I can't get myself to fork out almost R12000 for 4 dampers.
Is it really worth that much or is there something I'm missing.

Just need a more comfortable ride without the "crashyness".

Get B12 i think itvwill be cheaper, else just get coilies, mated shick to ride height and solve that rear arch issue you have

+1 what Guili said...

XYZ coil-overs cost R10500 - they built shocks for the WTCC 156 racers. They are damp rate and height adjustable

I've got Bilsteins at the moment with OEM springs.
I'm thinking like R6k for a damper that will eliminate the crashyness?

Yes fit a set of eibachs you can even have your current shock re valves to change its response

STR Ts are just as good and half the price. you dont need to adjust shocks unless your doing track

My car has 3 Eibach dampers and 1 OEM. I think the front left maybe had an issue with the previous owner and they replaced it with an OEM. So I need to change the dampers. And I need a damper that will soak up the bumps. Whether it's coil overs or just dampers.

I believe the ride comfort is dependent on the damper and not so much the spring?

TN: How do you change the damper's response? And will this soften it up a little?

The Koni STR T's will lower it by 30mm. I'm happy with the height, as the bumper in the front is scraping to much already, so I don't think I'll go with the STR's

the shocks wont lower, the springs will. a Koni spring and shock combo will set you back about 8500. the yellows and the STRTs are not far apart with the difference being the yellows are able to adjust dampening.. overkill i think on a street car

What springs are there that will work well with the Koni's and not reduce ride height while improving ride quality?
