    Guys, I'm at a crossroads and could use some help.

    The initial plan was to get KW coilovers for the 360, but turns out because the Novitec name was slapped on there in conjunction with KW, the system now is $5K+. The same suspension that went on my 997 was a little under $3K if I recall correctly. So not really willing to pay double for similar product.

    That said, for those who have extensively looking into modifying the suspension componentry of the 360, please share your findings on alternatives. I have heard JRZ makes coilover units. Anyone here have experience with the brand?

    I'm open to even just using aftermarket springs (if Eibach or H&R makes any) and also sway bars. For the sway bars and springs, I looked into swapping out the existing units for the CS versions, but coming across those are difficult.

    Thanks.

    JRZ is a very good brand compared frequently with KW.
    JRZ isn't as well known stateside but they are quite the brand when it comes to the worldwide market.
    I'm actually helping one of my good friends who is working on his 458 get a set of JRZ's currently. Take a look at the photo below.
    I received this photo from JRZ today saying that the 458 coilovers just finished pre-production and are set to be finished tomorrow.
    Figured it would be good to share.

    Look at AFCO's 23400CR springs at 400 lbs for the front.

    Unfortunately they are available only as chrome plated now at $60.00 each.

    However, they are a fantastic spring for the 360/430 front, and they are very cost effective

    You can adjust the ride height as you please w/o having to deal with another's pre-set ride height

    They can be painted with the right primer.

    These were originally supplied in a yellow paint.

    Apparently it's a ton of work to paint over chrome.

    Here is what I found-
    To paint over a chrome surface, start by sanding it so the paint is able to stick to it. Then, wipe down the chrome surface with wax and grease remover so it's clean when you paint it. Before you apply any paint, add 2 coats of two-part epoxy primer, allowing the primer to dry after each coat

    What’s the price of JRZ ? Are they available for 360 and what’s the website.

    I’m looking to put on coil overs to eliminate the faulty electronics.
