you couldnt pay me to run a set of the ebay coils on any of my cars. the spring rate is way to high, and gives way to shitty of a ride. it doesnt matter if you run the best strut made, your still stuck with a incorrect spring rate for the car.

I'm 24 and I weight 240, and my nephew rides in the car, but I will not disagree that it is a stiff ride,

Look into Yonaka Coilovers. Theyre fairly cheap, and probably wont cost much more then tokico + sleeves. I paid $780 with tax/shipping, it will be cheaper within the US I would imagine.

You can get away with ridiculous spring rates with the right shocks/struts.

Staggs are not those.

You can also swap out the ebay springs for springs better suited for the car.

But at that point, once you get struts worth a damn, might as well spend the money to do it "right."

How do your yonaka coils ride ? What's that actual drop ? Yonaka, d2, ksport and xyz are all around the same price after shipping . "950" and looks to me after my research is that xyz, d2 and ksport are all made from the same factory ? But I would rather get one of those then yonaka I'm thing because of the camber adjustment and the pillowball top mount .. so I guess it all depends on warranty ..
