    Probably because there are heaps and heaps of threads on the subject

    if your buying coilovers stay away from the budget fk street range. there ****! 50/50 chance they will be ok or they will fall apart in a week. i learnt this from experience.

    go shocks and 45mm springs, but if you insist on getting coilovers, spend some decent money.
