Megan Racing Coilover Sleeves

So I have a chance to get these Megan racing coilover sleeves for a real low price from a guy who had drivien only 1500 miles on them, my stock suspention is bad so I need a quick fix and moneys on a budget. Any reviews on these coilover sleeves? I am only planning on dropping the car about .5 of an inch. I will use my stock shocks for a while even though they r bad.

save your money, those coilover sleves won't fix your "bad" suspension and will likely make your problem worst. cheapo sleeves + bad shocks = have fun bouncing to the moon.

Reason is due to the offset on my wheels and the roads aren't the best on my commute everyday. So if I could get the coilovers for $40, that wouldn't be a good deal, what if I got new shocks with these sleeves? What are other alternatives

just get new shocks or save your money up until u can afford coil overs.. U know how many people say there roads are crappy a .5 drop really wont do anything for your car might as well just leave it stock..

I see guys with ****ty roads esp NY that are driving dumped!! but what ever floats ur boat just get those and change out for Koni, Tokico etc etc

My oem springs are sagging and the back of the car already dips, won't the Megan coils help alittle, it's just for a daily driver and if I can I will be lowering more then .5 I'll try to see what's te best height for the wheels I have I just want to close the finger gap a bit. So $40 for them? R they better then oem springs that are already worn down?

Lol I wassent too sure; I'm saying camber kits aren't that expensive I just need to drop my car and I need to last about a year; in the past couple months I've spent 3x what I payed for the car in body/paint work, rims, etc ; so if Tokico HP and eBay coilovers would last that long I'm for it

Haha I figured they don't look that great; are they adjustable? And how much are you asking?

^ Do you want to bounce around.. because with those u more than likely will.

My suggestion would be to save your money and not get those save just for some lowering springs then and a new set of shocks Tokico, Koni, Blisten ETC... Tokico Blues will probably be your best bet since they are the cheaper then the rest that I listed or get coils sometimes u can find a good deal for about 350-450, or u can get F&F for about 545 brand new..

I wouldn't bother with the sleeves.. honestly, you might think it would be an improvement over what you have now for the first week or so. But cheap suspension just opens the door to more troubles in the long run, which means more money going to premature repairs/maintenance. It's like sticking a used band-aid on a wound.

If you don't want to wait and just want to fix the ride quality, go for the Tokico Blues or even some OEM-replacement shocks. Keep in mind you'll likely be spending anywhere from $140 to $200. I would rather save up a bit more and buy Koni Yellows though. One of the best dampers out there for the money.

oh you want to go that route? I meant save for coilovers. But if I went that route then what I would do is just research struts and shocks individually or combos that people are running and get feedback on them then choose.

I suggest saving your money and investing in better coilovers or a legit spring/shock combo.
