Guys looking to replaced all of my of my shocks and struts since my car drives like crap. I would like to replaced with teins basic damper coils because I don't use my car for racing just everyday driving and i would like to adjust the ride height of my vehicle and hopefully put 20 inch X 9 rims on my vehicle. Is it worth the money?

Coilovers aren't for everyone, best idea is to ride in a max with coilovers, if you can't get that chance then just go for it,
I had coils on my maxima (Megan racing)
And currently have coilovers on my 350z and I loveeeee them I have the adjusted perfectly, but I've heard really good reviews about bc racing coilovers so I would go with those if I were you, but maybe you can let others chime in and help you out

Hey this question has been asked a trillion times but Im in a good mood so Ill answer it based on my knowledge. If you're the type that wants a smooth ride, coil-overs are not for you. A set of KYB GR2 shocks paired with some Progress springs would be a better choice. Another question to ask yourself, how are the roads in the area you frequent? If smooth then coil-overs would work as far as that aspect goes. Then it comes down to you. If you don't mind a little bumpy car then go for it. Like my friend explained Tein makes awesome products and if you have the cash, go for it. The BCs are awesome too for under a grand.

Questions to ask yourself before purchasing coil-overs:

1. Do I want a smooth ride or a little bumpy is ok?
2. Does it matter if I can adjust or not?
3. Is price a Factor?
4. Are roads smooth where I drive?

At least that's what I would ask myself if purchasing coil-overs.
