In Reply to: Sway bars... Question! posted by Bimmerfan on April 25, 2000 at 12:34:00:
: Second question off the subject. Does anyone make coil-over kits for front and back? I was told the H&R coil-overs were only threaded adjustable in the front. What is the difference between H&R and Bilstein (I read that H&Rs were made by Bilstein on the Turner Motorsports website) just the fact that the H&R name offers coil-overs?
The rear shock mounts wear rapidly anyway, should be a once a year replacement IMO, so I say go for it. If you feel the need to upgrade springs/dampers later on, do it, but the sway bars should be a nice addition right away.
I wouldn't count on putting coilovers in the rear since the cars have a separate shock and spring. The area above the shock is not reinforced to take the abuse of a true coilover. Something along the lines of an adjustable perch on the spring and an adjustable shock like Koni is probably more like it, ala Ground Control.
