Coilovers are essentially an integrated shock and spring unit – matched perfectly together. Think of them as a strut, with a heap of upgrades.
Often more expensive than an aftermarket spring and shock combo, coilovers tend to come with a much wider range of adjustment; including height, compression, rebound, camber and caster.
One of the less-talked about benefits of coilovers is the fact that the spring and shock is a perfect match. When adding a lowering spring to a standard shock or strut, the spring rate, shock length and shock valving often doesn’t match.
With coilovers, this isn’t an issue, providing a higher quality ride and improving the handling and cornering of your car.
