Who has ECS Coilovers

Who here is running or has experience with ECS coilover line.

They are similarly priced to the Jom Blueline, Solo-Werks S1, and the FK streetlines.

https://www.ecstuning.com/b-ecs-part...021545ecs02kt/

They include the install kit with the coilovers.


Looking for people who have them or has installed them opinions on them.
Thanks

I don't know about the coilovers themselves, but I wouldn't get the version with the install kit.

I had their HD strut mounts and the Vaico rear shock mounts they include in that kit, and both are garbage - I had squeaking from both ends of the car from the very start. I got fed up after about 5k miles and switched back to OEM.

All the parts in the kit are what need to be replaced, but you should see if they can swap in good quality mounts, either OEM or Febi. Everything else is legit.

Good choice. I'm not really convinced the TT mounts are any heavier duty than GTI or Golf R mounts, but they'll work just fine.
