I have a 98 s14 and will be slamming it soon. But can't seem to make my mind up about witch ones to pick up. I wont be drifting it, I just need something that handles smoothly. Thanks.

I hear good things about fortune auto...they are reasonably priced, I think you can get different spring rates, and they are rebuildable in the USA. They will be my next set of coilovers after my cusco's die

My cousin has a pair of Tiens in his Prelude, they feel nice. I'm not sure what others have to say though.

I have Fortune-Autos, they are nice.
Just make sure your preload isn't too high and it should be comfy. Not even my grandma complains haha.

^ If you want to spend that kind of money, get some nice used ones. Everything new for that price is garbage.

What I would recommend for comfort:

Fortune Auto
JIC
Apex

What I would not recommend for comfort:
TEIN
Powered By Max
Anything < $1000

All of the ones listed are of good quality though. Can't speak for Stance or K-Sport though. They have mixed reviews. I would try riding in as many cars as you can with different setups. Also look into a nice spring/strut combo.
