Alright, I would really appreciate it if we could get all of these loose coilover Q&A's stuffed into one thread. I have read all of the recent posts about suspension and it seems that few of our issues have been totally relieved.

Personally I would appreciate some feedback from the CO owners in here on brands you are using and some feedback on their performance and ride quality. H&R, Koni, B&G, KW, Stasis and their differences. I also have specific questions on what exactly dampening is and which coilovers allow you to adjust this as well as ride height, on and off the car. Use on track/street?

TIA

i have h & r and i love them, no problems so far. sometimes i hear a weird bumping noise in my right rear one but from what i heard im not the only one. so i think its comon they do that. others might do the same. i know my freind has this problem on his wrx and he is running a complete different brand.

We should have a mod/parts page, w/ "Official" Specs/directions, would avoid all the loose and repetitive threads, updates could be done to them if anything changes, thats my 2c's

It would be nice if people started using the AW Part Reviews section. Maybe AZ can make something similar if people made a habit of posting reviews it would be extrememly helpful

Sounds like a little temperance here [;)] . I agree that beating subjects to a pulp is annoying, but still a lot of our concerns rarely get fully addressed. Plus there are quite a few dudes who only use AZ and don't mess with AW. I personally like the format better here.

the reviews section is entirely seperate from their forum software (link (http://www.audiworld.com/reviews/)). And no matter how you feel about software (i love it, personally), the amount of information held in their forum archives outweighs any short-comings you feel the site has.

Aw that is cool. Never seen that but guess it would help. Still new info and feedback here would not hurt.

Coilover setups are adjustable, so many people may have them set at different heights, depending on preference.

for the price of those (nearly $2k retail) why not just go with a set of STaSIS Track Sports?
