what are the best coilovers for the G35Coupe?
 
what are the best coilovers for the G35Coupe? ( willing to speed 1000$-1300$)

I'm in the market for either a black or white G35 coupe and would love some opinions as to what some of you think, thanks!

You wont get the best coilovers for the g with that budget. If you mean what are the best you can get for that price range Id suggest Stance, if they even make g coilovers.

JackyJai 09-09-2009 09:38 PM

For $1000~1300 there are very few coilovers you can choose as most of the coilovers cost more than that.
Or you can see if you can find a used set.

Mugen EvOlutioN 09-16-2009 05:34 PM

Why not go with a good strut + spring combo?

+1 that

you can try eibach. They have a entry level coilover that cost just a little over 1 grand. I ll get that over BC and ksport anyday.

Stance also has a entry level coilover in that price range.

I'm of the same opinion. Mine are more than comfortable for day to day driving and when I go to the track and they're tightened up, they keep my car planted quite effectively. :D

The ease of height adjustability is a plus as well.

StealthFighter 09-27-2009 11:54 PM

Yeah, i've heard good things about bc racing. you can slam your car and the ride is pretty good. i'm probably gonna get some bc racing ones.

They seem to be more recommended over megan and tanabe coilovers.

Leopold Stotch 10-04-2009 12:06 AM

the Basic Eibachs are actually KW V1's

nicoclub.com did a great review on the build quality and overall design of bc racing coils...


just remeber you get what you pay for..there is no way a $1000 coilover system can even compare with a 3-4 grand coilover system...

most coilovers below $1000 are the same, and most people have never ridden in a car with a decent set of coils so they really have no comparison...

your infinity should be riding on some nice spring+shocks fyi

if you are tucking 20's or some decent tire and are not going to the track you are just wasting your money.....

Mugen EvOlutioN 10-16-2009 07:56 AM

hearing mix reviews...some ppl say coils arent that great

well at least for entry level, $1000-1500


they are uni-design? meaning they dont actually engineer it for each specific car, just slap on a rough estimate spec and throw it on every car and call it a day?


hence tein SS, many ppl had to rebuild their or after using it for awhile it started to make noise etc, my friends SS has to get it rebuild as well


for that price range is it better just to go with spring and shocks combo?

koni yellow or sth?

yellow is around $900

quiismpon 10-21-2009 12:09 PM

Can I second that? Any help for a beginner would be greatly appreciated.
Whens the next comp? I'm itching to see how I go.

Snaatch 10-29-2009 08:27 AM

KW make a great product.

Adrenaline Rush 10-29-2009 06:24 PM

For the G, it seems that Tokico's are the shock of choice - for some reason, the G community seems to like them better than the Konis (and I really like Konis). If you want a mild lowering and spring rate increase, you could always use 350Z springs too.
