Is this site legit??

For christmas I bought myself Tein S.Tech lowering springs and now I need new struts. I came across this site and I just wanted to make sure there's no scam behind it or anything of that nature before I place an order. Has anyone ever order parts from this place? thanks

Excel-G Kit for Honda Prelude (1992-1996)

Also, does anyone recommend any other brands that may be better than these kyb struts?

Re: Is this site legit??

those are the same as OEM struts
and will most likely blow out on you
within a year.

You will hear that from a lot of luder's on here
Tokico blue's a very popular set up but to each there own

Tokico Blue shocks aren't really meant for lowering though, better recommendations would be the KYB AGXs or even Koni Yellows, I've used them all.

This is true but i have seen many people use them on lowering springs that have less than a 1.5 inch drop without any issues and since S techs only lower your ride a tad bit it would be fine.
Also if you really want to go cheap then get Staggs i have heard Good things about them. On Camaro, Lexus, Toyota forums. Even with lowering springs that have done a 1.3 inch drop.

Re: Is this site legit??

Im not looking for anything too expensive because they will only be temporary. I plan on upgrading to coilovers hopefully by the end of the summer. I just need something to last me till then or a little longer. Right now my suspension is f*#cked. The spring are only a 1.1/1.2 drop.

If you're only temporary maybe even scrounge the forums and see what's for sale used. But for that modest drop a cheap set of Tokico Blues should do fine
