    Default Any other options other than FK Streetline?

    Hey peeps. Basically a front shock is fubard and pretty sure a back one is aswell.
    Now are there any better options than changing the lot for FK cheapo coileys that will only cost £180?

    It's more expensive to buy 4 standard shocks. And then there's the risk of a spring being broken too.

    Anyone?

    There are hundreds of better options than fks

    Depends if your wanting uprgades or OE replacement

    Check out names such as Bilstein,Spax,Monroe, KYB, or original GM parts

    A spring may be broken but only way to find out is to jack it up and check

    I've checked all of them out! What I'm saying is, is there any better options that are cheaper than the fks for a full set!

    to be honest if you could find anything cheaper than the Fk's they will probably be made from old cola cans & coat hangers

    Haha too true. Ive never paid less than £600 minimum for coilovers before so couldn't believe it when I saw these.
    But for around 300 for new standard shocks and springs I'd rather the coileys.

    if you look on the bay search for hot tuning coilovers, they're cheap & may be better than Fk's... i have just replaced full set of shocks & springs on mine with Monroe reflex shocks & gts springs... from the monroe uk online shop for under £300 with free next day delivery.
