Re: Help me decide! $500 (approx.) to spend! (djGolfGTI)
I'm going to agree with the folks saying not to base suspension on price alone.
I originally had the Bilstein PSS9 coilovers ... never put them on my car 'cos of various QC issues. Now I have the Wietec GT 30mm kit.
I went with the coils 'cos I got them for a great price, and I thought the ability to raise and lower the car, and change the stiffness would be great. But once I sold them, I realized that a suspension setup without all those features would be fine, so long as the ride was what I wanted, and the drop was what I wanted (just a little lower than stock, nothing radical). The Weitec 30mm kit fit that perfectly ... but I only found that out once I had ridden in someones car, and seen various pics of the drop. Even then I waited to purchase them, and was able to get in on a GB.
Take your time ... no rush. Make sure you get what you want the first time around .... it's less expensive.
