Apexi WS Coilovers for Cheap!!

Found Apexi WS height adjustable coilovers for $479 here http://racerwheel.com/a71-246kh016.html This is dirt cheap than what they originally went for. I think they originally retailed for $1000. Man this is a deal. Im on this like flys on sh*t.

ummm .....sorry post was a kind of urge of the moment thing. Turns out shipping + taxes like $134 so total came out to $613 I think I can find omnis for cheaper. Still a good deal though for Apexi. Apexi is top of the line stuff.

haha.. the price for the whole set is what you paid for one coilover. How you like them so far. Heard they offer one of the smoothest close to stock rides.

no... I was saying the $479 price for all 4 coilovers, is almost the same as what one coilover costs when you bought them for $1800 cdn. Anyway how do you

like them so far was it worth the money. Im still debating between these and omnis. People say go with omnis if you want handling and a stiffer ride and go

with apexi if you want a smooth ride, height adjustability, and that they improve handling just enough for spirited driving.

they improve handling a lot more than just enough for spirited driving.. i'm using them on race tracks and they're doing nice work. The ride is stiff when needed but on normal cruising, smooth too. That's one of the greatest suspension setup coilover for this car.. The WS Damper is made specially for intermediate or full size cars.. Coils and shocks are made for heavier cars like ours fat accords.. That's why it's smooth but stiff because cheap coilover stiffness is due to coils and shocks which compress too much under the weight of a heavier car.. Apex'I WS is just perfect for 6th gen accord.. I wouldn't change my choice.

hmmmm... so this is a $1000 dollar coilover system for half the price maybe I will go with these. Ive never heard a bad review about these and youve had these

for two years now? with no problems? Im tired of bouncing around and scraping my lip when I have hella people in my car.

All right cool. I know for a fact that California winters are nowhere near as bad as Canadian winters. So thats a plus for reliability. Also are the coilovers

progressive spring rates? meaning as you go lower the stiffer the springs get? Also on a scale of 1-10 how much do these coilovers improve the understeering

schoolbus like handling of accords?
