Editor’s note: 3 years ago, Australia Mechanic Jesse Gilbert shared his MaXpeedingRods coilovers experience on carthrottle.com. 3 years later, MaXpeedingRods build its Australia site. On MaXpeedingRods new Australia Site, Check out this set of BMW E36 coilovers he bought.
As a young guy with a tight budget, it can be hard to find quality without spending a decent amount. I was desperately in need of suspension due to the front dampers giving out and the rears beginning to leak. I jumped online and searched all I could. At first to looked like it was either 350 dollar racelands or the top spec tace coils. Eventually i cane across the MaXpeedingRods coilovers.
I couldn’t find any very useful information on them so here is my experience.
Upon arrival (2 days earlier than estimated), I was surprised with how well the suspension was packaged. The only draw back being the foam which managed to get all over my room. Then began the install. As a first for me the suspension was surprisingly easy. The MaXpeedingRods suspension fitted perfectly with no need for modification on either the car or the product.
The damper adjustment is noticable and definately useful for dialing in the ride and handeling. The only draw back of this suspension so far is the right front currently knocks and clunks while turning at low speed. After some research i found out this was likely because I either moved the suspension incorrectly when adjusting height or the bottom stopper is binding to the threads below.
Overall I am impressed with the quality of the product.
