    coilover questions

    do coilovers replace the origional shocks?? i have them fitted on my car but the ride is far to harsh for my liking, can i just buy a set of springs and have them fitted?

    if i raise the coilovers will it inprove the ride, as i have heard coilovers are generally bumpy no matter what height they are set at?

    also the adjusters have been thaking out of the rear, (god knows why, were like it when i bought it) can a simple set of springs with a heigher ride height be fitted in here??

    thanks

    What coilovers are currently fitted? Some kits do give a firm ride. Generally, you get what you pay for.

    How about some eibach springs and shocks, which lower the car 30/50 front/rear?

    I know of someone who may be selling a set with aftermarket shocks shortly.
