I know that a lot of people would like to get coilovers for the Forte, there have been a few discussions about it around different area's of the forum. The more a company is contacted about a certain car the more likely they are to produce a component for it. Some times companies are even looking for one, Eibach wants your Forte!

So here is a list of contact info for some of the bigger brands out there. Many of them are local to Southern California, but not all. Feel free to add companies I did not think of. The more the word gets out the more product you will see.

Megan Racing - they make coilovers, springs, sway/strut bars, and exhaust, also they are looking for a Rio!

Tein - My favorite suspension company!

Eibach - they are looking for a Forte!

H&R - I have heard a lot of great things about their product and they already produce springs for the Forte.

Koni - they have their own challenge!

It may not seem like this will work, but Megan was contacted enough times to make a coilover for the Suzuki SX4, a car that sells in a year the number of Forte's sold in a month. Tein has a ton of applications for all sorts of low volume models, so don't be deterred.

Im not sure how these work. Are you able to adjust the height of the car electronically, or only with a wrench?

How what works? Airbags or coilovers?

Airbags rely on a compressor to pump them up. So you can air them down and up so you can electronically lower and raise your car.

Coilovers require you to tune them mechanically by jacking the car up and down.

I'd say for racing coilovers is key to dial in the suspension.

IMO airbags are more for looks/towing than performance. But that's not to say that airbags haven't hit the tracks.

Does anybody know something about "Tech Pro" coilovers, I bough a Koup with that brand, but I'm unable to find any information on them and possibly need to change some parts.
I can upload pictures if that helps
