Hi guys

I have a 2008 GSR

I have 2 small children age 3 and 4 who are basicly always in the car with me, but i want to lower my car abit with a coiloverkit

I want the car lowered approx 3-4 cm but i dont want it to be stiff/hard as i dont want my kids to suffer from kidneydamage:innocent:

Can anyone recommend a good coiloverbrand ? Previously i've used Tein Superstreet on my Evo VI TME

I was also recommended to check out www.driftworks.com , anyone have experience with them?

Cheers

anything you'll find from a vendor or extremepsi will have soft, streetable rates.

when i said pretty much all off the shelf coilovers, i really meant pretty much all.....unless you buy something specifically made for the track that recommends running r compound in conjunction with the coilovers.

Spring rates AND valving are going to impact how the ride feels. I was dead set on coils and bought them. Now I'm on a set of swift springs. Reason being that for me, the loss of comfort wasn't worth the performance gain since I don't track it.

Soft and coilovers in the same sentence is somewhat oxymoronic.

How does your car look when lowered with springs? Im only looking for a maximum 3-4cm lowering, Tein springs lower it 1inch ( 2,54 cm )

I want it to be close to the wheel, but not overdoing it

Fortune Auto Coilovers allow for custom spring rates and custom valving so you can essentially custom build them to your specifications. IE; Street spec valving and whatever spring rate you choose. They're AMAZING coils, shoot me a PM if you're interested :)
