zeal coilover

#1
Hi can anybody advise isit true that zeal coilover after four to five months it will have the knock knock sound and it is normal?

Any suspension with pillar mounts will have knocking sound after 6 to 9 mths of used. 8 out of 10 will have such sounds. With evo weighing ard 1.4 tonne, it makes such problems surface even faster. Those who didn't experience such problem are damn lucky bastards.

Hope this answer your problem.

Just curious as a soon to be Evo owner.....wat's the price like for the Zeal coilovers & where to get them?

I think both suspensions got different range of products from $3000+ to S10,000+ depending on your needs.

Zeal can get from MB Performance.

Aragosta can get from ST Powered.

$10k for coilovers!! OMG!! Cant afford anything near that...hehe.

Wld HKS absorbers be good enough? Considering since they are ard 3k plus for the Hypermax....

I recommend that you pay abit more to get the Hipermax Pro pfr so that you can adjust the ride height without preloading the springs.

$10k are for those really top end models bro. The entry level Aragostas and Zeals should be in the 3-4K bracket.

If you plan to go really hardcore on track, i wouldn't recommend the Hipermax Pro or entry level suspensions. You will just end up spending more money changing to the higher grade ones! :twisted:

Wow...i dun have the dough to keep one for track & one for road use leh....so i must get something to compromise for occasional track use. Seems the entry level Aragosta (ard $4200 was quoted) or KW Varient 3 might suit my needs? Anyone tried those b4?
