Just like the subject, what are the best performance coilovers with the best ride quality and still faily affordable( dont have to be cheap but also cant be $2000)? Im still deciding on springs and shocks or coilovers for christmas so please help me out.

I like the h & r shocks with koni yellows ....but i dont know if i would benifit more from coilovers? What do u think if i wanted the most performance possible but still fairly good ride quality.?

He said under $2,000. So Zeal B6's might go out of the category. If not,

Zeal S6's.

Eddie, my install did not affect any of the sensors. Are you talking about the wires going to the sensors?

All coilovers are good.. in a sense. They allow for a lot more control and ajustment of your car if you where to have just springs and shocks.

It all comes down to what you want out of them. I have the Tein RAs and I really like how the car drives with the very high spring rates. Other might hate it.

So figure out what you want your car to do 1st, then making a decision of what suspension stuff to buy will be easy.

you kno the part that is bolted on to the shock when it is stock, my old jics and the new zeals did not have anything to bolt it onto, when i took a look at a pair of tiens they had the place to bolt it on to, you kno what i mean?

Now I know what you mean. Actually I used zip ties to secure it to the lower casing of the coilover to prevent it from moving around. What did you do?

I used zipties w/ my JICs. I have the JIC-FLT A2s, they're pretty damn impressive. I have them set the stiffest both front and rears... handles like a champ and ride's not too harsh at all.
