VZ SV6 && 180sx
I'm finally in the market for a new suspension setup on my SV6. So far I've decided on a set of Coilovers, and I've narrowed it down to either Teins or Pedders XA's. Im looking for some feedback from people that own or have driving with either kits.

The car will only be used on the street, so looking for something with decent handling, yet still comfortable.

We have a set of Tein's on my 180sx, and they are great, but very stiff/harsh for everyday driving.

Another major factor is that I can get the XA's from the local pedders store, but I'll have to post the Tein's from down south.

Cheers in advance for any feedback!

Tein is good as, Dad uses an adjustable set up in he's SSV Ute, nice comfy ride but still stiff enough to handle nicely, of course that is adjustable...

How did you come to decide on coilovers???
Well I've had coilover's on previous cars, and loved the difference in handling they produced. Plus the adjustable height will be great fun to play around with!

I had lowered shocks and King's on my old VX, and wasn't overly impressed by them.

What prices have you got so far if you dont mind me asking? Pm me if you feel like saying. The only set i looked into were about $1800.

Here:

Otomoto - Holden/GM coilovers

But I would prefer something like Tein if I ever went with them.

Pedders retail for $1995, but if your a member of the LS1 forums, you get another 5% off, bringing them down to $1900.

Teins can be found for $2300.

Installation will also depend on your location, but should be at the most $500, with wheel allingments.
