    What coilovers e36 vert

    Right been having a look for some coilovers this week for the vert,
    Was originally going to buy cheapo ones from the other forum hot tuning vendor for around 165 but since I've spent a fair bit more money on the car then I thought I would I want to go for something that I can get low with but won't be a solid ride.


    I wanna rely spend 500 or less.
    Been looking at these on eBay any one had any experience with these? Any Input will be helpful

    Did the fks rust at all and wind up and down easily after they been on a while ? Obviously I'd lubricate them often too

    Aren't JOMs supposed to be the best budget coilover? Alternatively HSD DTs can be bought for 520 from Driftworks and will probably be the best for the money (myself and a few others run the more track orientated HSD MPs). That's what I'd get if I had 500ish to spend.

    I had a look at these on drift works before but they don't say how low they go ? Do u know around how many mm they lower by ? I'm not too bothered about too low as I don't want it Inside the floor and I don't think il be able to running z3ms anyways lol!

    This is how low my HSD MPs are set to atm:



    Bare in mind I run 245/40/17 tyres all round so you could go lower. In fact, when I had Style 5s I ran the front lower...



    Can't say how many millimetres though as my car was on lowering springs when I got it.

    The HSD's get a good review. You can get them off DW for 500.

    A buddy showed me some coilovers the other day, I'm trying to find out what the name was again, but they're basically re-branded KW Varients and they are also 500
