D2 Coilover settings

I just purchased a set of D2 coils and need help on where to even start with the settings, im pretty much a noob when it comes to this.

Are you talking about the height settings or damper settings?

Either way I would match the fronts and match the rears, put them on the car, and adjust as needed.

Damper will depend mostly on your preference in ride quality, and then partly on your ride height. The lower you go the stiffer you'll probably end up wanting them. If you're not slamming it just start with the damper settings in the middle and adjust as needed from there. Give them a couple weeks to break in and then start tweaking from there.

If you slam it go almost full stiff, 3-4 clicks away from max is probably good enough. I've seen a few guys recommend not going full stiff and ... this conversation just took a really strange turn in my head

full stiff on slammage. If you so desire, you can put your car on the ground....LITERALLY!!! yOU don't want a lot of give at that height. At any other point, I'd just try the factory settings and see where you end up. Go from there. Dampening is mostly preference and moderately height inclement.

This is going to come down to personal preferences. You'll need to figure out which settings you like best.

I personally would get them revalved along with new spring rates. i have ksport coilovers which are exactly the same as D2's. Did a bit of personal reading and found the the spring rates are **** and the damping is even worse.

false and false. They're fine for me. If you're gonna spend the money to do all that, you coulda just got stances or bc's.

Oh really? because a 7.2kgs spring with a .97 motion ratio makes complete sense with a 12kgs spring in the front? im sure you have never actually driven your car quickly. As for BC's or stance's, those arent all that better. Theres a reason why companies like feal and fortune auto have become popular. PROPER DAMPING on a cheap coilover with spring rates that make sense. unless youre hellalow and like that your car rides like crap, d2's suck
