What's up Turbo, I had asked Jon at RosenAutoSport about this combination while my cams where being installed. If I remember correctly Jon said, That coilovers are the way to go for suspension upgrades and that GC was about the best you can get for street application, But the ride is a little rough. That seems to be the general opinion I have been getting about upgraded sport suspension, But I personally think that comes down to what you are going to use your car for. My G20 doubles as a family car, and recently I had similar questions here at the Forum, and I think for now I will be going with just the AGX until my girl get a car of her own. If you want an experienced view on the ride and installation I would advise giving Jon or Joe at RosenAutoSport a call or E-mail them. www.rosenautosport.com

My brother-in-law has that set-up in his sentra, (sportline&kyb), but if you think that is rough...well..it gets rougher with the G/C's. My friend has the G/C & Koni, needless to say the car handled great! On the other hand, you don't want to ride in his car for more than 15 min's...unless your driving!!!!

I may be out of line here, but I think that sometimes a car will ride BETTER with stiffer aftermarket springs when you also have aftermarket shocks. It seems to me the AGX and Tokiko shocks (the 2 I have experience with) are valved rather aggressively. With stock springs it seems to be overkill. When I replaced the stock springs on my old 280ZX with Eibach Pro-kits, the ride went from harsh to fantastic with the Tokikos. Those springs seemed to be a better match for the Tokikos than the stock ones I pulled off. I hope the same thing will happen when I do the GC coilover setup later this year with my KYBs. Anyone else experience this?

OK i went to take my car for a drive. It sounds like the top mount of the ground control is loose on my passager side rear. Everything else seems fine. Any info from anyone?

I take everything back!! I hadn't been in my friend's car since he got them first put in. We went to the races yesterday, and the ride was incredible!! I asked him if he had done something else to the suspension, he said no why. Well boys and girls, needless to say after a full night of spanking honda transplants, I ordered that same setup for my car!

I don't have the setup so I don't remember the details.
