Exclamation Im Thinking of Buying Megan Racing Coilovers

Okay so im getting my tax returns soon and i was thinking of getting coilovers instead of a whole new suspensión and was wondering if the Megan racing coilovers were any good? I seen good reviews of the street coilovers which are like $850 but I cant find any for the Megan racing ez coilovers there like about $600 i think and was wondering if they were any good?

Two of the local guys here in my area, are running Megan Coils, one has easy streets, and the other has the street series, both of them like the set up... If you check ebay you'll find both. I don't know what cobalt you have, if its the 2.2, 2.4, SS/SC or SS/TC. Knowing a little more about your and your plans for it will help us to help you.

Megan coilovers would to be a step up from the 2.2 struts and springs, there is no denying that. I have an LS, and the way it handles is just sickening compared to the the way my SS handles. Also you have to remember that there is more to handling then just struts and springs. There are lot of things that go into making the 2.2's handle well.

Not at all, the megan coilovers will defiantly help your handling. I'm just saying there are other things that go into it, like the swaybar, swaybar endlinks, control arms, and such. Your suspension will only be as good as its weakest link.

If you want low the Stance coilovers are going to get you the lowest from what I've seen personally. As far as handling, I liked how the stance coilovers felt in my buddies car. They are a bit pricey though. I haven't really heard anyone complain about how the cars handled after installing any coilovers.

The strut tower bar is more just for looks, on our cars anyway. The sway bar is underside of the car you never really see it unless you flip the car or your on a lift. You can get a FE5 sway bar from an SS/TC part out pretty cheap, or other manufactures like powell. You can get moog sway bar endlinks from Rockauto, ebay, or even your local parts store, just make sure they are endlinks for the FE5 (SS) suspension.
