Last picture doesn't work
Besides that, looks awesome! The orange flows well with the car, how much did it drop the car? Looks like a good 2" to me thumbsup

Another question, how much did that cost?

thanks! the drop probably is a good 2 inches. I bought them from another person on NC.org for $400+ stocks. the coilovers were practically new. i got such a good deal.

Wow very nice actually a nice set of JIC coil overs over there I almost bought them decided it was better to pay off the 1500 dollar credit card bill I had before interest takes place on it. Sigh I kind of regret it but oh well decided to be responcible.

Going to get a decent set of coil overs next I think but I keep going back and forth.

With this current sutup i'm closer to becoming track ready. The ride if extremely stiff, can't wait till i can try them out at the track.

$400 wtf I got screwed then cry Mine where $1800. After a couple of weeks the ride gets softer, but i recommend you set the front to 1, 2 is way too hard for driving on the street especially if you have bad roads.

Do you have to take off the whole coilover in order to lower it more. I kind of want to lower the front 1/2" more.

Are you gonna get the front pillow mount? I highly recommend it smile

400 is a rare deal. 1800 seems like a bit much you can get the JIC Coilovers top of the line for that amount of money.

yeah, i got them from a rpivate seller that really needed to get rid of them soon. i don't have the pillow mounts, what will they help do? you don't have to take it off to lower it just raise the car and use the tanabe wrench to raise those washer nut things.

$1500-$1800 is the actual price, it's expensive setup but well worth the money...but I'd rather keep both my testies

Before I bought them I talked to the US rep for Tanabe and he told me that it helps releave stress during hard cornering and makes the steering a lil more responsive. It also makes a lil more noise, kind of this woosh sound, but you get used it after a while. I actually like that sound thumbsup

The $1800 was w/the front pillow mounts, those babies are like $100 a piece eek
