I am in the market for some coil overs. It seems that most supra owners use Tein's. I called Ground Control about their coil over package for the supra and they said they had two setups. One using KYB's and the other using Bilstein's. I was just wondering how the Ground Control (Bilstein) setup compares to the Tein coil overs? According to www.mkiv.com the Ground Control setup is stiffer than the Tein's. Let me know what you think if you have used either setup's and which ones you favor more.

Thanks,

I have TEIN RA on my car. All I can say is that it is a great setup for track/street. You can even select the spring rate when ordering the kit. and I doubt that Ground Control is stiffer than TEIN.

You should consider the HKS HiperDampers as well - their new setup is adjustable over a very wide range and has the same spring rates as the Teins. They come preassembled, whereas the Teins do not. I have the HKSs and am really happy with them (daily driver and racing).

The HKS seem pretty nice, but the price was a little bit more pricey than the Tein's. Man I wish some local guys had these different setups so I could actually feel them installed on a car.

Thanks for your input.

I thought Ground Control allowed you to select the spring rates as well,there's a pretty good spread between the stock/Eibach rates and the Tein rates which work so good on the track,you should be able to get something that fits your needs.
Can the Ground Control apps.be used with Bilstein shocks?
IMO there just isn't a better all around shock than those.

SCV8, Ground Control actually sells their coilover setup for the supra with the Bilstein's and yes they did say that they were adjustable. I am trying to find out which coilovers are the best bang for the buck. I am trying not to get caught up in all the brand name hype.

thanks for you response.
