casey just get these, alot people run f&f1 they are great for the price

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Funct...Q5fAccessories

$630 for a full coilover with adjust body for height instead of moving spring perch like regular coilover, that means u can be slammed and still not bottom out shocks like regular coilover sleeves with struts :P

if u do get these, PLEASE DO NOT CHANGE THE COIL SPRING PERCH SETTING, only adjust the lower part of the body for heights.

yup its complete coilover, it replace from shock to spring to top hat, all u do it take out your old spring/strut and put this one in. its easy, i swap in all 4 corner of mine under 2 hrs using ghetto tools lol

ya this is as good deal u gonna get for the price! there is better gc/ky (about $900)but its not nessary for daily driver. this would do u more than enough! only thing u gonna reuse is your front fork.

body isnt really hard, but it does takes practice, i did few ghetto painting past few cars, got little hang of it.

man you get what you pay for. thats all i got to say about that ebay shit. just remember you save money when you do it right the first time. i recommend koni yellows and gcs. im running that and it cost a little more. i have never had luck with any purchase off ebay.

I bought d2's for mine. I've been very satisfied with them besides being a little noisy on bumps.
