Ben – Hey Guys,

So I thought I would throw my 2c in on this convo about the Fortune Auto Coilovers.

I got a set off of Phill B back in January when I was swapping shells and decided to go coilovers, I thought for the price they looked good when compared to other brands as they have a bigger piston and the same features as anything else on the market.

Installation was simple with no issues.

Changing the height of the car is a breeze as they are base height adjustable, ive had to raise and lower the car a couple of times since installation and its been easy.

Ive also had to play the with the damper settings on both the front and rear due to dropping the car so low. Originally there was some slight scrubbing from the front and rear on the original damper settings (softest is the default setting).

So after a bit of mucking around with the dampers I have eliminated the scrubbing issues, and can actually feel the car sitting on the road harder when compared to the softest setting.

I had Teins in a previous car of mine and I like the ride of these a lot better, they handle hard bumps quite well and don’t send a massive jolt up your spine when you do inevitably hit a pothole, at the same time they are hard enough for the car not to scrub at its height.

Handling wise the car is awesome, almost no body roll and sticks to the road great.

All in all im extremely happy with them and would recommend them to anyone whose looking for an entry/mid level coilover for street/track use.

Yesterday PhillB came around and we got to test out his Fortune Auto coilovers. His 4 door R34 is absolutely dropped on these and we weren’t expecting a smooth ride but damn the ride was smooth as! Suspension absorbed all the small bumps no worries which made for a silky smooth ride.

Phill tells us they’re 2 clicks away from full stiff, so that leads us to believe that they’re more of a street coilover than anything for serious track work.

If you haven’t already, like Phill’s FB page: Phillb Enterprises and be sure to check out his site for more info: http://www.phillbenterprises.com/

I chose Fortune Auto based on some research and word of mouth, and was pleased to see some competitively priced local support. The shock-dyno plots of these units compared to other brands in the price range were encouraging, and on receiving the Fortune Autos, I was impressed with the fit and finish.

I have replaced a good but worn set of European coilovers fitted with Eibach springs (and helpers), and have been pleasantly surprised with the Fortune Autos which provide a more compliant ride and improved body control despite keeping the car at the same low ride height. Noise has been greatly reduced, and I’m yet to scrub the inside of the guards on compression or cornering; it really is a much better road car with the Fortune Autos, and I’m looking forward to trying it at the track soon where I think a little more weight transfer compared to the previous setup will help get the power down.
Based on my experience so far, I would recommend Fortune Auto to anyone looking for entry-level coilovers.  The quality and fit of the components made installation very easy on my car (FD RX7), and on-road performance and comfort have been noticeably improved.

  8. Jim says:

    I had the honour of being Phil’s first Volvo, as generally Volvo owners don’t try to stuff 20’s on their cars nor slam it.

    Firstly, I called Phil in to fix someone else’s mistake (never buy from Ozzy Tyres in Rockdale), who not only fitted wheels with the wrong offset on my car, but as I later found out, the wrong PCD! Phil, this is why you had such a hard time with those wheel bolts both on and off. They didn’t fit properly!

    Anyway, Phil was fantastic. He was careful and meticulous. He did a great job on both front and rear guards. On top of all that, he came to my location and had a great price. Can’t get much better. I can’t recommend him enough.

  9. Jason says:

    Professionalism, excellent customer service, explanatory, precise, affordable and a true gentleman. Phill’s work is top notch with a particular attention to detail.

    He assisted in getting my dream wheels to my door step, as well as fitting them to my S15 and transforming it’s looks completely .

    It has been a pleasure to deal with PhillB Enterprises and i look forward to sending you more work as well as making a return trip myself.

  10. Chris says:

    All I can say is WOW! Fantastic work; very careful and delicate during the entire process and he works on your car as if it were his own.

    He is a great person, offers great prices, the quality of his work is top notch and he’s mobile. What more could you ask for 🙂

    Awesome guy and I would recommend him to anyone! Will definitely be giving PhillB Enterprises another call when I get much more aggressive wheels for my Supra JZA80.

  11. Ian says:

    Thanks again Phil, you did an amazing job on the Liberty! Definitely looking forward to watching you work your magic on the Euro in a couple weeks time.

    Cheers,
    Ian

    AWESOME! work done on my MK6 GTI, now I’m able to lower the car with my 19″ wheels!

  15. Mars Cinario says:

    Talk about setting high standards!
    Phill’s workmanship and care to detail is second to NONE. My R33 has NEVER looked better and I know it couldn’t be in better hands.
    That coupled with the fact that it’s the first of it’s kind receiving the FORTUNE AUTO treatment make me very proud to endorse PhillB Enterprises.
    Thank you Phill, you’re a true gentleman!
