Coilovers and what else

Have decided to get coilovers instead of springs..with the coilovers, is there any thing else I should add for reliability? Street car here, no track or drag racing..I do have a 2010 model so should I get the fe4 conversion? Thx

Nothing else is needed but there is always something else you could do. If you don't race or anything there is really no need to do the FE4 conversion unless you just wanted to say you had done it. Coil overs will improve handling a lot all on their own.

If the Ridetech coil overs are in your budget, get them. They are a much better product than the BCs and you can get a really nice ride out of them. Plus, they are made in USA.

You don't really need to add anything from a reliability standpoint. Anything beyond the coilovers could be optional and only better your handling.

That said, the FE4 conversion with a nice set of sways would definitely help out dramatically.

Feel free to call, PM or email me anytime with questions.

Best regards,

Tyler
