      So these guys have 5 different listings stating they have more then 10 in stock but have no coils?
      Wow
      That is just retarded. He emailed me and simply said
      (coils are out of stock. 6 week wait)
      Seriously that is just wack. I demanded my money back. Guess i will be buying fk's. Damn!

      i dont want to sound like a douchebag but andrew's right.

      i've had a lot of different coilovers. and these are my favorite. not even just best bang for the buck.
      they're quality. compared to my others coils it feels almost like stock. i'd say they are as good as my H&Rs if not better because of how they are designed. my car is on the floor and i forget because of how smooth the ride is.

      If you've seen joeslow's car, you had better as sh!t take this as wisdom.

      Because of TE7two and joeslow's reviews, i'll probably be getting some these in the future. Thanks gents.

      we should really start talking about how shitty these coils are so they dont jack up the prices.

      I agree 100% that the the coils are great. Unfortunately I can't wait 6-8 weeks. I was going nuts with the blown struts in my car. I put some old vmaxxs I had laying around and they are even worse! I just can't do it anymore. What also angers me is the way whoever runs the place has conducted business. It's been a crappy experience say the least.

      That sucks that you are having issues with their customer service. I had ordered from them a few times and never had any issues. Good luck.

      It looks like you may get your set. They come with the stifness setting in the middle about 16. I had to lower mine alittle due to the fact I am getting alittle old for this sport. They still ride fantastic and they feel good. I also did not preload them.

      Ordered my set through their website and it is much cheaper than going through eBay.

      $842 shipped vs. $1147 shipped (to Canada)

      We need to stop buying these for a few weeks so they go back down in price!!
      My buddy placed a order and got them within the week for 899.99.
      I guess when i purchased them for 599.99 he did have the stock but just didnt want to let them go. Thats pretty shady!! My boy ordered em 4 days later and all of sudden they were back in stock..lol...whoever is running that place is a douche bag. I messaged him the next day after my buddy got his tracking info. He responded with that he still didnt have any in stock and it would be about 6 weeks.
      I sent him a email saying thats funny since my friend just received his coils and never got a reply.

      The coils may be great but thats really bad business. If the auction was on ebay and i purchased them i should have received my order. Not tell me they are not in stock because he wants more money...Shady Shady Shady

      Yeah thats messed up. I pmed him and told him to lower the price back down to 550 and if he did me and a lot of friends would buy them. Within hours he lowered the price and I scooped them for 600 shipped to my door cant beat that

      Just installed these! Can someone explain how to adjust them? I know loosening the bottom spindle and screwing the coils into themselves adjusts the height.. But after doing the same amount of rotations on either side and measuring I still seem to have different heights in the front... the two top spindles are for pre-load but can they also affect the height as well? I figure i'm probably just rookin' out in some way...
