    anyone know if they are decent to say the least??

    i was looking more along the lines of going with Skunk2 Pro-S, but at 679 for a set.. thats a little far of a reach for me

    anyone have any input? another brand with good ride and height adjustability to em?? thanks:confused:

    Fuck adjustment. Get neuspeed sport springs and kyb agx adjustable shocks. Smile. Win.

    Yeah, stay away from the racing springs unless its a track vehicle.

    Ebay Springs! They are cheap but even as cheap as they are they cost too much hahaha! They ride rough, they are easily adjusted for height but most of the locking perches are so weak that there are numerous stories of them breaking under the pressure of lowering your car.. But ya never know really... It is almost worth a shot just because of the price.. I used them for a few months just to lower my car a little over an inch and just like efhondakid the only problem i had was the rough ride... My cousin on the other hand had one locking perch break on his way home from work one nite (bad deal)! So if you are just wanting to spend $40 on hopes and dreams maybe you will get lucky...

    I have some number one nopi coilovers they are rough but they work fine but get a camber kit and an alignment or you will eat tires every few months.

    especially since they lower the car, they are basically hidden. it wouldnt matter unless it was a show car

    i have also seen people weigh a truck down then tie a chain around the suspressed coil so when the weight is removed it stays low. Now that is GHETTO!

    i have the Skunk 2 Pro+ line for my upper control arms.. the REALLY spendy ones, and my rear has Wicked Racing Toe/Camber arms on it w/ Megan LCA's (fucking hate them). so my camber is just fine with the current springs i got on there.

    the current springs i have are Maxspeed 1.6F, 1.4R. i like suttle drops with soft rides and these work.. only problem.. i wanna put 17's back on and with that drop i BARELY rubbed my fender liners. i wanna put coilovers on my car to raise it up to about a 1" drop f&r and leave my fender liners in.

    OOO i just found a set of Function Form F2's for a REALLY nice price.. anyone heard any thing on those or have experience??

    im tied between those and Sk2 Pro S coilovers, they both look good for the price.
