  • Alternate coilovers.......... :) Just a thought

    Just thought id share.....I thought this would be a decent alternative to expensive coilovers. Looks like there running about $80-100 a piece.. you could probably double up on then for the rears.

      I dont think they are............, and I was looking for the weights, but couldnt find em. Oyr coule probably use an ebay universal coilover kit for like a honda to make them somewhat adjustable.

        Are those designed to be helper springs rather than the primary spring?

            if you double up for the rear...you just spent more than you would for the right coilover

              I wouldn't. They look nice but looks can kill.

                These are designed to suspend the rear of a minivan. Even if you could customize your suspension to accept them, the ride height is not adjustable (and would be high), installing an eBay 400# spring China coilover sleeve kit would make it bouncy as hell (damper would no way control a spring that heavy) and with the included spring you'd have minivan suspension performance. They look like they could be useful, but they're not designed for your intended purpose.
