Any set of coilovers marketed for the 1M should have no problem with the stock 19's.

TCKR Double Adjustable is very suitable for a weekend track car. Higher end would be JRZ or MCS.

Here an example of the JRZ setup, RS2 and RS Pro will be similar in clearance:

If more of a dual purpose setup, Ohlins R&T is excellent.

Good old days of AST. They don't make the same anymore...

thanks for all the links @HP Autosport, i'm looking to do a one time coilover system so also looking at rebuilding support and customer service in general, would you have a system you would recommend regarding this? i've heard great things regarding the above for ohlins and the jrz's, i've also been looking at the kw clubsports but i've read the support on these is not as great.

my issue with the ohlins is i'm concerned i'll put them on and find them too much a compromise for tracking, the jrz's look great, the pros looks especially tempting

anyone have experience with the intrax 4-way XL kit?

If you want good service and support along the lines of JRZ or Moton, go with MCS two way external reservoir. They are local here in the US.

If you want a higher end Ohlins with no compromise, look at this TTX based coilovers:

oh wow, those looks intense, and thanks for the suggestions above @HP Autosport, definitely preferring a US system just so support is easier

That is made here in the US with Ohlins TTX dampers so all after sales support will be right here in California.

An option to the JRZ would be the MCS. Again, supported right here in the US. No shipping dampers all the way to Holland for warranty or other issues.
