Joshua, I don't have much back ground regarding coil overs, but Vincent (PowerAXEL), Jason or Billy (MODE), TiC or AMS may be able to give insight since they are very familiar with different kinds or coil overs & have been in the racing scene for a while.

D2s have had a bad rep with the 240 world for the past few years now, if you want a cheap coilover i would go with ksport or megan racing, both are built well and have been proven to hold up.

Big sale on WedsSport Wheels right now!

d2 makes ksport coilovers...i've visited their factory before. plus i believe the ksport coilovers are progressive springs according to the tester. why the heck would you want that.

will be offering an amazing deal on great race-quality coilovers soon - that's been tested and r&d for a while now to get the right balance of spring rates. dyno plots will be available!

In my ever so humble opinion if you feel like pissing away money then Ksports and D2s are a great way to lighten your wallet and leave you with that hollow, you got taken feeling.

If you enjoy that feeling then by all means go for it.

D2 coilovers are on the "cheaper" side of the coilover spectrum...i had 3 sets on my old 240s....not sure how they are in recent years...but their base coilover is ok

i would recommend you spend the money on a more expensive coilover setup from apexi, greddy or JIC (i personally love JIC FLT-A2s...one of the best coilover setups on the market)...basically you get what you pay for

from what ive experienced in the 240 world...stand makes a great coilover...and they are producing them for the genesis now...lots of the 240 guys like em and say theyre very predictable with great dampening rates (basically when you change the dampening settings even a few clicks, its easily felt)

also, to reply to a post above...K-Sport is the same thing as D2...K-Sport is another brand of D2...all of the parts are the same

I've heard that a thousand times and it's been disproved just as much. They are entirely two separate companies. Their coil overs may be copy-cats with one another but the companies are in no way related to each other.

Either way, I have heard both companies have a bad rep. K-sport was supposedly a little better, but I heard on heavier cars it would not hold together properly.

K-Sport was started as a seperate way to market the same company...when D2 wanted to expand to America and Japan...it created K-Sport as a more appealing company for the chosen markets...now as far as if k-sport has split off and bought out the rights is beyond me...but K-Sport was started by D2 and produces the exact same coilovers and product line as D2 does from the same suppliers

i personally met with D2 reps back in 2004 when ksport and D2 came to america...the 2 girls were from the home office in asia...one of their names was maggie...and the other i cant remember...but i brought up the ksport thing to them and wanted clarification...i was informed of what i stated in the above paragraph...but that was 6 years ago and of course times change

cheaper coilovers are fine for people who want to learn about them and such...thats where D2, godspeed, K-Sport and all the other cheaper brands come in...but for people who want coilovers that are track ready and proven...there are much better alterantives out there...like i said in my previous post though...you get what you pay for

I've had D2 coilovers and overall they weren't that great. None of the cheap coilovers do that great of a job....thats why they're inexpensive. If you want a good setup but can't afford $2,500 up front, then go with the megan and later you can upgrade the springs with swift or what ever brand you prefer. Doing this you can get your $1,000 coilovers to perform like more expensive ones.

Right now Stance GR+3s & KW-V3s are the main two choices for me, but still waiting to see what TiC comes up with.
