there's basically a review there if you read through.
For $120USD shipped, it's DEFINITELY worth the money. I've noticed from the first time i drove it after installing the springs that it greatly improved handling in all ways. For instance, braking is soo much smoother now, it'll be even more if i ever get steel braided lines, but when you did hard braking on stock springs like it felt very uneven, especially cause the back lifted up a lot. With these i can't even feel the car lift up in the rear, and it seems that stopping is more smooth, and quicker. Of course it helped with cornering. The first hard corner i took almost had me off the side of the road cause i oversteered too much, being that i was used to turning on the stock springs, so it's a lot easier to make higher speed turns now. Also when i'm just driving in generel, wether i'm cruising on the highway or accelerating from a stop light, it feels like i'm going faster. I know i'm accelerating quicker, but to me it feels way more fun to drive, and i like sitting lower now. I have a better sense of control. All of this is said with me having STOCK shocks and struts. I'm definitely gonna get some KYB's GR-2's from here:
But all together it was worth it, easy install, me and another echo driver installed em in like 1.5hrs w/o a spring compressor! realllll easy.
I'm sure the tein coilovers are nice, but i dont have the money for that. I'd rather spend the $120 on the springs, $180 on the shocks, and $60~ for an allignment, maybe another $20 for a camber kit. Then when i get the cusco rear sway bar i hear that handling will be VERY nice.
So ya, the verdict is of course i would recomend them. I don't know about their long term reliability, but their much more stiffer and thicker/tougher feeling then the stock ones. They haven't completely settle'd down yet either cause i've only had them on for about 4 days. And oh ya, as far as how comfortable the ride is. It's kind of hard for me to say, but to me i don't notice a big difference. A picky person might say it's rough, but then they'd be comparing it to a mercedes etc. I would say that it's more comfortable than the stock springs cause there's less travel on the spring itself. thats how i feel
