If you've got money to burn and demand some of the best out there, those are quality manufacturers. Otherwise, read around in the suspension subforum and see what you can learn.

AST's are pretty nice too

I've heard good things about JRZ. Whatever you do though make sure they have low speed and high speed rebound adjustment.

^ya I think they're made in the same factory as ohlins, just rebranded.

Guys I don't want an extreme setup. How about bilstein HD. Will they fit mine? Question is, is the mounting the same between mine and a LGT?

Couldn't find a dealer for t bilstein in Dubai. Found D2 and Tein Basics which fit my budget. Leaning towards t D2s as they have damping and cambers adjustments. On t net read some reveiws that t D2 had issues with corrosion and leaks, but t guy here ensures me that it was in 2005 and they haven't had probs lately. Teins only height adjusment but come with better reliability.

Your opinion pls.

You get what you pay for. I had Tien Basics on another car of mine about 10 years ago and I liked them, I didn't have any complaints.

There is a specific suspension forum here, you should try looking there for some more options
