Depends how much you want to spend, good coilovers are well in excess of $1000 where as springs are like $350 for king springs.

I had SSL king springs in my r32 gts which were really really stiff, the ride quality was very poor and i clenched every time i saw a bump in the road. In my A4 i have Koni fully adjustable coilovers which are brilliant but cost me an arm and a leg.

I would always recommend coil overs as you can adjust the damper and the ride height, but dont go for cheap knock offs and they will sh** themselves very quickly. :thumbsup:

Unless u want/need adjustability stay clear of coilovers. Get a nicely natched shock an spring.

I had nismo struts n springs in my r32 and they were amazing comfortable and very little body roll with great bounce elimination

my r33 has aftermarket full height shocks and springs and they are much the same but roll a bit more than the 32. Im unsure on the brand unfortunately.

    • TCU is enroute, should be here on Monday. Have just paid for a transmission locally, they've got to pull it out of the car and should be with me on Friday. Just getting little bits and pieces I need for wiring. Thinking about using a small bulkhead connector to run the transmission wiring through the tunnel as the trans plug is quite big.  So all going well i should have the box dummy fitted up next weekend and start wiring.
    • sure, just PM me your email....
    • Haha likewise, take my shit box for a spin and maybe you'll end up wanting a R33 shit box again lol...  
    • @Jasoncauser looks like a tight technical track, and definitely fun! Let's hope I make it to that day 😎  
    • The springs just lets the valve bleed off pressure/oil and it bypasses the feed gallery and heads back to where the pickup feed is On the LS the oil gets the the bearings...eventually  This vid explains the OEM pump well IRT the pressure release valve and how the bypass works The oil pressure light coming on intamitantly could just be a sticky valve, but, why pull something apart and not put something better in  I believe the low oil pressure light comes on somewhere between 5-10 psi Well will stick a gauge in after the installation to see what difference it makes at hot idle and higher RPM, and by high RPM I mean 6300 RPM.....LOL
