Used a lot on pulsars instead of tein monoflex, but the bracket for the droplink were never braced properly and kept breaking under hard use. Seem good for most other cars and about half the price :)

K- tec advertise that the eibach and the Ha d R spring are an improvement over the standard r26 springs, yay or nay anyone
Nay for me.

I think the standard r26 setup is hard to improve without spending a decent amount of ££

agreed after changing the standard R26 setup i want it back. But got used to the lower looks and to lazy to put the standard springs back in.

So why do they sell them saying they are an improvement, surely someone like K-tec would their stuff
They don't say they're an improvement. On their website they say "Due to many requests we are now stocking the excellent range of H&R coilover suspension kits" and these kits "are regarded by many as some of the best suspension kits available."

Unless there's something else on their site, K-Tec are not claiming coilovers are an improvement, and it suggests they're selling them because people want them.

Don't buy them !!!!!!!!!!! I can tell you they do the complete opposite in an R26. Quote from K-tec's site 'Being uprated they will also reduce body roll and improve the handling' On the other had i bought them to lower the car as temporary fix until I get the funds for V3's which they do very well.

Fact is dude that the spring rates of the H&R and Eibach set-up tell you what to expect. It's a fair amount of work to change the springs on a Meg so if you're going to go to the trouble of changing, and you want to improve the handling, then you might aswell do it properly or not at all.

You do a fair amount of track work and not a huge amount of road driving wwith it so you're a prime candidate for some V3's, AST's or Nitrons imo.

The coilovers listed in the first post might have a reasonable reputation in other circles but the spring rates for the rear look retarded (so retarded that I suspect they're wrong). Would want that clarifying first really.
