    FK AK coilovers are absolute pants, i fitted them to my old GSi and they just couldn't handle the weight. Knocking and twanging all over the place.
    Any decent set of coilies are gonna be more than 300 notes so why not just fit some Pi 45mm lowering springs with standard shocks like i did in the end.

    I would need to buy standard shocks as i got the car with coilovers on it.

    I'll be going for some Bilstein B6s for mine when funds permit (so maybe never, then). They should compliment my Eibach Sportsprings nicely. I am not interested in coilovers personally. Just my view. But in the case of the FKs, you do wonder how they can be half the price of the rest. Paul :-)
