Hey guys, my hsd coilovers just got here from Korea! Way quicker than I expected, just ordered a week ago. I got the monotube type from shark racing. Let me install and review and I'll post all about that. Hopefully, I can get the motivation to install them this weekend. It's a lot of work to do by yourself, but I've done it plenty of times before. I hope this car is easy with no hidden obstacles.
FYI, I contacted a few coilover companies before I ordered hsd (stance, bc racing) and none have plans for this car yet. That is why I decided to go with hsd. I was skeptical as I'd never heard of them. But from what I know, they are the same company that makes (or used to make) stance coilovers, and those I can vouch for any day as I have had two sets of them before, and they were great. Needless to say, I'll write a review, and as usual, no sugar coating. I didn't want to go with springs because it's always hit or miss (usually a miss) as they tend to ride like crap without proper shocks (floaty, bouncy, not tight enough). So for anyone tempted to grab those springs from shark, just keep in mind that if you're looking for a really sporty stance and feel, go with coilovers. They'll allow full adjustment for whatever driving you want to do. And if you just want to lower the car a bit, springs will do it but usually pretty unevenly front and back.
Took some pics of what's arrived. I am really glad to see that the front struts have camber adjustment plates. Also, got an email from hsd confirming that they still do make those stance coilovers as well. As far as the ride quality, well, I am expecting them to be stiff as they are monotube. But I think it will mainly depend on the level of dampening they are set to by the user. You can also swap out the springs with swift springs, I was told.
