    Default Good suspension for 2001 zx3? quality but not to expensive

    Hey,

    I just bought a 2001 zx3 that desperately needs new suspension overhaul. I was just wondering what would be a good quality suspension kit that would be in the 300-400 dollar range. I saw that the ford racing suspension is like 305 bucks on fordracing.com I wasn't sure if this was a comfortable suspension cause i know it is racing so it is a lot tighter. Its a daily driver currently until i get money to put into the engine so if its not unbearable i figure i would go with this. Wasnt sure if there were other good suspension kits out there. Thanks for the help in advanced

    Nick

    If you want a good quality basic kit then go with the Ford Racing one. It comes with springs and damper and will lower the car about 1.5". If you don't want it that low then go with the SVT kit it is only .75 drop

    Is there any other difference between the svt and racing suspensions? or are they both kind of stiff suspensions with different lowering levels?

    Their are both kind of soft, but still a increase in stiffness over stock. Its not much just like 20lb/in more but they are still more than capable of offering a pleasant sporty ride for daily use.

    but yeah the Svt and the Ford kit both ride very similar, just one is a tad lower than the other.

    Alright thanks. Should I order this from the fordracing.com site or are there any other places that offer the same kit a little cheaper?

    ^ best answer right their. You will be hard pressed to find a better deal on brand new OEM stuff elsewhere.
