Oh i see, yeah i googled it and it came up on ebay. Ive never heard of that brand, you can try doing a to see if anything comes up. Did you choose that one because it was the cheapest on their site? FK coils and st coils are used by a lot of members on the forum too. I wouldnt trust a set of coils no one has used

Sounds like another no name china brand to me. I'd stay away if I were you. Used coilovers can be had for not a whole lot more $

i have Solo werks S1 . Went from an M sport to these Coilovers. Ride very well, High quality build. doesn't go as low as some would like, but perfect for the track and for true enthusiasts that look to drive rather than sit low

I've heard good things about these coilovers. I was going to get them, but they were not recommended for use on my wagon because of the extra weight in the rear.

Glad to see a good review on these, I dont suspect they will last as long as higher end brands but seem to a good economy option

What Iheard is that these are made by ex KW employees who broke off to do their own thing. The quality is supposed to be pretty good for an entry level coilover.
