Hopefully I can sway the doubters/questioners... I have the new version of the F2 Type I that I purchased from Weksos 4 weeks ago. Trust me, they're really great! Yes the Type I doesn't have adjustable dampening, but the spring rate is pretty aggressive and pretty good for the car imo. They can DUMP your car to the ground!! They also ride really smooth and handle as if on rails. They're def def stiffer than TEIN Basics, but they still have a comfortable ride. In that case, they're obviously not unbearably stiff. I had a guy in my car who has been in other Hondas with like Megan coilovers or Ksport coilovers, and he said the way mine rode was so comfortable. He said he could have gone on a long trip with them and not been bothered. They don't provide many specs, but the F2 staff told me this...

"Trevor,

Thank you very much for your purchase of our product. We are glad that you enjoy the product. The coilovers will be able to lower the car at least 3.5-4 inches. The spring rates are 12/6 kg. The lowering and raising the car can be a tedious process, we know. If necessary, they can be removed rather easily as well, as raising or lowering the lower mount is a lot easier once the coilovers are off the car..."

You of course have to take the wheel off the car and unbolt some other stuff to change the ride height, which can take longer than other brands, but this is what mainly helps retain comfort in the ride. It's not a completely hard process either, so no worries about that. I highly recommend Function/Form, and I happen to think they're on the right track and will prob within the next two years be atop the industry for suspension. They're a semi-young company, but they are gaining more and more respect, especially from me.

Type I = Ride-Height-Only Adjustable (adjust by lower mount only, come with new top hats)
Type II = 32-way Adjustable Dampening and Ride-Height Adjustable (also look into the Wireless Dampening Controller)


If you have questions, pm me. Def be glad to help. I asked Weksos and F2 lots of questions before purchasing, so I could def help.

Good job guys, the coilovers rock!! their customer service is amazing as well. they respond to any email within a day usually and they're very descriptive. their grammar on their instructions could use some work but they do make a great product.

Can you get a GB price on the wireless controller also?

And do the T2's only have bottom mount adjustability as well?

And one last thing (and I searched too!) how exactly does one adjust the ride height on these?
Take the wheel off and then what?

fine i'll do a quick review.

this is my 3rd set of coilovers. had springs and apexi. by far these are the nicest in build quality. the design is awesome and is superior to apexi and tein basics and ss. it will have full shock travel at all heights and they SLAM. which is good for me. they feel very full and recover quickly esp in LA (10 freeway omg). they're not uber stiff like ksports (which are underdampened and shocks blow). they're stiffer than apexi of course and ride very nice. its a very nice stiffness, very full, full shock travel, and a bit bumpy but perfect for me.

only thing is that adjusting these take a bit longer with 1-2 more tools than my apexi.

done for 550, these are the best buy period.



oh and i believe that the wireless dampener isn't available yet.
