Debating on what coilovers to get..

Hey guys, I'm currently running function form type 2s. They're on full stiff but just don't feel stiff enough. I've been considering buddyclub n+. Anyone used or currently using these?.. Or something just generally better than function form? Or if someone could direct me to somewhere in the forum that's addressed this.? Any input is appreciated.

They're gonna be used for freeway commutes and somewhat rough backroads so I need something that will hold up to some abuse. A friend of mine has n+ and they feel good but its on a 8th gen civic and his car is lighter than mine. And another buddy has bc and theyre crazy good. but they're on an mr2 spyder so its kind of hard to gauge a sense of how itd feel on my whale of a car lol.

What's your budget like? Check out AMR coilovers, they are very well built.

I can't say I've ever heard anyone say F&F coils were not stiff enough; usually it is the exact opposite.

Funny you mention that Ike. I'm looking at upping the spring rates on mine.

OP, tcazes hit the nail on the head. Functions are more budget oriented and won't keep up with those mentioned. If you are mostly using the car to commute, functions work fine and so does most anything else on the market. If you're looking to push your car harder, go with what was already mentioned or up your spring rates like I'm thinking of doing.

Tien is over priced for what they are imo. To bouncy. Amr is some amazing quality. Bc has covered the market from ultra slammed to racing. Hell go ksport even if you want and put bags on them bastards and ride however soft or hard you want. My Megan's do awesome. I could use slightly stiffer rates but I'm super anal about ride quality and if I am satisfied with them on our terrible roads of south Louisiana I'm pretty sure you will be good. With any I listed

Yeah they're cool for commuting, when I drive drive though, the rears are cool, stiff as sh!t. It's just the front that's a bummer.

If you are looking for longevity/life span of the product, I would suggest AMR. High quality and no blown shock in 8+ years, including race/track/offroad abuse. The ride quality is on the stiff side for daily commute, but they certainly feel solid.
