Default Help me find Xidas

I have decided to purchase a set of megan ez streets for my 04 msm, wondering if anyone on here knows where to get them for less than 700 shipped. That was the cheapest I found at thmotorsports

Why? They're kind of a **** coil. If your bilsteins are blown, find some decent used stock suspension on the cheapest coilovers you can find, like ricelands. Until you can afford something decent.

I'd rather have EZ streets than half of the **** suspension that people still throw on their miatas. Racelands and Konis being two of them...

Seems like this was the consensus between the ez street threads I've read, not to mention the fact that it seems like I can easily get my desired rideheight out of them. I'm looking to go fairly low, but not "I'm not gonna make this speedbump" low.

For the haterzzz.. could you make an alternative suggestion within similar price and performance boundaries? (saying spend more to get X coils is not a legit argument

I've got some JICs for sale @$700. East coast might be a little more for shipping, but I don't think it's a terrible price.

They're not out quite yet, but the new Tecna coilovers from 949Racing should fit your needs from what I hear.

Not on a huge budget constraint, at least not enough to want to rebuild my stock shocks or whatever. Also I didn't see Megans listed on that thread, although there was some useful information on there.. I'm still convinced to go with MeganEZ unless someone or something seriously convinces me otherwise

I'm having a normal day. just getting tired of your idiotic threads. we were really nice to you at first with your moronic "is my stock msm suspension not stock? " thread. you took that as a sign of weakness and catering to stupidity and now making multiple threads each dumber and ricier than the previous. knock it off.

dude stop being mean, do you need a hug? maybe a friend...? cuz you must not have many

and speak for yourself, everyone else has been nice and helpful besides you. Also what is so dumb and ricey about asking a ******* wheel fitment question in the god damn suspension and wheels area? If you know the answer to a questions whether dumb or not, why not answer it? THATS THE POINT OF A FORUM! at least ignore it if it grinds your gears so badly. No one thinks youre cool, stop being mean... seems everyone but you learned that half way thru high school.
