Im really really needing coilovers because im trying to go AS LOW as i can. Im on clamped springs right now,went the cheap way since KFX is charging hella money for the coilover kit. Im thinking about going h&r springs and just clamping those as much as i can to have a temporary low. Has anybody even bought coilovers and installed them on a MC yet? I've always wondered how did they feel and how low did they allow you to go?

There are numerous spring manufacturers that could provide you with custom one-off springs. It'll cost you more that a set of lowering springs but less than the KFX coilovers.

http://www.coilsprings.co.uk/ does this kind of work. Custom drop with custom stiffness. You'll be going through shocks in no time though. You have to call them.

i have the SMA Coilovers, its a Korean manufacture. Those Coilovers are really good for lowering your car, currently im usingt them for Autocross and they are working just fine. I still have some dive in in the front, but if you are not going to use it for AutoX, then you dont need to wrry about it.

I know right, that KFX have some coilovers in stock, not the sma but other manufacture that he is looking a person to test fit it. If you have the money, you should contact him.

well actually is not for test fitting, the problem with this one is that the top part of the struts, where the bolts goes its a different size than our cars. this Coilovers will fit the Kia Pride, which is from overseas. Unfortunally for you i just decided to take this baby home and test it, swapping the top part of the strut and came up with a possible solution to it. The good news is, once i get a solution for this you guys will be able to buy this coilovers cheaper than the SMA coilovers.

Actually, it appears the issue is with the cap that fits on top of the new coilovers, It appears, 2 bolts are off by 2 mm each. Could be as simple as drilling out the holes on top

if you want to send me a set ill test fit them and document the install with pictures and step by step directions......... :whistling:
and i aint scared to use power tools! :grin: (had to "rework" the mounting hole in my wagon and the pulsar to get the GTI-R Tein Coilovers to fit)
