Default Best racing coilovers for $1,000?

Ksport, Megan, D2, XYZ Sport, CXRacing all have very nice looking 32 or 36 way adjustable coil overs on flee bay. They all look very similar but what would you recommend for coil overs to increase the cars ability on the skidpad and around the track? I want the car to handle as good as my C6 Z06 Corvette or as close as possible. I realize I will also need sway bars to maximize handling and strut tower bracing.

Thank you!!
Eric

None, get new center diff. Coilovers aren't getting you close to the handling of a c6 zo6.

^ a combination of Coilovers and upgraded diffs should do the trick.

DG recommends making your own coilover via Bilstein struts & Ground Control coilover conversion kit.

I suggest..rather than jump straight to an alternate coil-over suspension setup. Find some front and rear Sanner sway bars and install them first before deciding to go further. You will retain the stock ride compliance but greatly improve the handling sensation. IMO - is the best bang for the buck that I ever spent.

The strut tower bracing would be a next step.

Considering your other posts and the fact that you're looking at $1k coilovers I'm guessing SCE's differentials are out of the question. And those are what you really need to get the performance you're after. For now, search on here for how to test your VCU, buy a good used one if its bad. Since you asked for coilovers, a lot of people seem to like the Megan's and BC's. Personally, I'm partial to stock ECS with lowering springs but to each their own.

I know its a completely different platform, but I have BC coilovers on my challenger, and combined with my Pedders sways and front and rear strut braces, it handles like its on rails. Thats a pretty amazing feet in that 4000 lb pig lol

whoever was talking about saner sway bars, they have not been available for years. They were probably the only decent swaybars available for this platform, sorry 3sx / Addco.
