ride quality of "ebay" coilovers cheapies

Hi guys, I'm looking for some stiffer rear springs for my acura vigor. I see cheap ebay coilovers for sale. Has anyone used the cheaper no name brands? How do they ride? Ive used max speeds before, years ago and they were quite decent. Anyone, Thanks for your time. Ryan

suspension is something you do not want to cheap out on, the cheaper the price the cheaper the quality

haha, thanks for being my voice of reason guys. Your right. Right now Ive got a set of good sport springs in the car, and the ride is great. I'll dial out some of my understeer with tire pressure, or just get off my wallet and buy some stiffer springs. Thanks for the feedback.

a good set of springs/coil overs will blow your stock shocks just as fast...

its probably worth spending a little more or getting a used set of springs...

Yeah, Ive got a set I bought from Canuck motorsports, a Canadian company (duh) and they've been great for daily driving. The big girl may see some track use this summer, so I was thinking about a stiffer rear spring. I may just stick with what ive got. And hey, thanks for the compliment!! Its taken me a while to get used to the styling, but I'm fine with it now. There definetely unique. Its a White GS with black leather and a five speed. (like finding a needle in a haystack). The body is in excellent shape, so I'm pretty happy with it. I'd post some pics but, Ive tried before and havent had much luck. I do miss the tossability of the hatchback at the AutoX, but the Vig's got a mean torque band.
