Suspension Shopping

Hello again everyone,
Today I am wondering about suspension, I plan to get adjustable coilovers though im not sure which brand yet, I plan to also get these adjustable lower control arms https://www.ftspeed.com/part/st48-re...d#.YEFYVo5Kjeh

Aside from this Im not sure what all is really worth replacing the car.
If you guys have any suggestions in regards to brands for coilovers, or additional mods please let me know

Many Thanks!

What are your goals? Daily driver, track time, auto-x, canyon carver, stance, etc.

What kind and what size tire do you run?

What other mods do you have?

How many miles on your car?

everything is worth replacing depending on what you use the car for.

My apologies I should have included this with the original post.

Currently using 225/40/18 RE71s on oz ultraleggera 18x8s

Mods still kinda limited, but I have intake, catback and OFT running e85. I think my next upgrade, even before suspension though will be UEL headers, front and over pipe.

24k miles currently.

I will be using the car for SCCA auto cross, and im sure ill take it to the local 1/4 mile occasionally AS WELL as a daily driver (i only drive 5miles a day to work and back)

Thanks for any information you have

Great, that helps.

Depending on your level of commitment and budget, there are some really good options in the $1500 range to well over $3k. Our RCE SS1 coilovers are at that $1500 price point and are an excellent all-around, fast, fun, very daily-driveable set up. Commonly used for auto-x and track days. Beyond that, there are stiffer/faster/moreexpensive options like our RCE Tarmac 2s, MCS, JRZ, and the upcoming 949 racing set up. In your area, resistance to salt corrosion is probably a big deal, so I'd keep that in mind for sure.
