Hi Henrique,

In summary, coilover suspension will provide improved handling and adjustability over traditional springs. However, cheaper coilovers are a bit of a false economy and unless you have the money to spend on AST, Proflex, Satchell etc. specialists will usually recommend a high quality spring/damper setup.

There are many forum members running Bilstein suspension, so no issues with the B8 or B12 dampers that you mentioned. Just make sure you choose some springs that are well matched to the dampers and your rear torsion bar.

I have recently purchased this kit from Kam Racing in the UK:

I don't have any idea what it's like yet as I have only just had it fitted to the car.

Ok, well I understand that coilovers require a bit of regular maintenance - so there should be an option to repair what you have, rather than replacing these.

There is a great post here on spring rates:

Boas Henrique,

Pensava que era o unico portuguÍs por aqui.

O que chegaste a montar ?

Eu comecei apenas com umas Eibach vermelhas e com suspensao de origem nos trackdays.
Depois mudei de amortecedores, meti B8 atras e frente. Notei melhorias em todos os aspectos.
Actualemnte tenho umas faulkner (tirei as Eibach), e meti a barra traseira dentro do eixo, troquei a de origem 19mm por uma de 24.

My car has Bilstein B8's, and I'm very satisfied with their performance. These bilstein shocks handle really good. Ride quality is much like stock but a bit more solid and controlled.

Just got my car Rallye and looking to get rid of the roly-poly handling and tightening the thing up, but I also don't want completely ruin the ride (already have a track car).

As I already have B8 rear shocks, I was thinking of putting either Group N or B8's on the front with grams springs that Kamracing sell - Interested to hear thoughts on this.....
