just wondering what brands make coilovers for the iggy sport and what expieriences people have had with them, eg ride quality, amount of adjustability/ drop in ride height.

im not too fussy about the ride quality, but it needs to handle well!

or am i better off getting just standard lowered springs and shocks?

I got a second hand set of the SuzukiSport Sport/Comfort set. I think they're good but it's not a cheap option. If you don't intend to use the car on track may not be worth the cost.

Cusco also do/did coil overs for the ignis, i would ask Hertz to see if he is able to track some down. i think were nearly $2000 at the time i was looking.

If you want cheap and cheerful king springs and koni shocks. will most likely cost just over $1000. That was my set up, but i ditched the kings because its a daily driver.

If you are after part numbers have a search under my name.

KYB are OEM equipment in Suzukis, and I reckon they're good value for money. If you want to improve over stock then Koni are the next rung on the ladder. 8)

Any idea if the Kings Lows are the same for the 1.3L Iggy & 1.5L Iggy sport?

not sure i think they are the same, on the king springs web site it says ignis type 1 to 4 whatever that means? however i believe the shocks are different.

i never had the chance to get the springs. My Ignis was written off a fortnight ago :cry:

I am officially out of the suzuki game for a while :cry:

wrx here we come :twisted:

yeah im fine just a sore neck lol, i hit a jacked up 4wd going round a blind corner, he had just reversed out of his house (not from his driveway, just straight over the curb near the corner), scraped from the TOP of the bonnet all the way down the side of the car, every panel on the drivers side was smashed :shock: ill put some pics up later

of course hardly even scratched his car, then he tells me aluminum bullbars aren't strong enough :x

wrx is in the driveway now MY98 Hatch :twisted: just has 3' exhaust and MY03 wrx rims

Seems such a waste that it's write off. If it's to get broken and you find out where please post details.

yes i know it a waste they said it was about 10k damage :shock: the insurance company did well for me though $11,700 on a market value policy 8)

i think the car was towed on behalf of manheim fowles, however it isn't on their web page so not sure? might still be held by the insurance company or sold already. Not sure, could have been a different company?

on another note the 17' rims are going up for sale they weren't on the car at time of accident thankfully $550 will post around aust for $150 (tyres are around 50%) viewtopic.php?f=9&t=35751 pics here
