Max Speed Coilovers

As i posted in my last thread i got the tokico illumina shocks and this guy gave me for free some coilovers. i never heard of them before they're Maxspeed Adjustable Coilovers and i don't know if i should put them on. Just give me your thoughts about it... Should i put them on or not? By the way here's a link for the coilovers http://www.infinitracing.com/ADJUSTABLE_COILOVERS.html

I never knew max speed made coilovers. I thought all they made were springs for the prelude but I guess not. The springs are Nice. I can't speak for the coilovers though...

those are coilover sleeves. you want to be careful when doing coilover sleeves, because you need to make sure the rates on the coils and the shocks match. otherwise, your ride quality will suffer. this is actually the biggest reason why you hear people say coilover sleeves suck. in reality, it's because they didn't do their research to match the rates. if you don't know your rates, look them up... or just get a full coilover system so the rates are matched from factory.

typically on the product literature that came with it. i remember it not being on their web site. or you can just call their tech support folks up.

i've never heard of maxspeed either but i'd say just use it as paper weight and get some decent spring or go ground control for custom spring rates
