    Default Coilovers

    Can anyone reccomend a decent set of coilovers without payin silly money? I am looking at the £500 mark and would prefer the adjustable ones so i can lower and raise them to suit.

    Thanks

    Ive just come across these, they seem very reasonable dont they!

    What do you think? Would i need to adjust anything else after fitting these? Camber adjustment, tracking or anything? Or should they go straight on without a problem?

    Cheers

    Bigman has fk coilovers on his and i have used them in the past on my other car, very good coilovers in my opinion. ive got KW coilovers on my vec at the min.
    they will fit straight on but u will need, tracking and camber sorted. with the front struts the camber can be altered quite a bit, and when this is altered the trackin will be altered as a result.
    its always good practice to get the car fully aligned after any suspension component change/repair.

    if u can find a garage with a "hunter" alignment system, they do camber ( i think thats what the equipment is called, some one will be along soon to correct if im wrong), ive had problems finding a garage near me that can do it.

    its not really a job u can do ureself without the proper tools.
