    Morning,

    As with most things you get what you pay for with suspension.

    Did you have a budget in mind?

    I don't want to hijack your thread but this is relevant ,
    why does this kit have the rear springs on the dampers when all 8L's I've seen have seperate springs and dampers ?

    Pretty sure there's a sticky specifically about cheap eBay coilovers and jardo gave a how to guide and write up.

    I mean they have a 2 year warrantee at least.

    If you would prefer to start with cost effective coilovers then try Jom least these have been tried hundreds of times by a3 & golfs and are mentioned on loads of forums they give a good ride but past experience build quality is not there and their life is short , you will always get a better product going to a well known brand like koni etc

    hope that helps

    As mentioned if you're wanting something budget then the JOMs are one of the better options to go for.

    Let me know if you need any info or prices.
