What brand are the ebay ones? I'm sure ebay themselves haven't yet branched out into a line of Prelude specific suspension parts.

I always say that with suspension, you get what you pay for. Your suspension is what keeps you on the road, so don't skimp on the quality. But if you're happy to run around on the ebay items, then I won't say anything.

well I don't know what name brand they are but
The color is red, and I have tried skunk2s also... but in realistic Ebay ones are better. yes, strut wise you get what you paid for but far as coilovers... I rather have stiff ones instead of skunk2 which car just jump around all over the place.

any other guys/gals tried ebay coilovers?

I have friend that bought the ebay junk a$$ coil overs for his car and they broke and he wrecked it, so GO AHEAD KILL YOUR SELF because you bought junk a$$ ****.

The only reason the skunk2's jump all over, is do to using them on stock shocks. Like I said before if like crap then buy it.

My lude came with Skunk2 adjustable lowering springs and they are def bouncy. They are not bad but they wouldn't be my first choice.
