Title: Suspension Advice?
PCSnob - February 14, 2011 10:38 AM (GMT)
On my last warrant of fitness, it was mentioned to me that my front suspension was starting to leak.
I guess that means its time to get some aftermarket ones :lol:
Anyway, what would people around here recommend. Also any places you can recommend to have them installed, with slightly lower than stock height?
Thanks very much for all the future advice.

TRD Sportivo shocks! Few members run it :)
Just remember with adjustable coilovers, you will need a LVV cert to go with so factor in another $500+!

There's a couple of bargains on Trade-me, depending if you're wanting to invest in some new ones or try find some decent second hand coil-overs.HKS AdjustablesTRD Adjustables
Most of them come with damper adjustment, so you can fine tune the suspension setup to how you like it, nice and firm or comfortable.

There has been a few discussions on different coilovers that might help you decide...Coilovers, ReccomendationsSpring Rates
Hope that helps

|with slightly lower than stock height?|
That always makes Konis worthwhile, as they have a series of grooves that the spring base sits on. You can keep the stock springs, they just get mounted lower according to whichever groove you use..
I used the Koni adjustable sports shocks.

I had TRD Sportivo in my silver car... They were nice, good height, handled well... The black is on TEIN superlow springs, am keen on new shocks though....

Thanks everyone for the input. Keep them coming :lol:
I will look into a few of the suggestions made here.
And yeah I am taking the LVV cost into account, but thanks for the heads up anyway :)

I've got TRD shocks and springs on mine, the difference to the stocks is amazing. no more wobble, handles great and predictable + a neat 3-odd cm drop. Plus you don't need a certification.
