Question Tein or Megan Coilovers

I went through the pages and didn't find anything to seriously into the question.

GS model with Tein Basic or Megan Street coilovers?

Same price so I'm looking for build quality, ride quality, and longevity.

Thanks!

I havn't read much on Tein coilovers but from my understanding megan's are not bad. However, for a little more you can pick up D2 Coilovers which seem to have more options for ajustability and have recieved positive feedback.

nuh uh. megans have an issue with the sway bar end link attachment points (aside from the fact that they are fixed, they are not fixed in the correct location). D2's are better (get them from joey) since you can put the sway bar where you need it, according to your drop.

I forgot about D2! Haven't looked at suspension for a while. I heard about the Megan misplacement but didn't see that their correction was still wrong. Thanks for that knowledge.

Again ill state, megan has corrected the problem. Yes they are in a fixed location, but if you have upgraded endlinks they are fine and wont bust. I have had them on my car for about 1200 miles of city driving and have not had a problem with them thus far.
