Also if you only paid $70 for coils why have you not had them fixed? you've had those stupid things for like a year now too.
These 2 things

Haven't had them for a year. Replaced one lower mount (130) right when I got them. Now they need another lower mount and shock ($300-315 shipped)

So your saying unmounted tires off eaps. Then mount summers. That's $60 bucks. Then unmounted and put on new wheels. Another $60. And then mount tires on raps again for another $60. Tell me how that makes sense?

Wheels will be in USA on the 14-15 this month if customs doesn't hold container.

1) so you're at $500 for great suspension?........whats the issue? also the other $300 shock is less than you spent on the wheels you haven't got to have.

2) I'm saying A. Get better friends/hookups and then B. yes do that. I know of at least 3 places here in GR that will mount/balance tires for me for Free-$20 depending how much of a rush I'm in and how busy they are.

3) You've been saying that every month since you ordered them.
