The non ZSP/Eibach combo is actually the worst for overall performance so overall comfort might be judged as poor also. For reference, the ZSP shocks are only just in control of this spring and struggle particularly with rebound.

FSD/Eibach is nice for moderate driving on reasonably surfaced roads, particularly compliant on the compression side of things. I found this combo poorly controlled and floaty at speed. Rebound damping quite weak too.

No experience of the Billy coils but as they are a matched setup, maybe an acceptable level of comfort at moderate settings?


I am currently using the Eibach Pro Kit Springs + Stock Non-Sport Shocks.

My Review and Ratings (1-5)
a. On normal city roads = It has comfortable ride (4/5)
b. On pot holes and bumps = Its very hard and harsh on the car (2/5)
c. On speed highway (200 kph) = floaty, unstable, lose (3/5)
d. On cornering on normal street (60 kph) = its ok (3/5)

I want to improve letters B & C above but coilovers are very expensive and its not an option to spend for now. Should I go for Koni FSD?
