Itís not exactly bouncing but more akin to say riding a bike with solid tyres as there is no give so the poor road surfaces give an entertaining drive.

Roads are terrible and with some good power you need to be on the ball when peddling a bit. It's just the inherent nature of coilovers where as the stock billstein McPherson strut setup soaks up everything... a coilover setup will demand steering input and feel bouncier if that's the right word. For a road car a good stock style Billstein setup is best.

But the only difference is that "coilovers", as so called, will have built in ride height adjustment, and many will also have adjustable topmounts. There's absolutely no inherent reason why the ride characteristics of a front coilover arrangement on an Evo should be any different to OE.

Hi Gum,
How's it going old pal? Did you know that when you put coilovers on the front of an Evo the suspension design remains McPherson?

I guess I'm just lucky/unlucky depending on your viewpoint. Our Evo is a third car and when I was shopping for that third car it was my Mrs who persuaded me to go and look at Evos.
Lucky? Yeah I have a nice Evo that my Mrs likes.
Unlucky? Yeah I could've bought something a lot less expensive instead.
Overall, think I'm lucky, because Mrs is as much petrol head as I am.

On the question of suspension - if it's bouncy, then it definitely isn't set up properly or needs maintenance.

Mine are Nitron R3's and were setup by Evotune, they work very well but driving on normal roads it feels like you are bouncing about in the seat.

I have never driven an Evo on oem suspension as I got these fitted before I even drove the car.

Why would it be “time to put them in the bin” when they are working as designed. There are no leaks to effect their intended use.
The suspension is stiff hence the bouncing in the seat.

I am no shock absorber professor, but I believe a coilover set up with limited damping adjustment will give a stiffer ride
