Noticeable improvement over stock
Posted by Gio on Mar 7th 2018
First time owning and installing a set of coilovers.
Package arrived at my house in 2 days.
Easy install, Only issue I ran into was some clunking noise in the rear suspension, which was my error. Went back to tighten up my endlinks and problem solved. I would recommend tightening them a little more than the recommended torque specs.
New wheels looking good now that I got rid of that wheel gap. Very easy height adjustment and the dampening settings were a plus! Car feels a lot more planted and responsive while cornering.
Overall very happy with my purchase!
First Time Install

I originally was going to get the Solo Werks S1 Coilovers but I decided on these because of the amazing discounted price.
I run 18x5 offset 42mm. I didn't like how the wheels sat with the suspension until I put the Pro-C Coilovers on! So this was my first time installing any sort of suspension on a vehicle and I had set myself two days to work on the vehicle in case if I ran into any issues. I can't tell you how many times I lifted my car and lowered it to make sure it was perfect. I would say an extra pair of hands is a must and that you have the required tools available at your disposal, if you have power tools that a plus and it saves stamina.
I started with the back coils since it was easier to do and if I needed to stop after getting them installed I could still drive the vehicle (didn't have to). As far as how I set them I completely turned the thread until the coilover was completely compressed (bottom) which then made my car very flush (In my opinion). I was able to put almost two fingers under the wheel well. Also I tightened the springs a bit because I wanted a stiffer ride (all preference).
For the front I did it a little different. I measured about 1" of thread poking out of the bottom for a good baseline. Also, I tightened the spring to be a stiffer ride (all preference). The end result for the front was being able to put 1 finger underneath the wheel well.
As far as both tires went there was maybe half inch of poke from the sides which is barely noticeable! I love the end result though! I will say take your time if this is your first install of coilovers.

Although i was unsure at first, I took the plunge because of the features that these included at the pricepoint. The Coilovers offer a great street feel and stiff enough for spririted driving or light competition use. Easy to install, and they get LOW for hard parking at the shows too. I just Wish I could control the dempening from inside the car. Overrall a Great Buy!

Skunk2’s industry-leading Pro-C Coilovers for the BRZ/FRS feature 12-way adjustable valving, adjustable ride height, and a state-of-the-art mono-tube design. Thanks to threaded shock bodies, Pro-C Coilovers offer height adjustments independent of spring preload, which results in significant ride-height changes without sacrificing shock travel or ride comfort. Quick and precise ride-height adjustments can be made for dialing in corner balancing as well as for improved handling, responsiveness, and overall balance. Skunk2’s track- and street-tested Pro-C shock valving offers the perfect balance between daily driving and track performance and its all-new, shortened shock bodies and reduced shaft strokes help maintain adequate suspension travel on lowered vehicles for improved performance without sacrificing comfort.
Pro-C Coilovers feature vehicle-specific, carefully selected springs designed to dramatically improve handling, and a race-inspired, mono-tube design for superior performance. Skunk2’s micro-polished, mono-tube design and one-piece, forged shock bodies, combined with its precision-machined, oversized shafts and stainless steel pistons, ensure that each Pro-C Coilover is both responsive and durable. Each Pro-C Coilover also features the highest quality shock oil for consistent performance and triple upper and lower seals to ensure years of leak-free operation. The results are unmatched cornering grip, reduced body roll, and a feel of vehicle control and stability like no other.
Pro-C Coilovers feature hard-anodized, CNC-machined, forged 6061-T6 aluminum spring perches and CNC-wound racing springs manufactured from high-quality, SAE9254V spring steel. Each spring is designed to optimize the balance between comfort and performance and is custom-matched to their respective shocks. Pro-C Coilovers offer ride-height adjustments as low as three inches for an aggressive and sporty appearance.
Just like the entire Pro Series lineup, Pro-C Coilovers set the benchmark for suspension performance. Similar to how Skunk2’s Pro Series Camshafts and Valvetrain revolutionized Honda engine performance, its fully adjustable, Pro-C Coilovers do just that for enthusiasts who are looking for high-performance suspension components at an affordable price. Based on more than 15 years of racing and suspension tuning experience, Pro-C Coilovers feature the same technology Skunk2 uses on its own championship-winning road racing and drag racing cars.
Like all Skunk2 products, Pro-C Coilovers feature a one-year warranty and are designed to provide years of enjoyment for the life of your vehicle. Never wait for a coilover rebuild again; Skunk2 stocks large quantities of replacement dampers that, in most cases, cost less than a typical coilover rebuild. Purchase your replacement dampers directly from Skunk2 to minimize downtime.
