Icon5 tanaka sustec pro coilovers suspension used for $300

anyone heard about this coilovers? i found it today on craigslist but i dont know if its still good i looks rusted a bit im thinking about getting it next week when i get paid. I know i just got my kyb agx with ground control coilovers but im looking to get a full set coilovers because im thinking about lowering my car i mean really low. i tried it on my suspension last 2 days ago and it all right but i want more i know im being cheap right now but i think i might try it next week.


i just want some opinion on it good or bad what you all think about it thanks.

here is the link and picture

*Tanabe Sustec Pro S

There was a lightly used (<500KM) set of these for sale where I live for $350. Almost jumped on it but before I could someone else got to them.

Those on the other hand look fairly used. I wouldn't offer more than $200 and even then...

I researched these coils a bit and couldn't dig up anything/anybody ever using them on a 4th gen lude. What I did learn was they retain stock ride as much as possible, even when lowered 2.5''.

Re: tanaka sustec pro coilovers suspension used for $300

yeah im just gonna save some of my money get those ones it might take me about 3 more weeks to get it but its worth waiting i already have $400 and ill just sell my old suspension after i get those function and form. I might get the function and form 2. If i cant wait anymore i`ll definitely get it function and form 1 next week it should be fine for my Daily car.
