Lightbulb New Lowering Springs

found these on ebay. they must be new bc ive never seen them before but at only $150 shipped they might be worth checking out.

Thoughts?

Looks like an average drop, Similar to eibach.

They seem to have a good selection of aftermarket parts for various cars too.
Maybe it's worth a shot, I just wonder how stiff they really are.

Im also curious about the stiffness. I've been waiting for you to see this thread and give me some input bc I knew you would. Haha but looks comparable to eibach but with a lot lower price. Can you think of any issues? They have the spring rating or something in the description on that eBay link but I have no idea what it means. Lol

Yea I saw they had the spring rate listed, but I can't find what it is for any other set or stock springs so I have nothing to compare it to. The picture looks like a stock photo, they don't look like the springs I got. If those are in fact what you get then they don't look like progressive springs, which can make things bouncy.

I read ther customer reviews and they seem to have a lot of complaints about fitment with some of their performance parts. Couldn't find any reviews at all on those springs though. I would be a bit worried about fitment and longevity.

My biggest concern was longevity and if it's a progressive spring rate.

Well they stated their is no warranty. I would go with something reputable in my opinion when dealing with aftermarket parts like coil springs. I got my Eibach springs for $224 on autoanything.com with free shipping. They had a promo going 15% off and orders over $100 was free shipping so it saved me about $35 bucks.

Ya and they have warranties in case you need them replaced for whatever reason and they are guaranteed.

IMO, Jdog, i wouldnt chance it cuz if something isnt right or they fail to meet up with the specs, your out $150 plus you have to buy new springs and a new alignment.

So put the springs in, it is firm and a little bouncy. A little bit honestly I mean you are not jumping everywhere like a guy who blew the shocks. Fitment is good, quality is fine. Ill put photos up below today or tomorrow.
