Default Electronic Damping Force Controller...

I like the idea of having a EDFC unit inside the car where i can just make adjustments on the controller instead of manually on each coilover. I know Tein offers this, but i'm leaning toward KW V3's. Can you get a EDFC for KW's? Does any other brand offer them?

Tanabe makes one but I haven't seen one for Greddy, HKS, KW, Stance, or Zeal.

The dampening force controllers are all manufacturer specific as most coilovers use different fittings and adjustments for the dampening controls, so Cusco/Tein/GReddy electronic dampening controllers can only be used with their respective coilovers.

It all comes down to how much do you really adjust the dampening? I can count three times in the entire time I've had my car and I change my suspension settings quite frequently. IMHO most of the time the added $500+ for an electronic controller isn't worth it- it's not like I can't just adjust the dampening manually.

I guess that is true....i'll probably find the setting i like and never change it.

i can see those air ride hieght adjustment things being much more useful. if i had an infinite amount of money to spend on suspension, i might get the EDFC, but i'd rather either not spend the extra 500, or spend it on some other mod.
