there are alot to choose from and i dont think there is any single "Best" solution. There is a pretty big rangse of features on coilovers, and each set is typically geared towards a certain type of driving: daily driving, drag, track, drift, general.

The best? haha.. the best for what? :)

Do you need individual reservoir, adjustable rebound and bump, along with double adjustable height?

What's good for the goose isn't always good for the gander.


For under $1000, there is no "good" coilover suspension. (IMO.. i'm strict on suspension)
For under $2000, the HKS RS or HipermaxII
For under $3000, the Zeal
Over $5000? Aragosta, Ohlins, etc.. But I seriously doubt you need this level of damping. :)

actually, if you must go under $1000 - Tein Basic's work very well

Under $2k - hands down, HKS RS, though we have some new AST's coming that should be "the dog's bollocks" as they say :) We will be testing some soon. Aragosta what? AST is, shall we say "closely related" to AST!

Under $3k, for a wide range of uses, Zeal without question

I had the both Ohlins PCV and Quantum from Central20 on and they were both FANTASTIC! But the Tein MONO FLEX is also pretty good, I had this set on also! And it doesn't cost 5gs for the Ohlins/ Quantum. Anyone who is SERIOUSLY interested I am thinking to sell.

You are correct. the Ohlin's PCV are only $2750. However, Ohlins offer other sets not intended for street use. :cheers:

Would any of those "other" setups include one's with 3 or 4 way dampning adjustablity?

So if I read the carrozzeria Japan web site correctly, they also offer the DFV coilover which has the PCV valving system, but add's height adjustablity seperate from spring preload.

The PCV setup that Z1 sells, what is the min and max ride height range?

They are genuine Ohlins and not the unit's that Impal makes under license, correct?
