What do you recommend for spacers? I have my stock 17's on and I want to get the most drop I can with the largest spacer I can. I don't like the looks of a tucked stance.

I decided to put them on, I was debating because of this new safety check system in Hawaii been sitting in my closet for months. All the centers have iPads and they take a picture of your car. In Hawaii you need a recondition permit for adjusting the ride height of your vehicle. However, there's a guy who passed everybody, he was shut down for a while, but now he's back in business. I'll post up pictures when I install them, going for a slightly lowered look.

Hi: what is the price for the suspension kit? I am looking at the H&R touring cup kit @ $599.

What are you guys offering and why should I buy from you??

Right now they are $50 off. With the coupon code it comes out to $404.99 shipped to lower 48 states.

I think current users of the product within this thread give better feedback that I could. I can get all sales person on ya but I think there are plenty of honest feedback here.

If you have any particular questions I would love to answer those.

I installed my coil overs, (street edge) and i am happy with performance but i am extremely disappointed in the clunking noises they make. i changed my strut mounts along with the suspension and the clunking continues... if anyone can help me identify with is the helper and which is the washer everyone is talking about then i would appreciate it. what washer is everyone talking about? any picture of this washer? it probably what is wrong with mine...



Where can i get replacement washers if they threw them out?

Does anyone here has over 30k miles on them..

I've owned eibach pro kit spring/ bilstein sport

Very harsh ride.

Now I currently have H&R cup kit which I love it but the strut/shocks are showing signs of it being worned out specially when pushing the vehicle down by hands.. can easily be pushed down..


So I am the market for a new suspension. .

I want quality,durability.. I read the thread until page 60 then got bored lol.. too much

Anyone with 30k on them?
