i think at enjuku they have that combo for about 500, go check it out guyslideurride said:if u are going to race then save up and buy coilovers, it will be worth the doller in the long run.
if you are going to use your car just for weekend fun or whatever then i would go with the kyb agx + tein s. tech. you can get the whole set for about 500 if you look in the right places.
Most oem type shocks cant handle increased spring rates or a drop of more then an inch or so i believe. Even if it works for a while your struts will wear quickly.JDM240Turbo said:I have tien lowering springs and stock struts. I'm about to replace the struts with KYB gr-2 gas struts. Does anyone know if this is a good combo?
my shocks are holding up pretty well for just 6 months w/ the sportlines.zlr101 said:Most oem type shocks cant handle increased spring rates or a drop of more then an inch or so i believe. Even if it works for a while your struts will wear quickly.
I'm trying to get a KTS coilover group buy together. Everyone that has them has said they love them. Price should be just around $1000. PM me for details.joerc240sx said:Well i have been looking alot into it lately also. A friend of mine that helps run the SCCA program here localy has a 92 coupe 240 with ground control coilovers and koin yellows. His 240 handles great and has a daily drivable ride. the only problem he has is his spring rate is to high for the shocks, but you can rebuild the koin shock and revalve it so that it works with a stiffer spring.
The setup is pretty cheap when compaired to a coilover setup and would only set you back around 700. gives you ajustable ride hight control for corner balancing, and dampaning control with the shock.
Wow that is lower then i thought pro-kits lowerd a car. Maybe it will come back up with better shocks but prokits arent hard on struts i belive u can run them with gr-2s and have the warranty but i did like the agx.DaCheat said:I replaced my stock Springs with a set of Eibach Pro-Kit springs
I find the Pro-Kit springs gave my car the stance i was looking for, and still provide the room i need in the wheel well for my 17" rims
PS: i think the lowering measurements are 1.8" front, 1.6" rear
Most people don't use their daily driver as a track and drift car... but if you're going to want to go all out, get whatever your preference is. You can get used to the stiffness and driving carefully around potholes everyday.KaRdoN said:well, what would you reccomend for a daily driver setup thats also going to be used as a track car, and drift car, i plan on going all out, but i wanted to know if any of you have a special setup you prefer
