are those decent? cause i can't find anything on them. but they look like they're not as bad as "off the shelf" coilovers.
like xidas but cheaper and aimed at the bilstein crowd that doesn't want to build.

"Still" would imply our e-lationship has a worthy foundation.

Well if you're gonna be like THAT, i'm going to point out that you use way too many apostrophes.

So, you let us spoon feed you for 173 posts, and now you're going to ignore all our advise to buy components that are inferior and possibly blown? Add $450 (plus whatever you value your time) to the bilstein total when you get around to doing it right the second time.

The shocks you are buying are inexpensive because demand is very low for them. Consider that as an indicator.

LOL, I literally posted a list of the parts I purchased, and quoted you a price if you want to buy them.

You're not alone. Every question he's asked in here has been fed to him.

And then dudebro sends me a PM with links to Shaikh's feel good chakra BS.

I'm good. I've spent more time and effort in this thread than it actually takes me to build one of these setups.

Your setup is aimed for NB. According to the dude below, Iíll need both extended top hats if I want to have suspension travel. And I picked out parts before you posted your list.
And for $200 more I can get brand new B8ís.

How can one learn if not asking questions? Not everything is answered nor relevant 3 years later. Half these links are dead or sites down. the thing that keeps forums from getting any attention is age. Nothing is updated. Nothing is current. Everything is dated. Itís easier and more noob friendly to go to Facebook and ask people questions.

Im still going to build them. Those vmaxxes are a distraction. Working out details at this point. Maruha site is pretty awful to use as I canít ďadd to cartĒ and price out shipping. And half the Japanese translates to butchered English. Goodwin tophats are way expensive. Flyin Miata are way expensive and only rear. You say ISC are junk so ignoring those completely. Whatís left? Exactly.
