will help minimise body roll on corners and handle well, but still not too hard of a set up. i dont wana be feeling when i run over stones....lol

    Thanks in advance

    the coilovers we had for £140 from ebay from tuning leader... was a min should of searched for it before replying..... hold on a sec! let me find the thread

    EDIT:
    Here it is!

    to put it short and to stop you reading over 50 pages.
    tell the seller your a paying member of the site, if not then give him an offer of £140 for the coilovers.

    alot of us has them on, and so do i! They're suprisingly comfortable
    i've not really tested it round corners as its winter, and my last accident was in winter, just after i lowered the car too so to avoid doing that again not tested it round corners properly.

    well for a budget of £400 i'm sure the problems can be fixed by the garage, with some change still left over .

    Got a garage to fit mine :P as its too cold.
    only problem after that was tracking, and camber adjusting. excluding buying it, it all cost £140
