Hey guys! Might seem like a stupid question but I'm looking to upgrade my suspension soon so I'm just wondering what's the best suspension for a comfy ride? But one that can also be lowered to a nice height?
Anybody know if daiyima are any good? Cheers guys!

ive had hks hypermax coilovers on three of my altezza`s and they have been pretty comfy.
i had tein monoflex coilovers on my first one and they were a lot softer.
and i`ve also had trd shock absorbers with tein s-tech lowering springs which were by far the most comfortable and smoothest but they were only 40mm lower.

k-sport and d2 coilovers seem to be massively over damped so they bang and rattle.
bc coilovers are pretty much the same.
hsd`s are good on everything else so i can`t see why they would be different on an altezza.
meister r`s are very comfy and go low as well.

with an aftermarket coilover on a lowered car it will never be as smooth as factory suspension as there is less space for the shocks to be absorbed so they will have a higher spring rate to make up for it.

I've got Meister r's and they seem pretty good! Not bone shattering hard and go nice and low!

Can't comment on other brands though
