ok so maybe im a Noob, stupid, or just out of the loop. But what in the hell is this thing? FAUX coilovers? FOILovers if you will?
If i read this right accroding to ECS i can just slap these bad boys on my cup kit and now i have adjustable suspension?
1. why would they only work on bilsteins...what else do they work on?
2. explain to me why more people dont use this
3. i know im missing something cuz im too excited that i can go lower for this cheap right now.
4. i miust be wrong and its too good to be true

ECS Coil Over Kit-Front Kit
Budget minded coil-over kit that works on Bilstein shocks & aftermarket springs
Already have springs and shocks? Do you need to just raise or lower the front of your vehicle? The ECS Coil Over Add On Kit is designed to fit directly over aftermarket shocks (O.D of 1.5" or 40mm). Allows for +1.5"/-3.5” of height adjustment. The only limiting factor is your shocks &/or your wheel & tire set-up. Complete kit includes:
2 ECS Long Coil Over Sleeves (front)
2 Billet Aluminum Spring Perches (front)
2 Large Gold Anodized Billet Adjustment Nuts
2 Small Gold Anodized Billet Adjustment Nuts
1 Large perch wrench
1 Small perch wrench

ah chit, whats the difference tho. if it works on stadard shock n struts?
and im more than sure that my H&R out handles some 599 coilover system, even if it does not go as low
. I just want the front to come down a little more and these lowering caps are no where to be found and sometimes dont work....

I am more than sure with 5 years of legal driving experience you have no idea what cars are capable of stock let alone lowered.

FYI, they will work with the struts though.
I ran a similar set of "coilovers" in my mkIII, and first hand experience has taught me that unless you know what you are doing, don't touch these. They are no different than a GC threaded spring kit (in terms of equipment), and if you can get a decent set of shocks, they make for a good performance suspension. You can get them to go as low as you want in the front since you have to weld the sleeve to the shock body for proper installation while the rears are no different than any other aftermarket threaded suspension kit.

id be more conserned if the struts and shocks can take that kind of drop..and adding that price to your existing cupkit, and the price you pay for shipping from ECS you might as well get koni Coilovers
