  • WTB: GC coilovers

    I am looking to buy a used or new ground control coil over suspension.

    don't know what you are looking to spend, but a new set only costs about 400.00 direct from gc and you can pick your spring rates and lengths.

      a coil over suspension costs about 1500 on the gc website. Am I mistaken? Where are you seeing 400?

        I went with springs and adjusters. I am running them with bilsteins.

          I am thinking of selling my TCKline coilovers. I would need your strut housing in exchange though.

            Springs and threaded adjusters are about $375.
            Camber plates are $375.00 too
            Total would be $750 if you already have decent shocks.

              Just remember that if you get into the higher spring rates you will blow your stock shocks very quickly. I run 700/575 and sport bilsteins and Koni adjustable shocks didn't last long. I ended up running the Turner J Stock Bilstein shock setup now. An excellant improvement.

                another company worth a look is bc coilovers. there are a couple threads on e30tech about them in the suspension section. complete set is about a thousand with struts, camberplates, springs and adjusters. i don't have any experience with them but the thread makes them sound good.

                  Your are confusing with using stiff shocks on soft springs.

                  The "soft" shocks and too stiff springs won't fully control them. Nothing more. They won't "blow". But a soft spring will allow a lot of up and down travel, which will force oil thru shock valving at a rate not intended. Not only the ride will be very uncomfortable, but the wear will be pretty fast, including the risk of blowing them. ;-)

                    I'm running h&r race with bilstein sport shocks, are the sport shocks enough to just buy new gc springs?
