Track time does not require your car to have coilovers, or even "lowering springs". Trust me on this.

But off the top of my head, I'd be willing to consider this 1LE kit or these coilovers.

I have the RideTech HQs. Ya they are a little noises IF you use the Hard Top Mount but that is an Upgrade and a preferred method if you Track alot. If you stay with the Soft Rubber Top Mount they come with you'll love them.

Best value IMO. High Quality but not over priced. JDP is were i got mine and typically they can work on pricing with them.

Zeeeeee Germans are invading.

I went K and W. Prices have gone up the past few years. Look them up, they should be atleast in the ring for more people than they are. Only downside I have in my use is they are super showy purple and gold.

I will agree that RideTechs are great. They ride better that stock the only noise I get is for the top bearing mount. With the top rubber mount, you'd be real happy. Warranty and support are definitely second to none.

All that said, I have not compared them to another coilover on this car.

so the ride techs come wit ha rubber mount and are quite? It's a solid mound option that makes the noise?
I was thinking of getting the 1LE. how's the ride compared to the stock SS? Id like something that rides nice for a touring car but is up to the mods if already done. Id think adjustable would be the way to go.

JRZ made in USA, DSE made in USA. Motion Control now USA manufactured. 3 really great quality options right there. Penske if you can have them custom built.

We became aware of the noise issues and recently brought another car in for testing. As a result we have changed our endlink design and should have the new ones available in the next couple of weeks.

Ridetech is the way to go. They are a top notch product that is made in the USA. You shouldn't get any noise unless you add the bearing mounts.
