B13: Megan Racing Coilovers
UPDATE: Picture's are back up. And a bit more info added.

I know a very few of us own this suspension so I thought I would give it a shot and see how it performs.
~Megan Racing Coilovers
~Spring rates: 6kg/4kg (roughly 330/220)

Purchased from Sonic Motor - Power and Performance Great service and products. Highly recommend them.

The install took me a full weekend. This is my process. What you may do could be different, but in the end, it's just a matter of removing old suspension and installing the new suspension.

Here is what comes in the box. (exluding the car keys)

First I attacked the rears.

Here it is installed.

When installing the rears and you have a progress rear sway bar, I would recommend discontecting it for it causes a bind when trying to move around the knuckles. Stock sway, you would have to disconnect it anyways. Be sure to adjust ride height accordingly.

Now the fronts.

This results to the final product:

The fronts were very straightfoward. Just be sure to re-torque everything down to manufacture specs.
In order to achieve your ride height, first drop the car using the settings the coilovers come with. Then measure how low you want to go. Measure the distance between quarter panel/fender and the top of the tire. Jack the car back up and turn the threaded collar clockwise in that amount.

The first test drive, I ran into a couple issues. My tires rubbed the inner fender lips in the rear. So I hammered those flat and then it started to rub the top of the fender well. So I'll work on that. Having the coilovers on the stiffest setting would help this as well.
Somehow, my right side tie arm got misaligned giving me massive toe out while the driver's side was fine. So I eyeballed it and fixed that issue.
The car vibrates more with I'm assuming because of the solid mounts.

In about a week, I'll report how it operates under regular street driving and spirited driving.

Not a bad price for coilovers. Let us know how these work out, if they work well for you I will be seriously considering them.

Thanks for the write up

2 week follow-up:

Tires still rubbed like crazy so I hammered the rear lips completley flat. For the fronts, I removed the plastic shrouding and hammered the fender lips flat. Now there is no more rubbing. =)

You can see the removal of the shrouding here.

I wasn't quite happy with the ride height in the front and decided to go lower. But in order to do so, I had to remove the black collar. This is the result.

Now that I got everything adjusted, this is the final result.

Now the the suspension has had its break-in period, it rides very nice. It reminds me alot of my hyperco setup. Yes, it is low, but that's how i like it.

you know the shock is now out of the base is it touching the CV boot as i did that on a set of coilovers on my N15 and after a week i realised they were to close when the inside of my wheel arch was coverd in CV grease

How much was it may I ask? Looking for one for my b14.

stance looks really good.i wish i could drop my car like that, but my ic pipes would get crushed over minor bumps for sure.

874 for megan anything is a bit expensive in my book, but if our happy thats all that matters. its also good that theres another suspension option out there for us b13 guys.

is that knuckledusters old se-r ?
