    ISO Coilover Suggestions

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    Wondering what everyone is running on their B8.5 for suspension? I've been doing research for awhile now and can't seem to find the right set up I want to pull the trigger on. Obviously the PSS10's are on my radar but not really wanting to spend 2.5k on coilovers. I looked into H&R streets but I've heard a lot of mixed reviews on them. Seems like half hate them and the other half love them. The V1's and V2's seem like a solid option considering they are stainless steel and I live Ohio where roads get hit with salt. I don't intend on tracking my car. I mostly just want about a 1.5-2 inch drop, comparable to stock comfort, and eliminate body roll for spirited driving. Any real life experience/set up recommendations would be greatly appreciated

    KW HAS because I dont plan on tracling but wantrd adjustability to dial in height. Happy with ride quality. Stiffer than stock, occasionally bumpy but not horrendous. Cheap and quick install.

    I've been happy with the H&R streets. No complaints after three years of daily use in all types of weather. Stock like ride comfort, plenty of drop, and improved handling as well.

    If I was going to get coilovers I'd probably look into Broadway Static with the Swift spring upgrade. They're worth the upgrade imo

    Really @ the Solowerks?? I had them on my B6 and thought they weren't great after 10k tbh. For the price point I agree that they were ok, but I don't want to skimp on my B8.5 since I do plan on keeping this car for a long time.
