Coilovers/shock spring kits

Hey all

I realise there are a few trheads regarding this topic, but my search has not really come up with answers I am looking for!

Basically I need to stiffen up the front of my 156, I have a downpipe on mine which sits somewhat lower then normal and I cant drive anywhere for fear of scraping it

so which kits have you guys chosen and which kits do you think are the best and why?

I would like to have some sort of adjustability in damping but at the same time do not want to pay over the top!

Re: Coilovers/shock spring kits

can't always have it both ways. the ideal setup for you is probably a coilover set, with adjustable rideheight and adjustable dampers; say the novitec or KW.v2. coilovers tend to use stiffer springs, and you can avoid lowering the car.

but they are relatively expensive.

most (well, 'all' that i know of) aftermarket spring kits that work with conventional dampers will lower the car - not ideal for you.

an option you may wish to explore is having a custom set of springs make, that are stiffer, but won't lower your car. you'd need to see a suspension specialist for this. you won't want to change only the front springs obviously, but go for a matched set of fronts and rears which won't adversely alter the overall handling of the car.
