H&R coilovers installed

just a couple of quick sh!tty pictures from my bb.


ride had firmed up some but overall it's definitely not bad, more solid I guess is a good way to put it. I would recommend the H&R coilovers as a cheaper alternative to v3's any day.

Wheels are Forgeline VR3P's painted centers and barrels with polished lips.

And thanks guys. My only regret is waiting a year to do the coilovers.

Height adjustment is what defines coilovers, so I would assume yes.

$1200 or so. Talk to Turner Motorsports good pricing and quality installs. And yes height adjustable. I have them set on the high side.

H&R coilover kit is 50495-2. It's been about 3 weeks now. Ride quality really isn't bad it is definitely more firm but not kidney jarring firm. I'd say solid is a good way to describe the ride. Here is a pic from today, got in a quick wash before easter sunday madness.

How much should someone expect to pay for coilover installation? I guess better question, regardless of cost / hr, is how many hours at a shop to install?
