Most japanese coilovers tend to use very high spring rates. High sprung doesn't mean bouncy however as any car I've ridden in with a japanese coilover has been suprisingly comfortable (it will be much *MUCH* stiffer than stock) but they doesn't bounce.

I've ridden in a Zeal equipped car with 8kg/mm springs up front and 6kg/mm springs in the rear and it was flat as hell, but too much for the street.

I took a different route. I was keen on Cusco Zero 2R's, but I live where the roads aren't so great, we get snow and I like to play in the dirt every now and again. I opted for DMS 40's (3.2kg/mm springs all around) and it is about as "comfy" as things get. Glad I went this route.

There are many reviews of different suspension setups on this board. I recommend a search on the companies you mention and see what others have experienced.

I've heard may coilovers are stiff. I think DMS 40 is great for everyday use.

I think that most people would say that the best suspension for everyday driving is the Sti/Spt suspension. However if you want a coil-over suspension there is still a great debate.

Thanks for the info. I just want some from people that have these suspensions.
My plan is just to fix it up for carshows.
