don't buy coilovers unless you buy the expensive ones, like teins,etcThe sleeve types are bad, and makes the ride bumpy. Just get Teins springs, they are awesome.

eBay no name Coilovers = thumbsdown

It's best to go named brand for Performance parts...
it would probably better going back to stock till you can get a tried and tested name brand one.. happywink

if it was something like a strut bar located where the struts are suppose to be (not like the srut bar that mounts all the way to the rear of the trunk thumbsdown) then it would be fine as a strut bar is just a bar.. tongue

Sell them... i had them and they were the worst ride ever...you have to sell them, you have no choice...try contacting the dude you bought them off ebay from and maybe get a refund...thats what I did and I got some intrax lowering springs, and they are sick.
