Eibach Multi-Pro Coil-Over R2 or Mutli-pro Coil-Over R1 or Ridetechs.

I'm trying to figure out what coilovers to purchase for my car. I'm pushing 700 RWHP and can't decide on ridetechs or Eibach. It seems know one really has any reviews on either. Does anyone have any references? Please help. I've called KW ans they said the V3 won't hold up. I will blow out the rear valves according to their inside sales person.

I'm having a hard time understanding how horsepower could blow a shock out.

I've tried the Eibach Multi Pro R2's, and they drove very well.

No clue. That's just what they told me.

The Ridetechs are hard to beat. They are built for hard use but on the flip side still ride extremely well. Even lowered about 1.5 inch they handle the torn up winter roads better than stock. The Fox Racing dampers they use have been tested to the max and hammered into the ground and have a 1,000,001 mile warranty. I can't imagine you would ever have any issues with them.

The rear coilovers getting blown out isn't an uncommon thing. it has to do more with the design/geometry of the rear suspension more than the HP of the car.

I have seen mixed reviews on the Eibach coilovers, but most of them in the Charger/Challenger crown vs the Camaro's

There are lots of options, I don't carry the ride tech but i've heard good things about them and their parts, but i do carry a number of other options.

We just installed a set of RideTech coilovers last week. I was very impressed with the quality and ride. Here are a few pics below. Let me know if I can answer any questions for you.

Best regards,

Thanks for all the info! Do I need to pick a certain spring from a ridetech due to my hp?

Ridetechs, or Bilsteins Pss10s. Stay away from Eibach crap I personally had issues with their endlink tabs and their front strut body isn't that strong either. For heavy duty use I say Bilsteins because their front and rear inverted shafts is very robust and helps to eliminate bending of the entire shock in the rear this will help with your 700 hp output. My Camaro SS feels like an elephant with tree trunks for legs with them on, very strong and sturdy.
