if you want good coilovers go full or i guess get ground controls or skunk2

yeah, bad choice. My buddy picked up a set and they ride like crap on stock shocks. Eventualy after about 2-3 weeks the shocks blew. Even with the new KYBs they still ride like shyt. Too bouncy and unconfortable. Not worth it.

Spend the money on good springs instead. H&R, Neuspeed, Tein, etc. Cheap coilovers ride like crap in most cases and corrode very easily during the winter.

Don t do it !!!!

Someone is selling omni power full coilover for 500 get those you won't be dissapointed the difference is amazing. I originally had sleeve and they are terrible and blew my shocks after a year, not that you will notice when it happens cuz the ride is shyte with or without blown shock. If you only have 250 then get lowering springs 1.75 drop or something.

Remeber if you are going low you ll need camber kit too so plan to spend the money and do it right. Don t learn the hard way like many of us have

if you want a nice lowering i suggest a cheaper set of Progress springs. 2" drop, the rates are a bit stiffer and you can use them with stock shocks...and it still rides like stock

i have skunk2 coilover sleeves now on stock shocks (lowered about 2.3" all around...they're good springs but im getting nothing out of them until i upgrade shocks

spend a good $600-1000 if you want a nice suspension.

I had Toms for 2 years on my car..... 1.5 years with stock shocks. I think they are ok... nothing special and not that bad.... They are stiff coils so make sure that's what you want. I got them for 100 bucks so I thought it was a good deal for the money. I just got new coilovers so if you want my old ones let me know. Fit 88-00 civic (4 inch drop)

I had them, they're alright on stock shocks with like a 2' drop. Any lower and they're ****. On KYB AGX's they were ok, but garbage compared to my Tein S-Techs.

That price is a little high for the coilovers too. Look around they and you can find them for less.
