Which coilovers are best?

Alright within the next month or 2 im gona be getting coilovers and a spc 3 arm camber kit.

What i need help on deciding is, what brand to go with for the coilovers.

What i've seen most on this forum is megans, what do u guys think i should go for. Any input is appreciated

Another thing i was thinking of is getting rims first then the coils since i have H&R Springs... But im afraid since i don't have a camber kit the tires might wear more than usual, which i don't want on a nice set of tires...

Thanks in advance guys

you gotta use more than three characters. It won't search if you just type "LED" or "HID".

coilovers come down to personal preference after researching about each one. None of them are bad...it's just what you want to achieve in the end.

the search worked -_-

Well after looking around, Ground control wouldnt be a good choice...

From what i saw the best choice would be either megans or K sports... I've never seen anyone on here with K sports....

Anyone with this coilovers wanna add some comments?

My vote would go for BC Racing's (what I'm currently riding on and mrhnugen had) or Megan's if you are looking to go low. Tein SS's are also good.

The most popular are by far the Megan's. I've sold a lot of sets to the forum!

you live in FL so teins would be a preferred brand among a lot of people. Here in Colorado i know of noone that is glad they made the purchase and wish they had gotten something else. I have D2s installed on my car and I absolutely love them, the ride is real nice only slightly stiffer than stock but if you didnt know you wouldnt notice the difference. I on the other hand notice a great improvement in handling plus everyone loves the way it looks. Oh yeah something else to consider is that Tein basics dont have a damper adjustment, the tein ss's on the other hand have damper adjustment but people have complained that they didnt have the option to go real low. These people have also said that they like it on the lowest setting but a little upset that IF they'd wanna go lower they dont have that option. The D2s on the other hand you can go as low as the chassis will allow. Megan, ksport, and last but absolutely not least D2s is the way i would go. I haven't heard anything about the BC coilovers so I'd stick to the 3 I listed. They have a combination of price and quality.
