Purchasing Coilovers After Christmas....

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

Just wondered if anybody could help me with some questions regarding coilovers on a Corolla T-Sport?

I have been trauling the 'net countlessly since I purchased the car a couple of weeks ago, as I feel the 2003 version I have is stupidly high :(

I have only found a handful of options. My favourites out of the few I have found are:

- http://www.dcperformance.co.uk/cheap/247653/toyota/fk-silverline-coilovers/fkxty12.html or,

- http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/D2-Coilovers-Toyota-Corolla-ALL-ZZE130L-03-UP-/330503530499?pt=UK_CarsParts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM&hash=item4cf38ba803

I was just wondering which ones I should go for? If not any of them, any ideas on where I could get alternatives? Are they any good etc?

Thanks,

Karl

Thanks for the comments guys, was good to get some feedback on these, as I found the D2's on EBAY, and was unsure of the quality....

I'm now wondering whether if there's any point of me having coilovers?! As I won't be a full out track user, be changing my ride height much (if any at all, once I've lowered it) etc, so was thinking of going down the spring options now.

I've found some H&R 45mm lowering springs for £170, and was wondering if it was worth it? As I just prodominantly just want the arch gap smaller!

Bridges use to have the 45mm H&R springs I believe and he liked them so best bet is let him see this thread he's always willing to help.

Waaaaaaas up :)

Aye I did have H&R and they are a great piece of kit for the money. Your best bet to get them cheaper is search Germanys eBay, takes a bit of time searching for the correct springs but they are on there.

Are you 16" or running bigger rims? On the FL the car was looooow on 16" so watch those curbs.

Let me kno if you want more info :thumbsup:
