    I wouldn't put fk's any where nere my car again. Don't get me wrong some folk have had them and they have been fine. But I'm not the only one who regretted buying them.

    I might be wrong here but sure someone said the other set are the same as the apex budget coilovers. Might be supersport coilovers tho. Can't remember. If I was going to fit coilovers again I would try the second set

    I got a complete refund from Richard at venom. Was great to deal with. Mine had been on a matter of weeks before they blew apart.

    IMO buy fk street coilovers if your using your car as a static exhibit! Reckon I could knock up better quality suspension with 2 empty bogroll tubes and a yoghurt pot.

    Advise taken. I will stay away from the coke cans and yoghurt pots. We'll see what happens with the others....
