And it feels like crap. I had eibachs before it was much of a "comfortable" ride. I decided to go with ceika coilovers for the adjustability. Even with the "soft" setting its bouncey and floaty. I was told that itll need time to settle. I'll give it another week to settle.

Can you adjust the rebound? I have never installed a set of Ceika and really do not know much about them but bouncey and floaty most likely will not improve over time.

Rebound is done by adjusting the soft/hard setting?

Should help stiffer you set the harsher the ride, basically closes a valve that lets the fluid pass threw, if that makes sense? Nitrogen charged or just oil?

What spring rate did you go with?
Also which version did you choose? Sport, Drift, Rally, etc.

What made you choose that brand? Was it based on recommendations or pricing?
Price wasnt issue, pretty the same $$ with the other high coilovers minus KWs. I like the reviews on them from other car forums.

I ask for the "comfort" spring rate still getting details on the spring rate. Im not going to track the car or anything. I wanted the adjustability from coils. The eibach I had sat a little low for my..driveway lol half an inch higher would be perfect.

Spring rate might be soft, but you should be able to dial in the bounce in the car with you adjuster.

Can you trade in the springs if your unhappy with the rates? Compression and rebound can be adjusted but spring rate is what it is.

How much travel do you have before hitting the bump stops? Also need to know if they are hard or progressive.
Looks like you're pretty low, so you may just be whacking into the bump stops on every bump, which would feel like the suspension is made out of bricks. Gotta make a choice - low or comfortable. Pretty hard to get both.

That said, turning the valve all the way to, uh, "soft" or "comfort" or whatever they call it should result in a bouncy ride because the valving is too open to control the spring. Start clicking the other way until you get a happier ride.
