Koni Yellow's are a good upgrade, but they are expensive. SS/TC stuff is actually a better system, for much less. GM didn't spend all that money at the Nurburgring for no reason.

Best setup Cobalt SS/TC Shocks and Struts with Pedders Springs.

Coilovers are nice, but there is always things to adjust and it takes forever to do, you are better off with going for something that is already solid and requires no adjustment.

by the best thing for a cobalt you can do is fe5 lnf struts and pedders springs until you spend some money and get coilovers.....which if thats the case stance are the best ones out for these cars until you spend serious cash and get anze or ohlins.

Ya I would much rather get the Fe5 ones cause of $. But I was worried about them going bad first like mine did after I put springs on, I have also talked to alot of people that said theres went bad real fast but thats the fe1 I have a ls. So the Fe5 is really that much better, I mean will it last a long time? I really want to do the whole Fe5 set up. Hows ride Quality? And these will last with sportlines. thanks

If you would really stick with the sportlines, they won't really last that long, I have heard sportlines are really just for lowering and not performance. Although Pedders are more expensive they are made for performance, they will still lower your car, but they will give you a better response in your turning, a difference you can feel, they get a strut bar for the rear, and that will really help. They will last for a long time, if you really want, PM WillBeck and he can tell you more, he has that set up.

The only advantage to the Yellows is that they're adjustable. However, i can't remember exactly, but i don't think compression is adjustable, only rebound or visa versa. The TC combo is the best all around option.

Coilovers are hard because most people don't understand what the different settings effect, and other than the stiffer spring rates, actually reduce the cars handling ablility.

Handling is in the spring rates yes, but the valving of your shocks is by far and away the most important aspect of your ability to control the car.

Never overlook shocks.

Don't go to TTR. Ottperformance.com

OTTP will get them before TTR does, and OTT orders them in larger quantities.
