    Default Coilovers for 306 and 206

    Hi there, I'm a newb to the scene. My brother and I have recently purchased a Peugeot (each) and we are both wanting to do some mods to them. We found these (http://www.autosports.com.au/index.p...egory/view/206) and had a chat to the guy about them and just wanted to know some opinions on here before we went ahead. We are new to Peugeots hence why I'm on here getting some advice first...

    Any help would be appreciated!

    Cheers!

    Newb

    I've never used D2's but the ones you've linked are pretty much a basic coilover setup by the looks of it. They only mention height adjustability, with no mention of bump or rebound.

    They do offer camber plates though so that will save you having to buy them separately.

    Coilovers are like anything in life. You pay for what you get. $1100-$1400 is pretty much the low end. Next step up would be something like KW's at around 3k which will get you some bump and rebound adjustability, then you're into aussie rally suspension like DMS or MCA setups with remote resevoirs which normally gets you hi/lo bump + rebound at 6-8k, then into the WRC level rally suspension like Reiger which will set you back around 14k.

    If you're just building a budget setup then they're probably fine.

    Edit: All my experience has been on Evo's not Pugs.

    Well after some research we're going to get brakes and suspension from D2. I must say the majority of the bad press I hear about D2 is from people who actually have no experience with it. All brands take a while to establish and although these are only bottom of the line products I have no doubt they will do the job just fine. Like anything if you treat it with respect you wont get bitten. Be an idiot and you'll be sure to treated the same way.

    There is heaps of pictures online of clean snapped d2 shocks after a number of incidences. This seems to be where all the hate arises from.
    for example:

    I have less than a year old complete GAZ GHA coilovers for a 306 gti6 for sale. I believe have only experienced fast road use. PM me if you want it

    I've got BILSTEIN B14s on mine (height adjustable) with camber plates fitted too.

    Forgot to add that I got em from the UK with the AST camber plates @ Kam racing (http://www.kamracing.co.uk/) at a good price given the exchange rate and had my mechanic fit them.

    Just a question what kind of 206 is it?

    Since your in Sydney, speak to Heasman's suspension who build and distribute Bilsteins. They have a section of the business dedicated to motorsport that just builds, services and dynos shocks and sets up race cars.
    They would be able make you a set with 36mm shafts or larger for roughly $2500. They valve them to suit your driving conditions; road, track, rally etc. When they wear out you take them back and have them rebuilt. Excellent aftersales support too.
    D2's = Junk
    KW's are overpriced and don't provide very good damping.
    Spax are comparable with the Konis that are available and aren't much chop.
    GAZ are good.
    DMS and Murray Cootes dampers are topshelf. The Billies are just as good.
