    Coilover thread- what do you use and user feedback?

    Trying to start a thread to help other users in deciding what coilover to use and spring rate- essentially - just fill in the blanks for the suggested format below:-

    E.g.

    Make of car and model year?
    Sti 2002 (bugeye)

    make of coilover?
    Cusco zeroxp

    new or used
    used

    spring rate?
    F:10k
    R:8k

    How much ways is it adjustable
    10 way

    Intended use?
    Daily with a bit of track time

    Has it been tuned professionally or DIY tune at home?
    DIY following some of the basic principles

    Additional comments?
    Suspension is a bit harsher than stock but that might be due to energy suspension bushings.
    Body roll has been reduced and transitions from sweeping left to rights are more balanced.
    Understeer has been reduced.
    Less squat during launch

    Able to reduce times in autocross by 2(s) but may be due to new tyres as well....

    Any fender mods to make this fit
    Yes, had to roll the rears

    size tires?
    235/45/17

    feel free to add in any other common questions that might help others

    Not sure of the spring rates

    Installed by the dealer, never adjusted the height (installed out of the box). I adjust the damper settings from time to time.

    Additional comments?
    Suspension is a bit harsher than stock but that might be due to whiteline suspension bushings.
    I find it kinda bouncy on the softer settings
    Had it on the car more than 3 years now, no problems
