Coilovers

Im looking into them and i got some questions. Like how easy are they to adjust? How long should they last? And how easy are they to install?

If you can jack a car up and take a tire off you can adjust and install coilovers with ease. Like any suspension piece they wear out over time so it really depends on what you use the car for and how hard you beat the suspension up.

There are plenty of brands of coilovers. To name a few are maximum Motorsports, eibach, SR, Racelands, Bc Racing, KW, and UPR

It's very easy to install if you can change your brakes and remove a strut you can install coilovers.

As far as slamming it your going to need to roll your fenders and make sure you wheels offset doesn't run against the coilover itself and your fender. But you can get away with having a big wheel in the rear and front. Just be aware of which combo you go with

To roll your fenders your gonna need one of these bad boysClick image for larger version

Depends on the kit you get. They can go from $700 to $3,000+.

The coilovers i have in my car are Maximum Motorsport coilover conversions which use KONI shocks and struts as the base. Overall they cost me around $1600 (with camber plates).

And adjusting them is easy. You can get a spanner wrench to adjust them while there is still load on the car... What i do is just jack up the car and place stands under the subframe connectors, that allows the axle, or front control arms (which ever you are doing) to have no load on it, then the coils are free and you can just twist it with your hands (rears i can do with the wheels on the car still).

I know some places you can rent them for like 50$ or buy them for like 100-200$ Not sure where but you'd have to google search it. I just borrowed this from a buddy of mine for next weekend when I have time off to re-roll my fenders
