Coilovers.

What are the best coilover system. I want the best coilover that money could buy, with the most comfortable ride and handling. Also looking into a set of swaybars.

Re: Coilovers.

Look at some KW V3's or Eibach R2 Multi Pro or Custom Moton's.

Any system that has dampening and rebound controls separate should be easy to tweak for comfort or max performance. Your spring selection will be limited if you want a plush ride though.

Handling is like night and day. It's awesome and you can adjust it so
It feels close to stock. Soften the dampening and it's just like a stock suspension. Or crank it up and it's stiffer then a 18 yr old in the morning! Lol

I'm considering them, but I think the exact same kit (at least equivalent) from Ford Racing or eibach are both cheaper for similar components.
