Thanks for the info. I am very happy with megan so I would like to stick with them. Would you happed to know the specs on the coil overs for the evo?VIPGarage said:we run these coilovers on just about every car you can think of and they have never once let us down. We have installed them on EVO's, DSM, WRX, 240sx and MR2 and they always deliver. great for daily yet adjustable enough to be descent track coilovers too.
these are a terrific value.
Thank's I plan on buying them withing a few weeks.VIPGarage said:if you mean spring rates it is 8kg in the front and 6kg in the rear. We have actually mixed them up a bit and used different springs for people that wanted something more aggressive. for example we had on customer ask for a 12kg Front and 12kg Rear configuration.
the 8/6 setup works awesome though. We like them a lot.
What if your not a serious tracker but like to drive hard and like to enjoy the car what spring rate do you recommend? I am going to try the stock suspension for a while and later on move to something better. I am going to try to autox too and this weekend will be my first training course in waterbury, ct 45 bucks to join.ldstang50 said:Also, for those of you that do SERIOUS track days, you should know the evo likes to understeer. To compensate this in suspension you usually would add negative camber up front and possible a toe out in the rear. When it comes to spring rates and shock settings, to get better rear rotation you want a stiffer rear than front.
My point is, if you are hardcore about racing, you want the rear springs to be stiffer than the fronts. If you can I'd opt for a 6/8 set up for 7/9. 12kg seems a bit overkill to me

For daily driving purposes and the occasional track day or auto-x I would go with the 6/8 set up. The ride will be stiffer than stock but not hard enough to rattle your teeth out on the street. The rear set up will be stiff enough to allow for a better handling car than stock.
And I am a witness to this being a fact.ldstang50 said:when was the last time you were at an auto-x or road course? last time I checked it was never. unless something as happened in the last month I talked to you.
I know you run these coilovers and dont' doubt your input on the street, but please dont' talk about track events when you have never been
