D-MAX coilovers

Im a HUGE fan of tein but i recently started learning more about d-max and they seem to be pretty damn sweet. so my question is any one ever run d-max coilovers ?? any positive or negative feedback?? im still most likely gonna get the tein super drifts but im lookin around a little bit first.

I'm running D-Max SPEC D1 on my S15. I bought them used and am missing a couple pieces so removed them for the time being. But for what little time I had them on.

The ride quality........still a little on the bumpy side on the softest setting
Ease of adjusting......very nice
Looks.....................matches well with my car
They have a notched hole to run additional camber on the front, which is nice.


Overall opinion, they are a good buy....but there are better out there if you have the money.

i would get some stance coils. there construction is beefy & they have good valve rates. i havnt ridden in a s13 w/em, but i have driven my buddys gc impreza w/em. the gc chassis is the same weight as the s13 & i liked the way they performed. my KTS coils are great for drift, but i would like a softer spring to be able to get more suspension movement so im not hopping around everywhere. the choice is yours, just dont buy megan or ksport

Stance is a great choice. You'd be happy with them.

ksports use thinner alum. in the shock bodies (ive deduced this theory from 3 of my frnds having warped shock housings from running on the street), the valve rates are way ****ty & unpredictable, & the shocks blow way too easily. dont cheap out on something that is as critical as suspension components. ksports are 900 & stance,KTS,ect. are only 300-400 more. do it right the first time!

Best advice right there! Pay a little more now and enjoy them longer.

Lots of companies have "drift specific" coilovers, anyone can say that "these coilovers are for drifting" Just read reviews they are all over the interwebz.

drift "spec" coils just use stiffer springs and they might change the valving in the shocks a lil bit, but all good coils will help you drift better. & everyone has their own tastes as far as rebound/compression & spring rates go. i just know that stance coils are very good entry level coils & they dyno their shocks to perfection. where as teins are not as predictable or consistent. check the spl vs. tein shocks.
