    OK heres the scoop

    Someone here in Canada is selling his Tein HR suspension that has been used for 3-4 years and is starting to show some surface rust. He wants $800 Cdn for them

    AND

    Somone else is sellin tokico illuminas and skunk2 coils for $400-500 CDN. The coils are at least 2 years old i am told and not too sure about the shocks.


    What should i be looking for and which ones will be a better suspension setup in the long run? I will be mostly driving on the streets but will hit up the track in the summers occasdionally

    Save your cash and get a new suspension. Or buy the Skunk2 coils without the Tokicos and get a good set of shocks.

    tein HR's = :thumbsdown: Non adjustable sucks. Also, rust is not good. they are almost impossible to adjust when rusted.

    yeah dude- stay away from both those setups. after about a year, suspension gets tired. at least thats been my butt dyno feeling.

    and this isn't swap related. please post in the right place.
