Hey all, just installed my sportlines and kyb AGX's today. I think its the most perfect lookin drop for a 1g, IMO. It handles great, looks great and doesnt ride bad at all. THe struts are a little stiff, but I love the feeling:D :dsm:

-What's your set at? Mine are at 2 F & 3 R, sometime my windshield turn on as I go over railroad track, but that's the springs not the struts being too stiff.

Qucik question... On my struts up front, they didnt have any rod cover/protection or a bumpstop, did yours? I put the plastic cover on the back and the bumpstops, but my fronts dont have them.

-I'm not using the dust boots either, front or rear, gain a whooping 1/16" more strut clearance, I cut the bump stop in 1/2.

No i was saying my fronts didnt have bumpstops on them. Its not like they bottom out a lot, its just that when they do it wont be very cushioned. So i guess I should go get some from the dealer eh???

-I believe 4X4 part store also sell those stuff, just need about 1" of material for the bump stop.

I Bought These Shocks For My Car...
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=1858806755&rd=1

And was wanting to know 4 things...

1: Did i get a good deal?
2: Did i get an OK product???
3: Will this setup be ok on my 98 eclipse gs? (*hopes*)
4: Will i need to get any other modifications to put with this kit? (dum i know)

Because it says that it is for a NON-Turbo car and i am modding my car with that stage 2 hahn kit hopefully (with that group buy...) and was wondering if this will be fine? :confused:

2: Did i get an OK product???

-The photo for the coil over kit is dublicate of the same strut, your actual kit will be different, didn't mention spring rate in the page. AGX is ok for street car.

3: Will this setup be ok on my 98 eclipse gs? (*hopes*)

-Don't know, I have AWD.

4: Will i need to get any other modifications to put with this kit? (dum i know)

-Most likely, you will need to grind/cut off the spring perch(tray) on the front strut in order to put the sleeve on, unless they use some really short spring so the sleeve can sit on the strut's spring perch.
