Ok, so I'm looking to finally get rid of the wheel gap. Ideally, I'd like to get some coilovers, but am having a hard time deciding. I'm not looking for super performance, rather, just something that looks good and rides as smooth as possible. To be honest, I don't drive my car hard or ever planning on take it on a track. Its the looks and the smooth ride I'm looking for and trying to keep the price reasonable.
That said, does anyone have experience with JOM? FK? Raceland?
Any recommendations?

The big thing I've been seeing around vortex (and a little on here) as well as just purchased myself are ST Coilovers. There are a few group-buys going around for $699 shipped and MANY people have and love them. They're perfect for what you're asking as you can slam them or keep them high. People say the ride is pretty smooth as well. While you can track on them it would probably be better to get more damping adjustable ones but since this isn't what you plan on using them for you don't need to worry about that. I can comment too much on how accurate all this is because mine are in a box for another week, however, with the volume of positive posts about them I'm sure I'll be satisfied when I get them on.

Edit: oh and if you call up HPA motorsports they have a group buy going still (I think) and they're located in canada as yourself according to your profile. You should be able to save some international payment fees or whatnot.

kw v1

STs are EXACTLY KW v1s except the shocks are made of plated steel instead of stainless steel. Uses the same spring and shock intervals.


For ST group buy prices: you check here: http://forums.fourtitude.com/showthread.php?5213057-ST-Coilovers-at-HPA-Motorsports

I'm pretty sure it's still going but has been for a few weeks so could end any day now. $699 shipped.

If you will spend little or no time on the track then, go with StaSIS SS. That and upgraded sways and you are good to go.
