    All I can do is wait and see!!

    my car is currently in the garage having new coilovers and bushes fitted.

    jom coilovers - 175
    bushes - 60
    fitted including all bushes and rear axel bushes- 300

    so getting coilovers for 535 including fitting. it will be interesting to see how they feel being the 'cheap' ones! i will let you guys know. i am hoping there good as it has drained my bank account getting them fitted hahaha!

    I HATE WAITING!!!

    Sounds good, if you have before and after pictures, even better!

    Car should handle nicely once fitted.

    that's not a bad price really mate, I was charged 180 all in for my rear beam bushes to be done at JKM, so around 120 for fitting the coilovers isn't too bad

    hope you like it!

    ok after picking my car up from the garage and having to spend another X amount on 3 new tyres! AND the abs light is now on the coilovers are on!

    i would just like to point out before i review them that before i was riding on standard shocks with lowering springs i have also used standard shocks and springs before this.

    these coilovers i did not expect much as they are so cheap i was a bit sceptical but after leaving the garage my car felt like a go kart! i took it for a b road drive and it handles each and every corner perfect with little to no body roll! the suspension is noticbly harder and also gives your car a very nice drop. when exiting roundabout it makes you grin all across your face! no underteer even in the rain! i dont know what they are like compared to other coilovers but to be honest i would quite happily get these again! and with one year warenty you cant go wrong! they are some times a bit clunky over drains but apart from that you cant complain!! although this is day one, but i will keep you all posted!

    it's entirely possible that when pulling the struts off at the front they've knocked the wheel speed sensors. these are fairly sensitive, and the plugs snap off REALLY easily when they get old and brittle. I know as one of mine snapped when i tried to move it to fit my shocks, and it's now got spade connectors, and silicon to seal it up!

    if the sensor is damaged, they're 50 from audi, or 16 from GSF!
