I've had my fair share of experiences with different suspension setups and I know the headaches of trying to figure out which one is worth your well-earned money and time. We always say you get what you pay for, but is that always the case?

I tested out a set of $800 coilovers to see whether or not they're worth it.

Have you guys had experiences with cheaper coilovers on the market?

I plan on watching this later today, but from previous experiences, it is well worth the extra money to get a set of coilovers that were specifically valve'd and spring'd for that application and your goals (street car vs track car). With suspension and ride quality, a "one size fits all" approach isn't the answer. However, I do understand budget is a big factor in that decision, so if you want low and are limited financially, i think cheaper coils are worth it.

It's all preference and budget in my opinion. Looking forward to watching. Thanks for all the good vids!

Even though not for the track, would be interesting to benchmark vs. stock.

This set looks like a good cost savings / budget friendly set of coils. Good review. Would be interested to hear how they are with a softer damper setting. I would use a very soft setting for daily driving with my S.O. to improve ride quality and harshness.
