MMI vs SoT front coilover
I think I have my front coilover decision narrowed down to two options, but there are some fundamental differences and I am hoping for some useful thoughts from the community. I think I have narrowed it down to Mike Maier Inc and Street or Track systems. Obviously, the MMI system is a little more expensive (about $500 once you add the front sway bar to SoT) - but I am curious about thoughts on some of the other fundamental differences.
Both systems include upper and lower arms, coilovers with quality shocks, new strut rods, etc. Some of the primary differences I have noticed are:
- MMI upper control arms are offset, SoT are symmetrical
- MMI coilover lower mount is on the upper arm, SoT is on the lower arm.
- MMI uses JRI shocks, SoT uses Bilstein (I am sure both are great)
Can anyone provide some thoughts on the reason and impact of these differences?
Almost forgot some info I know will be asked: The car is a 66 coupe with a well built 302, possible 347 in the future. I don't intend to track the car, it is primarily an aggressive driver with occasional autoX a possibility. Wheels are currently 17, considering 18 once I flare the fenders and need wider tires.
Look fowrard to your comments (most of them)...
