    Best Coilovers

    As the title says, what do people recommend for coilovers? Old shocks are on their way out so wanting to upgrade, the Supe is and will be my daily driver so donít really need some fancy track set up.
    Cheers

    Just done this last week, already have Bilsteins, but have now finally added the new Eibach springs from Paul Whiffin. The ride is nice and comfortable, not to hard, but really handles well when pushing the car hard in the twisties for a bit of fun

    I've got yellow Toyota Bilsteins on mine already, would they be the same as those?

    Wonder if many came with them as stock.

    I upgraded to Toyota yellow bilsteins way back in 2006/7, and that's what I still have on now with the eibachs.

    The B6 bilsteins are supposed to be a bit better that the toyota yellow bilsteins. They apprantly have better valving, and Chris Wilson can also modify them for his suspension setup. He would know the differences I'm sure

    I took bilsteins off in favour of Meister R GT-1's. I absolutely love them, 3rd set of meister R's so far and they are excellent.

    Because I've had 3 different cars and I buy each car a set of them before I do anything else. I've had two pairs of Meister R Europas and I went for the GT1 on the Supra.
