$60 coilovers??????

I just found this on NOPI....anyone have any idea about the quality of these "coilovers"?...and are these even coilovers??

http://www.nopionline.com/nopistore/
455+3300 - ACCORD 03-05/TSX 04 - $60 - FREE SHIPPING

60 dollars and free shipping..maybe its worth a shot.

update: called nopi, theyre just the springs (thought so)

aparently this brand is NOPI's house brand (Number 1), and there's a 1 year warranty on the springs.

anyone tried em?

im sorry, but arnt the springs in our cars a progressive rate and not a linear spring. cutting a progressive rated spring would render it almost completely useless for its engineered purpose.

I don't understand how some people would even consider putting $60.00 springs on a $25k+ car. Sure, it's no Ferrari but it's not a beater either.

when I asked the guy on the phone about the quality of the springs and how they sized up to other brands which cost hundreds, the tone in his response seemed like he should have just said "yeah these are garbage"

honestly...those look like the ones that you go on ebay and type in accord coilovers and then u go over to the side and click on "lowest first" and those show up...not to be mean.

if you have $60 to play with...go for it.
