ISC coilovers?? Any Good??
 
I saw these coilovers for 1200 on Bavarian Autosport wondering if anyone here has em' or knows anything good or bad about them since they're pretty cheap.

what do you plan to use the car for?

Daily?
Track often?

Titansilber98M3 05-12-2012 12:13 AM

Daily and occasional twisty mountain runs.

n0n0perational 05-14-2012 04:51 PM

why do you need all the adjustments for daily?

Titansilber98M3 05-15-2012 03:13 PM

Well I want a good drop and my car is over 100k so it's due for struts and shocks and also my front camber is off and since there's no adjustment I need to get camber plates. I also am planning a few track days in the near future. After adding all of that up coilovers seemed like a better solution and then I would have height adjustability if I wanted to go back up at any time.

i'd agree coilovers are a good solution but id go with something that has a better reputation....you're going to have to rely and live with the purchase day after day so i wouldn't go for just any brand. Pick something with a good reputation and a good warranty.

Titansilber98M3 05-16-2012 04:29 PM

Alright I figured a big name would be the best way to go just wondering if anyone had tried them. Any suggestions for being on a budget??

n0n0perational 05-17-2012 01:57 PM

what kind of budget do you have? and how soon are you looking to purchase?

ECSTuning 05-18-2012 09:13 AM

Personally I love having adjustable damping, being able to go from stiff on the fun day track day weekends to softer for daily driving is one of those things that just puts a smile on my face. With your thought of budget friendly in mind I'd suggest a set of FK Konigsports. They utilize track and street proven Koni adjustable dampers, and FKs great springs and levels. You can check them out HERE.

No more than 1500 definitely, the less I have to spend the better. I'm trying to buy ASAP due to the insides off my front tires. That konigsport kit looks great but there doesn't seem to be any alignment adjustability which is one of the main things I need

Hey guys, from what i heard Megan Racing coilovers are pretty good also. Check them out!

ECS tuning what's the spring width of the FK's so i know what size camber plates to run.

ECSTuning 07-13-2012 07:59 AM

The outside diameter of the front spring is right around 86mm

Titansilber98M3 07-13-2012 10:23 PM

Vorshlag gives the option for 2.25 in 2.5 in and 60mm for coilovers do you know which ones are compatible with the fk's? Or any other camber/caster plates that people run with the fk's?

ECSTuning 07-16-2012 07:14 AM

I've had a few guys successfully run the UUC camber plates in the past on the Fk coilovers.

Titansilber98M3 07-17-2012 09:56 PM

Have any idea which Vorshlag plates fit I really wanna run with those on the fk's they show 2.25 in 2.5 in and 60mm I'm not sure where that measurement takes place though

ECSTuning 07-18-2012 07:15 AM

I do not have info on the Vorshlag plates in my notes. If you can find out where they are measured from I can run in the back and measure the coils for you.

Titansilber98M3 07-22-2012 12:38 AM

They say that the measurement is from the inside of the spring

Titansilber98M3 07-22-2012 12:40 AM

And they also say the strut style matters as well there's an option for koni square and koni tapered I'm not sure how you would be able to tell that though

ECSTuning 07-23-2012 11:54 AM

Just got out of the warehouse, they are just shy of two and a half inches internal diameter at the top of the spring.

As for the front struts, pretty sure they are squared by Vorshlags standards.

Titansilber98M3 07-23-2012 10:26 PM

Ok thanks a lot! I'll put in my order for some FK's soon

Titansilber98M3 08-04-2012 10:07 AM

Ok vorshlag showed me exactly what needs to be measured in an email. Do you have an email address so I can forward the message to you? I already ordered the coils just wanted to make sure with you and vorshlag before ordering the plates-thank you

Sent you a PM with my address. I'll get the measurements needed out as soon as I can get into the warehouse.
