hm, i think ur getting ripped off, tein basic is like 1000 max, and installation is from like $150-$180 depending where you go, but if you are willing to put in $1500, try buddyclub N+

How?

^^ fill in the blanks

I have also heard good things about PIC's and for the price you can't go wrong.

If you have the money, you can't go wrong with TEIN either.

PIC FTW, for the price you can't get a better suspension setup IMO

I have been running the PIC coilovers for about 5 months now, and love them...Also PIC customer service owns

Omnis old style collars were known too have problems, such as cracking

but the new ones have a revised collar apparently, haven't heard of any horror stories on the new ones yet
