I have just gotten a 92 Galant VR4 #508/1000 and as of now she has snow tires and some other wheels, i am replacing them with the Volk TE37 White Wheels and was wondering what Coils to get for a good fitment, and what spacers i should get because when putting the wheels on, they barely nick the brake calipers because i replaced the original with the 3000gt vr4 brakes. Any help is appreciated, thank you!

My FEAL coilovers feel great. I prefer them over the K-Sport and springs/shocks I used to have. As far as spacers, run as thin as you can, and get hub-centric if possible. JMFabrications still makes them in a few thicknesses.

The only thing for the spacers on JMfabrications is i see they're only selling 5x114.3 when i need a 4 x 114.3. I'm thinking i should get between 3 - 5mm spacers, and i was thinking BC coilovers cause i havent heard anything bad about BC. I'll look into FEAL though for sure.

I hate my BC's. Cheap, no travel, stiff, bouncy trash. I have the off the shelf 8k/6k (F/R) setup. I've wasted more time than I'd like to admit trying to get them to work well (acceptable) on the street. I expected as much when I bought them, but with the limited GVR4 specific options and somewhat decent reviews from others, I gave the BC's a try. Junk (IMO)...

I have no experience with, but have heard good things about Feal - especially the customer support.

We can also use CT9A struts/springs or coilover options. This adapter kit makes it easier than it used to be. click

Thats a shame, i was really planning on getting the BC's! haha i will definitely keep my options open. My plan right now is to get the RS kit, but i also want to get a replica AMG wing. But also trying to get new coils with some spacers since my wheels nick my calipers.

Eeek, glad I didn't get them. I ended up getting H&R springs and AGXs and I like the setup. I wonder how much the swift springs would make.. Sounds like no matter what coil overs you go with, the swift spring upgrade sounds like it's worth it.

If you don't actually need to adjust the height for racing purposes, a H&R spring AGX combo is a solid street setup. Completely modernizes the ride.

I bought Feal 441's with Swift springs after reading how everyone says how good they ride, but honestly my Talon on Ksports rides MUCH better. Both cars at similar ride heights. My old galant on Ksports also was better. I almost regret them when other Taiwanese coils ride better for...600 less
