Coilovers are an adjustable form of suspension for road or race cars. Coilovers allow you to change your springs rates and damper rates easily and with minimum hassle. By adjusting ride height and damping characteristics ie bump and rebound, the balance (understeer/oversteer) and grip of the chassis can be altered.
Coilovers come in a variety of forms from kits which are only adjustable for height to kits which are height adjustable, and are damping adjustable, not just compression and rebound independently but also adjustable for high and low speed movements.
In our opinion, at a minimum a coilover suspension kit should be height adjustable and damping adjustable.
The manufacturers on this page offer a huge variety of coilovers from the budget minded to full on F1/Le mans/Touring Car specification.
