I've looked at many review threads of suspension and thought it would be a good idea to try and compile a list of what everyone is running in hopes to help others like myself who are looking to upgrade make an educated choice. I would like this be be as unbiased as possible so please fill in the form as complete as possible.

Copy and paste the quote into your post please


What brand and model coilover or cupkit----

What was your stock suspension (sport/non-sport)----

If you upgraded from non-OEM kit, what was it and why the change---

Are you slammed or lowered---

To help keep this non biased did you change out from OEM suspension that was worn out.(Meaning any new suspension is going to feel amazing)---

On a scale 1-5, 5 being the best/most/easiest 1 being the worst/least/hardest please identify each question

Stiffness of ride---

Bouncy(1 being less bouncy 5 being very bouncing)---

Quality of ride overall compared to stock---

If adjustable, ease of adjustment---

Reliability of components---

Are you satisfied with your purchase---

Interior rattles---

Does your wife/girlfriend/significant other complain about the height or ride quality or that the car has too many rattles now (ask them now)---




Well that's it. Please try not to keep this short and sweet; I realize there are a few questions there. Also if there is another question you may have that isn't answered via the list above please let me know and I will add it. Thanks for those who participate, and I hope people fill this out.

If at all possible please post a side shot of your car to show the height. Please try to keep the pics from being to large and try to post quality photos.
