Alright all this info made me not want to install these now. ****! So if the sleeves are useless and the springs are useless then the hole thing is useless. I compared the sleeve to a friends Teins and you already know what the outcome is so now im stuck with a piece of ****. Hopefully I can sell em on ebay . I wont post here because i dont want to give my POS coil overs to a member. Maybe some ricer will buy them

The sleeves are less useless than the springs, but both are pretty shitty. "Maybe some ricer will buy them" is exactly the right mindset when buying a product like that.

I've had ebay coilovers with agx's for about 40k miles. My spring rates are 450/350 and are definitely an improvement in handling, though the ride is also definitely more harsh. They only lowered my car about an inch fwiw.

I still have the stock struts so after the paint ill buy some legit ****.

The reason why i doing paint first is because the car really REALLY needs it. Its like primer black on the bumper, fenders and doors then like the rear panels are faded blue. Super ugly!

Can I thread jack (sort of)? Are coilovers hard to set? I want to road race something and don't have corner scales, nor do I have time to fart around all the time. The other option is a pure race set up. But you can raise and lower the coilovers. Is it hard to get the balance right all the time?
