      Never any signs of prior damage. No precursors to the end result.

      Doesn't that saying work with just about everything? Im not justifying the coilover breaking, but there comes a line to every person where they have to justify the amount being spent with the vehicle in question. I didnt want to buy ****ty racelands that are gonna bounce all day with the prisoner built roads of CA, then again I couldn't justify spending a paycheck on coilovers. If i could do it all over I would have bought the H&Rs. Tried & Trued. Middle ground with coilovers is getting harder and harder to find.

      Cx racing coils have the same design.. Looks like I'm goin with h&r ultra ultra ultra ultra ultra ultra ultra ultra lows
      I highly doubt the lock collar was overtightened. I tightened all 4 myself, and would expect the others to do the same as this one. Plus the collar would have stripped out before you could even man-handle its tightness.

      It's all personal preference. Why get mad about someone else's opinion?


      I prefer B&G for damping and how they are designed. I've had collars seize an whatever but a replace body thru B&G is like one hundo shipped. Finding a replacement H&R is a pain in the

      Then again, personal preference and opinion. No need to hound who has the best out there, that's a never ending argument.

      I myself have had H&R UUL and B&G's and my B&G's ride perfect. But I still wouldn't say no to a set of H&R's. I just prefer the B&G's.

      it was a month or two after i got the car (4+ years ago) and i really dont remember who i ended up getting it from.

      i know the first couple distributors i called had no idea what Ultra Lows were so i called H&R directly and still had to go through a distributor but i cant remember who. let me see if i can find a receipt.

      First thought I had also, lock collar loosened, shear action ensured... I'll be checking mine more frequently!

      So I need to get two front struts as soon as I can, and I've called K-Sport twice now with nobody to pick up the phone.

      What are my options, emailing didnt work.

      My favorite set up for going low is some sort of H&R coil (Ultra low I, because I raise it all the way up for the winter), followed by Koni's, Bilsteins, and for a "budget set up" Koni yellow shocks with FK 60/40 springs.
