which one is better for corsa B Gsi??

FK Highsport coilovers 505, height adjustable only
front -55/75mm
rear -55/75mm

Spax RSX coilovers 470, height + 28 position Dampening adjustable
front -50/80mm
rear -60mm

are the details above accurate??
they are only coilovers on the front?? so wat this mean??
spax kit only -60mm rear? is this fixed,n better to sit lil bit higher than front?

spax kit says will need modified anti-roll bar if go lower than -45m front or may foul it
and also that "mechanical ABS" will require adjusting

Look in general chat. Group but on FK coilovers, only 370 if we get 10 people yo order, 9 haver so far. If below 10, then they are 380. I have some on order as the group buy deal, hence i suggest FK!

mechanical ABS is the brake bias valve for the rear drums this is only on higher powered models. I have put the Spax kit on my car and it is The damping adjustment is very useful.

yeah the spax got 28 position dampness adjusting but is this just on the front?

ive heard the FK ones are meant to be very good ride quality too, not too harsh or not too soft

think it depends how low you go as to the harshness of the ride..the lower, the stiffer.

SPAX are NOT REAR HEIGHT ADJUST.

They are std -60mm springs at the rear, so u cant go -70mm back with SPAX.

The highsports are as said 370 if u order very soon, and are fully height adjustible front and rear.

For everyday car u dont need damping adjust tbh, the rear height adjust will be more useful, and there 100 less.

hmmm well i dont wanna get the spax if its not adjustable
il go with the Fk highsports with -75mm all around

will the FK's be a true -75mm all around on my corsa B Gsi??
also is it just the fronts that are coilovers, does this mean the rears are not that good??
