LG G5 Coiovers or PFADT GMPP coilovers?

Does anyone have any good info on the G5 coilovers or should I get the PFADT GMPP coilovers? I plan on tracking at Nurburgring next year when I move to germany. Please help?

Make it easy on yourself, stop by the Pfadt Europe location in Adenau, Germany adjacent to the Nurburgring track.

I don't have much experience with the G5's, so I can't really comment on them, but I can tell you that Pfadt makes a top line product.

I am looking to purchase and install before I get to Germany in February. I like the pfadt and I was planning on using them with the stage V race kit. The coilover's are optional really. If the lg's are just as good as the gmpp pfadt coilovers then I would use the lg's.

From what I remember the LG coil overs can only adjust height. They can not adjust stiffness. Last time I was at the track the quick adjustment on the pfadt coil overs came in handy. They were to hard in the rear so I softened them up and it handled a lot better. I wouldn't spend the money on something you can't adjust IMHO.

Thanks, I didn't really notice that. Well I guess that means I gotta finish saving for the PFADT stage V track pack. Thanks all for the helpful info.

Make sure you check out my Autobahn/Nurburgring 2SS build thread for more updates which are coming Monday!!!

If your choices are only between those two brands, pfadt hands down.

I would agree. I am sure the LGs are a quality product but in term or function and capability there is no comparison.

The Pfadt's have a great amount of adjustment to them, with great product support and quality behind it. Plus if you are moving over to Germany and will be close, the guys over at Pfadt Europe can always help you with setup when you get over there.
