Used coilovers

Would you feel safe buying used coilovers? There are some good deals in the FS section but I don't know if I'd feel right getting them used for safety reasons. Also, I know KW switched a component of their coilovers due to customer complaints and I don't know if that would be an issue with a used set.

I thought KW were warrantied for life. If so, you should have no problems. I just bought some used H&R coilovers and no regrets yet.

I would tread carefully with a used suspension part, especially with the KWs with their inherent flaws of the earlier versions that the support brace would bend and crack and also with the chirping noises that people have been complaining about...Do a search about them....good luck with your decision
