Yes, ÷hlins Road & Track coilovers with stock 16kg rear springs, and 7" 8kg Swift in the front.

Stock ÷hlins front springs were 8" long and 6kg... but the car was prone to oversteer; with the 8kg springs, it's much more composed and balanced. And since the stack height of Swift springs is so compact, I was able to go down to 7"ers without any concern for coil binding.

That's perfect. Looks like a two finger gap all around?

Very nice. I think I'll be going fortune auto coilover with swift springs 9k ft 12k rear rates. Don't quite have 3k for the Ohlins/swift after my turbo swap and ported head.

Are the fortune auto coilovers any better than the M Performance Suspension?
