As the title suggests I am after some help from anyone that is running MCA coilovers. I need more low and MCA's have been recommended to me as some of the best.

Basically wanting to know if someone can tell me about them and potentially take me for a ride in their car to get an idea of how they feel. Will buy beer or coffee depending on time of day :)

My car is a daily driver so looking for good comfort as well as less boaty feeling.

TIA

Have only heard good things.

If no one is on here talk to Lance or Mick at Techworkz and they might stear you in the right direction. Also worth a call to MCA from all reports stupidly helpful.

Yeah might have to have a chat to them about it all. Next time I go out there I will ask :)
I think they do a few MCA installs out there.

If it helps, I've had many suspension setups. From stock to STI struts with pinks, to Yellowspeed coils and tein coils. I have MCA Blue and it's one thing I will never upgrade now. Best suspension out there for the price IMO.
Also the service they provide is unbeatable. I thought I had a knocking sound from the rears, I bought them second hand but I asked what they thought it might be. They sent me a brand new set of rears no questions asked. It turned out the knocking was something else anyway. Customer for life :ok:

Can't help but keen to hear about the results.

I was going to ask Mick what he recommended need time I'm went in but I don't really have the cash for coil overs any time soon so no rush for me.

If you are just after a bit less body roll then a upgrade rear swaybar might be all you need. And maybe some Swift Springs to firm it up and lower a bit. My mates shop in Fyshwick is an MCA and Ohlins dealer too.

If you want decent handling with good comfort then get mca xc.

I have a 22mm rear sway bar in at the moment and its reduced body roll hugely, as people have said here before best bang for you buck mod you can do! Still chasing some more handling and also some low as well :)

I am leaning towards the x-c set up to keep a good amount of comfort in the car. Reassuring to hear that MCA are great to deal with as well.

Can anyone comment on the difference between the Blues and X-C's?

I've got MCA blues in my SG, Good ride still, reasonably firm and I don't find them bumpy at all unlike bc golds.

Techworkz got my set sorted for me

I have run Tein Super wagon for a few years If I was going to go down that road again today I would be looking at MCA as the reputation is well deserved. Nothing wrong with my Teins either.
