Default Cusco Coilovers

I am current doing research on put Cusco Coilovers on my my06.

Was hoping to ask everyone out there if they have seen any write ups on the Zero-A with the e-con2 (and g-force sensor). Or have opinions on how effective the e-con2 with g-force sensor would be for the extra money.

Any particular reason your goin cusco? I had tein flex with edfc in my last Subaru. I find there a better coilover in general than the cusco I'm using now.

I'd lean towards Tein, bought a dud set of cuscos, learnt my lesson. Teins have a warranty in oz too, don't have to send them off to Japan to rebuild them either.

Thanks for feedback guys.

what model cuscos are/were you running?
what were the issues you experienced?
were they used for daily drive with the monthly weekend track day (or were they used harder)?

I think they were zero's, bought mine second hand though, heard good things about them. But in the end the Teins, which are designed for our roads, won out. Have u thought of bilsteins or KW? Pricey tho.

Just asking but what are you going to use the car for? If it is purely stance/daily with the odd track day HSD TT's or HR's are awesome for the money (sub $1.5k) and will be more than okay.

Bilstein PSS9 if you can get them. They are discounted atm from ProSpeed Racing: Bilstein PSS 9 Coilovers suit Subaru WRX 01-07 - Pro Speed Racing

$3k is pretty cheap cheap for that kind of quality. That or as said, KW V3's and you wont be dissapointed (though if you're going to get that kind of suspension, get it on down to a track asap haha!)

Advantage with going say TEIN is that most of their stuff is rebuildable so you can save a little long-term wise.

If it is any help I have the older Cusco 2E's + E-con in my car. All I'll say is Japanese people have a really weird take on settings. 1 is the "softest" setting yet it is the most uncomfortable (i.e. you'll think you have hydraulics the amount of bouncing they do) while 5 is the hardest and feels fine though I use 4 for pretty much everything. I bought them second hand but if I had my choice again I'd probably just save up for Bilsteins/KW/DMS40's given what I want to do with the car.

The Cusco E-CON allows damper adjustment as you know, while the G-sensor is an add on to the E-CON to adjust dampening according to the G-forces on the vehicle.

The new Zero As are the latest from Cusco, feedback in Australia is not possible as it has not officially touched down here. Very popular in Japan.

See Mao (Evolution R), ask for special price. Get the awesome coil overs in my STI & track car. Sub 1.2K, fitted, job done?

Do you need the address?
