if theres anything i hate more then morons its morons that speak out of ignorance more then out of experiance

do any of you have this ? probbly not.
i have an obx shifter which isn't even close to the coil overs i know but that works perfectly fine for me so liek i said unless some one comes on and says "yea man i have that kit and it sucks ass" take the shit they say with a grain of salt

i had a shift knob and pedals. pedals fell off while driving, almost causing an accident. and yes...they were tight when i put them on. shitty universal brackets. i've taken them off since. i ended up giving the shift knob to a friend who later threw it out because he ended up cutting up his palm since the retaining screws/bolts weren't flush with the knob.

so from experience, OBX is crap.

Just get Tein S-Techs or Eibach, trusted company's that have their products on race cars and such. Don't buy knock offs when it comes to your car, buy the best.
