Hello everyone, Has anyone ever used ebay coilover sleeves? opinions? pics?
WTF is up with your brakes?cant offer up any driving opinions just yet but the consensus on the "other" forum was that they seem damned good for what you pay for. Some of the brands have springs that are leaned so you might want to get some QA1 springs from summit (they are cheap price wise). For some reason the most expensive part on other more well known sleeve kits are the sleeves and perch.
I have a set of the bomz coil overs and the springs seem straight. I have them on some bilsteins and i used a bicycle tube doubled up between the sleeve and shocks. Also the set screw holes are too small for the supplied screws, take one of the sleeves to a local hard ware store and they should be able to get you the right size, or you can redrill and tap them yourself with new screws.
yup... got a set on my Blsteins.. the spring rates are 450F-350R and lemme tell you, these are probably the most underated cheapo coilovers you can buy.Mike, aka 90_mx, is currently building together, from what he says, a really good "coilover." ebay coils on bilsten shocks. 400lb/300lb spring rates if i remember him correctly.
Maybe he can chime in for more information about that setup for you guys.
