As above, what coilovers are people using and what would you recommend, where from and how much?

Im looking to replace my Jamex kit which I feel is still a bit bouncy!

Any help would be great!

I have a tweeked KW on my ST and its great. If I paid for it though I would have gone for AP as I don't think they are worth 700+

I used spax's where ok but fixed height at the back and I have gaz's now it purely depends on what you what! The gaz's are more track related tho but you can choose the spring poundage!

i've got gaz ones on mine, picked them because they dont have a camber adjustable top hole and you can also adjust how hard or soft they are
