Default BC Racing DR, Fortune Auto 500, Feal 441, Stance XR1

I have done my research and saw the Feal guys stand behind their product and Cygnus stand behind Fortune, BC Racing seems to also be popular, and Stance is kinda a black sheep. Two other honorable mentions would be a Tein Street Flex Z, because it's a twin and Bilstein B16 (PSS9) because it's well known.

The 4 choices I have in the topic have adjustable camber plates front and back, brake line brackets, are all in the 1 to 2 K price range, mono tube, digressive piston, single adjustable, can get swift springs, and rebuildable

The BC Racing DR has : a 1 year warranty, Koyo bearings, and caster + camber front plates.

The Fortune Auto 500 has : a 5 year warranty, caster + camber front plates, a remote for adjusting on the fly, radial bearings, and up-gradable.

The Feal 441 has : a 1 year warranty (although not stated on their site), spherical bearings, coilover covers, and up-gradable

The Stance has XR1 : a 2 year warranty, thrust roller bearings, and coilover covers

Every car I've been in that used BC rode like ass. My wife got a set for her car (against my advice) and her car rode like shit, and the front left was basically falling apart as we drove it. I'll never touch a BC product again.

FA is fine. Feal is fine. Tein is ok (Their higher end stuff is good). Bilstein is good.

I have lots of personal experience with stance. Myself and many of my friends have been using them on our drift cars for years without issue. I have some friends who run them on the XR2s and XR3s on their time attack cars too. Customer service from them is top notch. At the end of the day though, they aren't all that different than most of the other options in the same price range, like FA, Feal, etc.

The personal experience I have with their product and level of service makes me stick with them for my cars that run coilovers.

That being said, I vote for FA, Bilstein, and Stance since those are 3 I've had positive experiences with.

I put the Tein Flex Z on the listbecause I have heard Tein is just really stiff and my guess the Flex Z being a twin strut it would be easier on a DD or I would put the Mono Sport on the list if it was smoother.
