YES !!!

I bet those will tear up your car...


Real, quality Coilover kits cost around $1000

Look for brand names when it comes to springs.
Don't skimp on quality.

think of it this way...

if you skimp out on a quality paint job, it peels.
if you skimp out on quality tires, they wear quick, handling sucks.
if you skimp out on fuel, your car runs like crap.
if you skimp out on junk food, you get fat and lazy, and unhealthy.

imagine what happens if you skimp out on your suspension.
