This whole subject is a bit of a nightmare. Everyone have their own opinions on what is best.
I used to have fsd's and eibach springs on my old GT. And to be fair they were a really good compromise in handling and comfort. Still not perfect, but so much better than the oem setup, which even on my fresh 30k clover is bloody awful and fidgety.
I had a set of brand new bilstein pss9's on my last car and had a hell of a time with them..They needed refurbishing after 20k they became noisy. And even on softest setting were no where close to the comfort of a decent spring and shock set up. So making a decision on my new clover has never been harder.
OperationAlfa kindly replied to my pm about his Z9 coils. And they seem a great kit with shock and spring levels of comfort.
I have also read great reviews on the kw sport spring and shock kit. But i cannot seem to see it listed for the 1.9jtd on the kw website just their v1 +v2 coilovers.
To be fair after the experience with my fsd/eibach setup with eibach ARB's, i don't honestly think you would want to go any lower for fast road, which makes the idea of coils a bit redundant.
Yet the price of the Z9 coils are very competitive and close to a decent shock and spring setup? Plus they are damper rate adjustable? Plus if i decide to take some dead weight out the back of my clover eg..back seats..I could readjust the height of the car with a set of coils.
Little bit of an update, just had a confirmation email from KW that they still have the sport kit for the jtd. Its now just under £600 delivered. So only 300 difference for a set of Z9 coils.hmm.
