Maximum Motorsports coil over kits

Okay looking into coil overs and see coil over kits from Maximum Motorsports. Not exactly sure what I am looking at hah they appear just to be for the fronts. If any one has went this route could you guide me in what kits and what spring rate for aggressive daily driving I would want to consider. Thanks

I got them from MM. I got both front and rear. For the KONI shocks and struts.

I assume cc plates are the only other purchase I need to make if I pick up the kits?.

You will also want to get your fenders rolled if you go really low.

What other suspension mods do you have?

This is just the beginning. Was looking at shocks, struts, springs, cc plates.ect.
and for not much more could go with coil overs and have adjustability.
Will also be getting lower control arms at the same time and eventually a set of sub frame connectors once I find someone who can weld them in properly.

Subframe connectors should be first

yeah, I hear they make quite a difference!
Unfortunately they are not something I can install myself and I live in a small town and any mechanic in a reasonable distance would probably just be winging the installation. they will be on the list of to do's for sure though.

They are pretty easy. I had help with a friend who can weld. We did them in his garage.

The chassis is extremely bad in these cars. It's more a factor of structural stability and reliability than anything else. Nothing worse than a twisted frame.

what spring rate did you go with?
MM says I will need to buy an additional lower shock mount or a pan hard bar to complete the coil overs.
so the
front kit
rear kit
shocks/struts
cc plates
lower shock mount.

and then lower control arms and sub frame connectors should be next on the list to complete the suspension.

The reason why you need new shock mounts is because your now putting your spring on a spot it wasn't designed to handle that kind of load. Running their Panhard bar on these cars dramatically increases responsiveness and predictability of how the car will react in hard turns. It's also relatively easy to install really took me and a friend a few hours because we wanted to get it spot on.

maybe in the future but another 400 for the pan hard and then the diff cover. that's a bit more then id like to spend rite now hah the coil overs vs springs are already taxing me. but in the future I could always revisit it and get the panhard

The Panhard bar was the most noticeable mod I've done. Even more than the coilovers.

And I run 375# front and 250# rear.
