Default Re: anyone heard or try this coilover

Its funny you should post this because of the description of these coilovers.

1) Look at the description. It has no spring rates even though has dampning control.

2) Go and look at other systems in the SAME price area, the descriptions are very similar, and vague. They basically tell you that it does what a damn coilover is supposed to do anyway. Its not a REAL feature... its how any system will behave. Nitrogen filled...yeah all of them are lol wtf mate!

3) Most cheap systems are made in foreign countries with no R&D. Thus they have poor unmatched valving. Ill explain in 4

4) Basically, these cheap kits do not match the spring rate properly to the valving of the shock. This is due to cheaper cost and no R&D..they give a stiff spring with a soft shock to simulate dampning, but they never match. You do have dampning control HOWEVER, I would not expect much from the dampning system, they are often cheap and do not adjust properly.

You would have like 3 on one side and 5 on the other and 6 and 1 or some ****. IT WOULD PROBABLY BE THAT WAY EVEN IF YOU TURNED THEM THE SAME. These shocks just are not performers, so why waste time and money, i was taught to do it right the first time and move onto the next project

5) Lastly, go to Function and Form, or any major suspension brand website. Or even look for their products from the same website you were on. What you will notice is that the description of the system and the R&D results are more detailed and precise. That is why you pay more.

6) I would recommend saving 300 more and going with a Ksport, or Form and Function system. They have a proven record, and many guys with our accords run them.

7) You are going to pay $600 + Shipping= $800.....go to the Honda-tech Marketplace, the vendors will sell Form and Function and all the good ones. They are only $850 shipped and perform the **** out of these JSK's. I just got quotes for a bunch last week from PM-ing a bunchof vendors. They were all $850-$950 shipped.

8) Suspension is a critical component, it wont take you long to save up the cash for the nicer ones, especially since you would really pay the same anyway....so why not go for the gold.

you always get what you pay for, cheap suspension is bumpy, valved horribly, and does not carry a long warranty....they do blow out frequently...so imagine it blowing at 70mph....not fun

hope this helps

Cheers!

I have see these on cars at the shows here in Ohio.
They look good but never asked anyone who had them how they handled.

Good luck with them if you buy them.

From what ive heard in regards to our year accord. Ksport are WAY more realiable and build better than D2's

Also, form and Function seem to be favored more than Ksport, for reliability issues. both seem similar IMO.

Cheap Coilovers<D2<Ksport<Form and Function<AMR...>>in order lowest to highest.

AMR are the best hands down, ask anyone on HT. BUUUUUT They are $1450 from AMR, a group buy would prolly make them about $1000 schipped if you got 10 homies..well 9 plus you.

Cheers!

I have these on my Integra and I have been really impressed with them. The pistons are very large and the strut bodies are super beefy. The rates are 8k F and 6k R and the are 20 way dampening adjustable. I've had F&F type 2's in the past and these are way beefier and sturdier than the F&F were. Just my input. Worth the money IMO.
