Coil overs

AM just came out with the SR coil overs for $750. Seemed like a good deal when compared to buying shocks, struts, and springs. Would these be a good investment for coil overs. Or should they be avoided?

I think you'll get enough bang for your buck. SR has come out with quite a few products that have pretty good quality. I'd check out some customer reviews. Too bad I I changed my shocks/struts just yesterday:/ lol

I would look at reviews but sadly I can't find any on any website. I was just questioning their quality with them being about half the price of eibach ones.

And what about the qa1 coil overs. They are just for the front so what do you put in the rear?

I've got to say that I'm quite curious about these. Being an SR brand product does cause me to hesitate a bit. I wouldn't buy them until some real reviews come out

That's why I posted. I was hoping someone had installed them.

They look like a knock off or the KW brand coil-overs

I've never heard of those. Are they good? And what are you supposed to do with the qa1 coil overs since they only come with the front pair

The KW's are pretty damn expensive, but I haven't researched them because I want the Maximum Motorsports coil-overs. The QA1s are for drag racing and most guys usually pair them up with drag shocks and springs in the rear

What's your goal for the coil-overs? Do you plan on racing or anything like that?

Not in the near future, if ever. I was looking at basic shocks, struts and springs but saw the SR and just started looking at them.

Ah ok. For the price those coil-overs aren't bad and they allow for the adjustable ride height so that's always nice. If you're looking to lower the car I would just do springs and shocks. I have a feeling the SR COs would be kid of loud going very bumps and stuff like that

That's the type of stuff I'm curious about. Someone needs to be a guinea pig. The reason I want the adjustable height is so if/when long tube headers are put on I can get rid of any scraping that might occur. Silly reason but its semi-practical.

And when bigger wheels happen I can modify the gap and make the stance look stronger. It's a good idea, but not if the suspension is crap. So we might just have to wait for someone to review the SR

That would be the best idea. My car doesn't look very low because my wheels are so small. 18s+ 1.5" drop looks pretty damn sexy

I love my FR500s. If I had to pick something else it would probably be 10th Anniversary Cobras

My vote is either chrome or silver. Or I saw one where they were painted gold and it looked great

And for coilovers idk if I would get them just yet let the first few go out and then reviews and after think about it

Seems like a unanimous vote on the coil overs. AM just got some in stock today so maybe reviews will start coming in.

I'm glad to see all of the interest in the new SR Performance coil-overs! We're glad to finally be able to bring these aboard to our site too. Knowing the quality of SR, I have no doubt these coil-overs will perform very well one the street and track.

I know it's only a matter of time until we'll be installing these SR coil-overs into one of our project cars. Then we'll be able to give you guys the full run-down on their performance, comfort and adjustment functionality!

I love AM but if you are serious about suspension you want to get everything the same brand since they are designed to work together. I'm going with Griggs Racing because they don't just change suspension components, they reengineer them completely. Every piece of their suspension is meant to work with each other specifically. Especially coilovers are something you want to get matched to the rest of your suspension.
