Evo x Coilovers

Hi all, my front top mounts have started knocking pretty badly so i'm looking at what options i have that i'm not going to have to sell a kidney for. It seems as if the coilover route makes most sense seeing as the replacement oe stuff is so damn expensive. As much as i'd love a set of kw's i simply don't have that kind of cash! My car is primarily used for daily driving, commuting and a bit of back road bashing every now and again. I think i'm leaning towards the HSD monopro's as the reviews suggest that they're better than their price would have you believe. I'm wondering if anyone has any experience with these coilovers or has any better suggestions. i would wait and save for the kw's but time is of the essence now sadly! Thanks in advance.

Whats the price on Ohlin's R/T's over there compared to these? Here in the USA they can be had for only about $2k USD and they really out perform all the other coilovers in the $1-$2k USD segment by a land slide.

I completely agree with letsgetthisdone. I have Ohlins on my Evo and they are great. I'm lowered about 1.5-2 from stock and the car handles like a beast and I've had zero issues with them. Looks like they can be purchased around $2,400 before taxes now.

Sorry for the slow reply, i completely forgot i posted this thread! On the recommendation of some local evo/jap car owners, i've bought a set of HSD monopros. They feel great so far, a bit stiff but not crashy and they were only 800 brand new. i know its a bit of a budget option but i dont need the best coilovers in the world if it s just a daily, the hardest i push it is in the back roads and although i haven't really pushed them yet, they feel great so far.
