A lot of Honda guys in Socal run Godspeeds on their canyon cars and track cars. Godspeed has a good reputation around here, but I do know that their coils don't hold up well to snow and road salt.

I had 70k miles on my Godspeed Maxx coilovers before I got the revalved. No leaks, never gave me any issues or weird noises, and my car sees track time about 5 times a year. 99% of issues that I see with Godspeed coilovers (And most coilovers in general) are user installation errors, especially when it comes to preloading the rear correctly.

I've had my Godspeed monomaxx coilovers on for about 10k now. No issues so far. They have seen cold weather but no salt or snow.

Haha, I thought they were too soft for handling purposes. I acutally upgraded the springs to 12k/18k. Handles like it's on rails. Love it!

what's your damper settings?? Reeses cars and I have been experimenting with these coilovers. Not scientifically, but to the best we can. Here's his video: Spring Comparison

3 clicks front and rear. Front loves to rebound like 3 times on a huge dip on the highway... Getting very annoying to the point I may take them off. What do you recommend (keeping in mind I have 8k in rear.)

oh wow really? My setting is at 35 front and 40 in the rears. I never found them bouncy. Once I upgraded the springs, then I was like ok they are a bit bouncy, but only on imperfect roads. You have it set 3 clicks from having it turned all the way counterclockwise correct? I think ride quality is subjective just like an exhaust setup.

I think the dampers on this kit are a good damper for street and track use. I wouldn't call them great. The issue you're having is rebound. I got the higher weight spring to help the situation, and it made a tremendous improvement on the car.

That being said, there's a guy that follows me on IG(my buddy Andrew, as I would call him), he replaced the GS springs with Swifts, but kept the weight the same. He said it was night and day. I noticed the springs on this kit can actually be slightly compressed by hand, and a 560/800lb spring should not do that.

This was just my experience and so far @15WhiteSi and my buddy Andrew.

You also have to find the dampening setting that you're happy with. I found that 35/40 was perfect for the track, 30/35 perfect for the road(for my taste). Limerock has some serious elevation changes, and the car for the most part felt glued to the road.
