Hi there everyone was just wondering what coilover folk would recomend?

Its a ej9 and the car will be used on track very rarely but most of the time as fast road car. And just wondering what people would recomend from past experancies?

Any help welcome.

I have D2's no issues great budget coilovers, my brother now has the BC coilovers.... Not much in it but the BC's build quality is far supirior.

If i was buying again it'll be BC hands down.

BC's everytime they are made by the same factory and to the same design as apexi coilovers were, and give a much nicer ride than the D2's.

Ive used D2's in the past and wasnt happy with them tbh, the dampers were way to harsh and over damped and the spring rates way to high.

Try giving Jerrick at MeisterR a call I have a few customers all using MeisterR and all are very happy, the build quality is great for the money.

Our sales on D2's dropped last year because of the leaky issue they had. This has now been fixed according to D2 and I havn't had any returns on them with the new set up.

Having said that BC Br Racing coilovers are selling really good. Sold many sets to members on here and they are all very impressed with them. I can't find any faults in them for the money they are well worth it.

A lot of people really seem to rate the MeisterR Coilovers. I think that will be the route I take with my EK9. When I was building my EF8 a few years ago I had an original set of D2's for it. Unfortunately, I never got a chance to finish the build and try out the suspension but build quality seemed pretty good for a budget level coilover. Cant really comment on the BC's either, but by reading user comments on various forums they seem to get the thumbs up too.

Choices, choices - whatever you choose, please be sure to write up a review to help others out in the future.

For brand new budget coilovers of 2009, Its all about the MeisterR & BC coilovers. Noone buys D2/Ksport anymore, the are so 2002.
Alternatively, the same price can buy you second hand JDM coilovers

Hi Mark, Its Daz from DNR, we collected your EF and delivered to London for the new buyer. Got your self a new toy? Hope your well any way chap.

I rate the Meister R very highly for the money and the customer service is 2nd to none.

Would just like to say thanks for the great feedback from everyone.

After hearing a good few bad reviews in the D2's i think im going to eather stray towards the BC racing or the Meister R coilovers.

Once i have bought a set after fully making my mind up i will post on how they handle.

Many thanks again everyone.
