Second vote for KW V3 coilovers....I am buying a set for my SC300 soon. I had them on my NSX and loved them.

So, Chris, what did you decide on?? Sorry to read your current struts were leaking... The Tein model I went with seem to be no longer available ..... I like them but you have to adjust them for what you want in a ride....

Hey Walt, think I'm going with BC coilovers. If I could afford the $2k coilovers I would. The SC is going in for 2nd Tbelt tomorrow. Then going to get engine and trans steam cleaned on the 8th. Then FINALLY pick up coilovers

sounds like you set the pre-load too high if you do that you end up with a very stiff coilover. If you want a stock feeling car just remove the some preload.
