Megan racing coilovers questions

The Megan coilovers are priced around $900, pretty cheap for new ones. Anyone know how it is overall? Quality, ride, etc... Thanks!

hey bro , i haven't heard any bad things about the Megan coils for the 370z yet, but at $900 you should spend $50 more and get some BC BR coils, several member have them here as well as myself and like them quite a bit. hope this helps.

I would recommend the BC over the Megan, the quality reputation is a bit better plus they offer things like custom spring rates and valving.

I bought the Megans and got ride of them because they sucked!! I've had multiple cars with coilovers and they by far were the worst product I've ever bought.
BC Racing customer service sucks!! I never got a call back from their national distribution office line.
Get KW or HKS or Tein coilovers.

I know! My wife got sick riding with me on a 4 hour trip. That was the last straw! Have loved my H&R springs since then. Now looking at KWs.

I had no problem with BC support, although they were a little slow.

you get for what you pay for my friend. Sometimes you gotta spend more to get better parts. KW and HKS are the best out there for right now.
1. KW or HKS
2. Tein
3. BC or Stance
4.Ill stick to springs before Ill go megan racing.

Vendors sell the BR type for around the same price, PM them! Support the vendors if you can.

I had a buddy with Megan coilovers on his Srt4. It road horribly so he went back to springs. Think you made the right choice with the BCs. Can't beat them for the price.
