Only have about 5k miles on these but the wife doesn't appreciate the sacrifice in ride cushiness as much as I do so I'm looking to go back to a spring and damper setup.

These are the 441 + swift kit 8k/8k and I do have 2 adjustment extenders for the rear as well as the FEAL branded coilover covers for winter.

I'm pricing these to sell at 1000. I'll ask for an additional 100 if shipped to the continental 48 and will eat any additional shipping charges beyond that.

The only wear are tool marks on the adjusting collars from the wrench as I changed height and preload.

how much of a ride height lowering does this coilover system induce? ie, i don't want to lower my car that much. do you have pics? have the male slider suffered any dings or scratches from rocks?

thanks

Wondering same thing. Not interested in lowering but want more dampening and hopefully some resistance to body roll.

I've got it set about as high as I'm comfortable going though there is still some room based on what FEAL told me was a tolerable amount of threads in the body. I haven't pulled the coilovers off yet so I haven't visibly inspected all the threads but I've only been driving on pavement so I don't expect there to be any damage. The only visible wear are on the locking collars from the tool marks of using the wrenches to adjust preload and height.

Here's as it sits.

It is certainly lower than factory...it's nearly at the same height as RS-R springs. Definitely more dampening range. Full soft is pretty comfortable but bouncy. Full hard is...HARSH. I have it currently sitting at 10 (0-30 range with zero being softest) and it's a pretty good comfort level for me personally..but still more harsh than the wife is happy with. Body roll is like..not there at all. The thing turns in really, really well.

Nice! I have to ask what kind of wheels do you have?
