Summer Time = Suspension

OK.
I need suspension.
Been doing my research for like 5 months.
Found that TRD suspension is ok, but there are better things out there.
And Hotchiks and Tokicos are the more popular and everyone seems to be pleased with them.

My driving style is some-what agressive.
Actually driving can be really agressive at times, but it's not like i running from the cops all the time. You know, just have your fun sometimes when you find a small courses.
I plan on seeing the track a couple of times this year and need something that will be able to keep me on the ground, but doesnt have to be the best. I don't plan on being at the track all the time, but need something that gets the job done along with daily driving.

Probabaly will be getting a body kit later in the year and try to avoid being lower than 1.5 inches.

So do i really need to get coilovers? or just go plan and basic with a regular setup, but quality products.

coilovers..unless its the whole kit from TRD. other than that i wont vouch for anyother ones. on my '00 GTS i have Eibach prokit with Eibach struts. and they handle real well. Tokico's are good for the money as well as TEIN. Hotchkis awsome if you have the money.

I like my set-up, hotchkis street sways, RM front strut bar, hypermotive rear 3pt bar, tein s-techs (1.5" drop), and soon to have kyb agx. Handles very nice, if you are going to go to the track, you could swap out the streets for the comps, this would give your car a little more oversteer, mine has a very neutral feel to it with the current set-up. anything is better then the amount of understeer the car produces stock.

springs: tein s-tech (1.4" drop all around)
shocks: tokico hp (u could also just get the whole tokico suspension set up and that should be an excellent set-up)
sways: hotchkis
strut bar: to many to pick from, tanabe is what i have, apr is good from what i hear...

You do realize that if you get into coilovers that you are in a different class when it comes to track days?? ...Didnt matter to me smile
