Hi!

I have a 2015 GTS and the roads here (Eastern Europe) are very different than US.
Tramlining is quite annoying but I don't expect wonders with 295/355 tires .
What I don't like is how the car feels at higher speeds when I hit expansion joints on the highway. Especially if the road is uneven, the car gives me the feeling we are bouncing and the rear end is a little wobbly.
If I put the suspension in Track mode, it gets better, but still nothing compared with what I would expect for this sort of car.

I am thinking of changing the suspension. What coilovers should I choose considering:

1. I drive 100% on the street
2. The above road conditions
3. I would like to keep the OEM selection of the 2 modes (street/track) although I might be willing to give this up.
4. I don't want to lower the car if possible.
5. I don't want to spend a fortune


I saw that there a couple of options:
a. MCS 2 way
b. some KW (not clear exactly what model)
c. BC
d. Tractive

Could you please let me know your experience?
Thanks.

I found this topic but the thread starter has an SRT, not the GTS.

Coilovers will be manually set. No electronic setting unless you find some highend ones but you are talking $$$.
A and B plus look at dual or triple adjustable ones and C = penske

Plus what do you consider higher speeds?

For the street there really is no wrong option. BC is probably the most common for street use because of the low price and ability to control the ride height independently of the spring preload.
KW has the V5 for the GEN5, but that is $12k (USD) and overkill for the street.
MCS makes a nice coilover.

Tractive is the only option if you want dual Mode. It can be tuned as well.

MCS with a 500/800 spring rate would be best for you use if you delete dual mode

I have Tractive on my ACR. You can tune the two modes to your liking. It's a good system for the street, but I have the ACR springs and they are still pretty stiff.
