For the best ride, your stock setup is the best.

I doubt you'll find anyone who has had more than one on their G37 so nobody has a good objective frame of reference to compare one to another. All any of us will know is what we've used.

That's a good point BB...

OP_ I'm only guessing but most coilover you mentioned (except Tanabe) have dampening adjustment so you should be able to go from very stiff to plush on any set you buy.

For the best ride, I would say Tanabe Pro S-0C Coilovers will be your best bet. KW should be alittle stiffer.

What do you mean "best"? Best as in the performance or the most comfortable? My KW's are nice but they are stiffer than stock.

i have kw v3 .. progressive spring rate .. 14 way adjustable allows for enough control IMO .. i can live with it as a daily

if i had to do it again though i'd get the jic magic's just because they come with adjustable camber plates

Im selling my JICs. 15way dampening adjustable.

I heard the Tanabes are a good ride, but i just recently saw them on a car and saw they werent dampening(stiffness) adjustable, and you adjust the height by compressing the spring. Which means when you adjust the height its also changing the stiffness.

The JICs height can be changed without compromising spring rate for a much better ride.

PM me if youre interested.

I'd suggest you think why you want coilovers.

If you want just ride height adjustability, get go with the Tanabe.
If you want real performance, go with the JIC or KW V3.

But, I believe the Tanabe is the best bet for you since you consider the ride quality.

I got Megan coilovers on mine, thay are great. They are adjustable (stiff or soft). Great all around product, for the money. I just put 20's on my car, and the ride is a little rough, but I like it like that, no matter what you go with, you're going to have a little bounce here and there.
