Megan Racing Pro Coilovers reviews?



Anybody here using these coilovers? I'm looking for reviews on craftsmanship, adjustability, and best price found (so far I've found $899 from Phase 2).

At first I was looking into getting the Tein Basic setup for nearly the same price. The Megan setup offers pillowball mounts, 32 way adjustable dampening, and full ride height adjustability (ofcourse). I have no doubt that Megan makes a good product, I have ordered a Megan part before in the past (N1 muffler, craftsmanship was IDENTICAL to an Apex). I was looking for first hand experience with the overall product, comparison to the Tein Basic and Tein SS's, ride quality, and overall opinions of worthy of the price.

Any insight is appreciated!

I wouldn't get these from what I have read about them, but I am sure there is people who have that can tell you more. While I would trust megan's products in other areas the suspension aspect of a 240 is to critical for me to have any second guesses.

But do they have the coil-overs, thats the item in question. Any one can make a test pipe, exhaust system, downpipe, etc. But when it has to do with dampers and springs it takes a little more know how.
Not saying they are bad just you need to compair like things.

I have heard great things from some people and other complain about bolts rusting over time. I guess if you take care of them they should be good, lets her more custmer testomoniles.

Searched, didnt find anything. I'll try again and see if I can score a link to that thread and paste it in here. But you pretty much told me what I wanted to hear.

Honestly, I think I am pretty much sold on these coilovers. You just can't find a good quality coilover with ride height, dampening, and camber adjustment ability for under $1K.

Megan Racing DOES make a good quality product. I honestly believe that they are going to be the next Cusco or the next Greddy in terms of being a fully reputable name brand for various parts.

They have a way to go on some things to be that trusted. Did you see in the for sale section someone is selling silk roads brand new for $1320? If you had the extra money I would def go with those as they are 1450-1600 new and a great coil-over. Other wise megans should suit you fine.

i think for the price ( i did some research) the MR's are a good coilover especially for the price...I'm probably gonna go with JIC or Silk Roads (which one!?)

Both excellent companies, i'd go with the silks between the two, or compare the spring rates/adjustability on the two that suites u best..
