Lately I’ve been studying up on suspension and am planning on swapping to Ground Control coilovers and and Techno Toy Tuning camber plates.  These are quality, American made pieces, but are much more affordable than the JDM counterparts that I love so much.  Unfortunately, my wallet just doesn’t agree with what my mind wants.  It doesn’t stop me from researching and dreaming though…

Star Road coilovers.

Spirit Garage coilovers.

RS Start x Ohlins coilovers.

My dream set up…  RS Start x Ohlins coilovers and Brembo Brakes ($$$$$$).

The cheapest of the three coilover are the Star Road coilovers coming in at around $2,200, provided you exchange your old struts.  Ground Controls with the T3 camber plates will run me about $1,000.  Is it worth saving the extra $2,000 (I’m figuring $3,000 since I won’t be exchanging my old struts and the associated shipping charges) for the JDM “tyte-ness”?
