They're a decent entry level coilover, yes. They'll be well ahead of stuff like Godspeed, and the eBay no name stuff. Also, dropping the back more than front will add to understeer. Usually guys drop the front a bit more than the rear on FWD stuff, but we're talking a few millimeters

These were a little more than the ez 2s I didn’t know if these were older models or had any advantages or worse I’d be better off with ez 2s

These are better than the EZ Street due to a different grade of stainless used (less prone to rusting), more damping control, and better valving for performance use.

EZ Street are like your Godspeeds. Guys in the south who never experience snow and just want to be lower get away with them. Guys who want performance or live in colder climates usually write back about rust issues and not being able to adjust them anymore after 1 winter, and find that replacement higher grade suspension rides better.


I always suggest good lowering springs over cheap low grade coilovers, but the ones you shared are something most people are happy with. With your mild lowering goals, the different strut body of the BC Racing ones isn't worthwhile for you.
