Recommendation for coil over kit

Hey guys,

My mechanic told me that I need a coil over kit for my 2002 S2000, 145,000 miles. The tires are wearing unevenly, etc. He'd be doing the install because I'm not mechanically inclined.

So he told me to do some research and find a 'Complete coil over suspension kit'. Anyone have some recommendations?

Really appreciate it!

By the way. Not looking to lower it or race it, just normal street driving.

Tein or Ohlins, Bilstein, Koni. All are good, just depends on what you want to spend.

Don't want to blow the bank obviously, but don't want to go cheap either. Lot's of different model numbers. Any ones to stay away from?

Question is, do you want a coilover kit or are you doing this because your mechanic recommended it? Seems like you may just have worn shocks and just need a shock replacement (and a few other rubbers pieces in the assembly that may be worn out). Pocket the other 1k, have your s2k perform like new, profit.

Had the coil over kit installed. Handles great. Seems tighter to the road. Had them keep the height the same as OEM. I don't run it hard so I may not be the best judge, but it passes the wife test. She road in it today and said it's 'less bumpy'. So that's a good thing. Keep the co-pilot happy!
