Re: coil-overs (delichani)

there are 3 reasons to get suspension
1 - to lower the car
2 - to provide better handling
3 - to stiffen up the ride
with the coil sleeves, you WILL blow your stock shocks shortly if they aren't already blown. once the shocks blow, 2 of the 3 reasons you got the suspension will be hell. The ride will be like ass, and the handling will be worse than stock.
if you want to be low, just cut the stock springs in half and take out the bump stops. It might even ride smoother

that link that you posted is for dropzone coilover sleeves, which replace the stock springs. They still use the stock shocks and struts.
you HAVE seen a stock suspension assembly, right? there's a shock or a strut, a spring, a bumpstop, a strut bearing, and some mounting hardware. This kit replaces the spring, nothing else.

Re: (corstarxxx)

what's the valving on these shocks?
has the stroke of the strut been shortened to acount for the lower ride height?
has the strut bound and rebound been matched to the springrate of the coils?
the answer to all of these qquestions is "these are cheapass knockoff pieces of poo, they suck, and you will be pissed that you bought these in 6 months or less".
btw - ANY coilover sleeve is bad news. The only way to have a proper coilover spring is through a helper spring.
go big or go home. don't buy these. you'll thank us all later.
