Suspension Recomendations

Postby ManxTezza » Fri Jul 12, 2013 3:38 pm

Hello

Got a 1999 Altezza about 3 weeks ago. I have been looking for some suspension for it but i am not sure what would be suitable. Can anyone advise me on a good choice?

Thanks

Depends what you are after really, and what you use the car for.

I have been lookin around at various brands. The kit that has caught my attention is the Koni SPORT kit. Can anyone recommend this or tell me what it is suitable for?

10-20 min

Got trd shocks and springs and find them good, had coilovers on my last car and just way too hard, actually lost traction as they were too hard to keep tyres in contact with the road
if you get coilovers some places do provide custom spring rates which I would go for near to sports suspension as possible and just make sure they got a good dampening adjustment so you can make car softer or harder for your comfort or use as and when needed
