Does anyone have experience with the MMR front coilover setup. I was interested in buying them along with their lower control arms. Good, bad exp? I was also looking at MM coilovers, but they are more $. Should I just go with the MM? Car is DD with minimal track time. Mainly just looking to improve overall handling. Thanks.

For a DD, I would not go cheap. I would spend the $$$ on the MM stuff. I have the coilovers from MM and they are great quality. Just make sure to match the spring rates with the correct shock combo and the ride will be great!

I want to say the MMR kit is the same as the GMS piece/kit. I'm running a 375 rate spring on mine and in I guess 3 or so months can't complain at all.

I'm running Bilsteins and the C/O sleeve is just a tad large for the strut body. I'll probably be laughed at and ridiculed for saying this, but what I did was just wrap a few rounds of grey duct tape around the strut body where the coil over is to make the fit just snug where it slides over and stays in position.

While they didn't rattle or bang withOUT the tape, I was changing springs again and thought that might be a good idea. So far so good.

Find a shock/strut that you like and then get the coilovers. I went with Bilsteins a few years ago. I really like them but once I save up a few pesos, I'm going to switch to Konis

I ended up going with MMR lower control arms, and MM coil over kit. As for how well does it work, who knows I recieved the arms a couple days ago. For the price I am very happy with them, we will see how the work.

I chose to go with MMR arms for two reasons price, and the fox arms come with SN95 balljoints. I have not read of anything bad about the MMR arms, except some claims that they are GMS items. Even if that is true though, I have not seen a single complaint about GMS front control arms, so we will see.

As for the coilovers, I went with MM because I was worried about how loose the MMR might fit.

The MM coilovers are worth the extra money. Take it from someone that had to buy twice.

I guess I will wait to get the MM coilovers.

Icey: let us know how the MMR control arms work out. do they all come with sn95 balljoint? I am running fox spindles, will they fit?

thanks for the responses!

I had a set of the MMR coilovers and never used them because they were unable to verify the spring rate because I could not give them the original inv. number (I bought an unused used set and wanted to know the spring rates). I gave up on them when phone calls and emails got me nowhere. There response was that they change springs from time to time and without the original invoice, it would be impossible to determine. I bought the MM's and haven't looked back.

Well, why would you change your entire coil over kit....when you just needed a universal spring replacement. :confused:

I questioned the integrity of the product itself when I received poor product support from them. I feel that they could have helped me more and didn't. Offering "street,strip, and track springs" instead of supplying actual spring rates in their product descriptions turned me off as well. I wanted to know my starting point in case I wanted to change rates later and on mm offered me more product support in this area.

Yes, but that wasn't my point. When asking for help, their first response was for me to wait a week for the internet person to answer my question. My last response was that we changed springs recently, therefore we can't help you. They didn't even offer to say well it could be this or that-nothing. They weren't interested in putting forth the effort, let alone the extra effort.
Sorry for the rant. I just will not tolerate bad customer service.

the tab decided to let go on the drivers side strut on my 4cyl project mustang yesterday, so now I'm in the market for some struts and springs, and since I have been shopping around, I am wondering how these mmr pieces are holding up, anyone have any feedback?
