  • eBay Coilovers!

    I am going to put cut springs or eBay coilovers on my car, or cut the Teins, because that's how I roll!

            Not my point. You're destroying the suspension geometry by cutting the springs, or by installing eBay coilovers that WILL fail.

              No they won't I have used them for years, I KNOW MANY IT GUYS WHO RUN THEM, THEY DON'T FAIL.

              And as far as cutting springs, not ALWAYS bad if you know what you are doing, my 240 had cut springs and ride smoother then my friends S13 with full Tein coilovers.

                You need to make sure the threaded collars have a tight fit on the shock body and the seat (ring). If not, the collars will split. This is the case with any aluminum threaded collar BUT the ebay pieces have a lot greater tolerance. And so far as the springs... well, if you're not competing then it's probably not a big deal if a 400# springs really rates at 381# - right? And if the collapse, well, that corner will just sit on the shock top. Or you can swap out the kit springs for real springs.

                  I am competing. And I might buy Eibach's to go on the collars. I have NEVER had a problem with them on any car.

                    Having I owned a few sets, I would sooner run stock then use that crap.

                      Glad you think so.

                      But I have had great success with them.

                      Damn noob.

                        There's something to be said for buying and installing know entities on race cars. Even the good $tuff breaks on occasion. I've crashed from parts failure, so I personally wouldn't chance it with the collars on track.

                          Like I said, I have been using them without a problem, and know people who use them without a problem, I have read stories, but half these stories are from idiots who mis-use items.

                            Yeah...that was the point. I wouldnt put JUNK on my car either.
                            Too many different reasons not too.
                            Ebay coilovers are best left to brokeass teenage ricers that need a 'drop' and
                            have no cash for quality suspension.
