i need a new suspensino and im looking at true coilovers. im looking at apexi ws, tanabe, and tein. i NEED a system that is height adjustable because i live in new england. i want somethign that will handle well, give a good ride and will also lower my car enough. i will have a greddy front lip on it and wings west skirts, so i was wondering if it will look low enough, because i hear tanabe's dont drop that much? need some help if anyone has these or input.

I using the tanabe sustec pro ss at the lowest drop and mine doesn't bottom out. It handles great, maybe a little stiff but tolerable.

boostn5Ghaba: do you have any pics of your car on how they sit? and what kind of car is it? You say its a little stiff but its dampening adjustable


undecided59: ive heard alot about tein's also. only negative part i heard about tein was that sometimes it begins to rust and corrode? heard that a few times

It's on a 94 civic hb. My setting is at 1 in the front and 3 in the rear. I don't mind the ride at all...it just my passengers that are making the comments. Sorry I don't know how to post pics. Email me if you want to see them still. [email protected]
