    Default Questions on various suspension setup, Koni FSD, MS shock & spring, Eibach Pro

    As the title stated, I'm looking for input for my new suspension setup. My plan is one of the following setup. It will be mostly use for daily/spirit driving and occasional auto-x.

    1. Koni FSD & Eibach Pro
    2. MS shock & MS spring
    3. Koni FSD & MS spring
    4. MS shock & Eibach Pro

    Any suggestions and experience will be appreciated. I know MS spring is Eibach branded spring but I think there should some rate and ride different, am I right?

    I think Justin has this setup "1. Koni FSD & Eibach Pro". You might want to send him a PM.

    And JPAV8S4U has this setup "2. MS shock & MS spring". You might want to send him a PM.

    I'd personally get the Koni/Eibach.

    No reason really other than the fact that i trust their names as a renowned suspension company

    Why FSB over the Sports though? I've read about the FSB's but haven't heard any first hand accounts. The Sports though would be great since you could stiffen everything up for autox and then soften it back down for the street.

    Do you compete in autox or just go out for fun now and then? If you're competing, then the first thing you should check in the rulebook to ensure you're not dumped into a class you can't compete in.

    I'm running on the Koni yellows with the sportlines. The Sportlines are amount the best springs for the street for any car, and the koni yellows have such a wide range of adjustment to suit any driving style.
    Want to work on your car but not sure how, send me a PM. Learn the way of Nator.

    Thx guys for the input. I'm leaning toward Koni FSD & Eibach pro for now, this is my 1st suspension mod. Anyone know where I can order online within Canada instead of from US? If order from US, I have to pay brokerage/import fee and money exchange. I'm from Winnipeg, seems to me this combo kit is very hard to get locally. If this doesn't work out, I'll get Mazdaspeed shock and spring.
