    Arrow Help me with a coilover kit,please!!!!!.

    I have seen a FK/AK Street coilover kit on eBay for £210.They are also offering a fitting service for £125,including vat.
    It's for a full set and they seem to be good quality (German),but I don't know what to think.Does anyone on here know of them?,as,if they are OK,I might go down there,at those prices,and get a set fitted.FELIXX.

    Vehicle : SRi


    Engine : Z22SE (2.2 Petrol)

    Year : 2004

    Mileage : 137000

    I think paid around that for just Springs and shocks and I fitted them myself. 4 wheel alignment costs about 60-80 quid so it sounds like a bargain to me.

    LINKY by the way.

    EDIT : In fact if you bought B4's and Eibach now from LMF it comes to £310 and then you have to add fitting and 4 wheel alignment on to that.

    Thanks for that.I must admit that from the price,they do look tempting,but its the reliability that I am concerned about.I don't want to go all the way down to somerset and then find I've got a problem.I'd rather try and sus them out on here first,where there are people with a wealth of knowledge and experience when it comes to kits like these.FELIXX.

    Tried it with ref to coilovers but didn't get anything up about the FK/AF type,however,after the limited info,(of which I am very grateful for I might add),I am going to google the company and see what the cyberworld has to say about them before I make a final decision.A big thanks all the same,FELIXX.

    I have decided that they are a good deal.I Have had a look at some other threads about coilovers and they came up as well.I googled them and all the reports were very favourable,especially from the audi forum.They seem to be recognized as being of very good quality.
    I think they also look better if you are going to take advantage of their fitting service at £125.I know it's in Yeovil but unless you are going to do it yourself/mate etc,it's going to cost you more than that to just fit the fronts!!. (Google them yourself and see what you think before making a final decision). FELIXX.

    It's because when you change the struts etc,you are resetting the camber geometry angles and you need to get the tyre profile to run straight and with the maximum amount of tread in contact with the road surface,to get the optimum performance from the suspension.(or something like that!!).
