Anyone run c/o's in the winter? I have heard they can sieze and won't be adjustable afterwards. Maybe an indication for springs and shocks instead.

I would never use coilovers in the winter. Yes, salt and road shit is gonna get in the threads and possibly cause them to seize.

You would have to grease them up really well to avoid this.

I ran my E30 Ground Controls through many winters. Never seized, just sprayed them off with brake cleaner in the spring and re-lubed them.

I installed this set up in my garage 4 weeks ago. I paid roughly the same amount as TNd--b.

The Pro:
1. It is cheap and if your on a budget get it.
2. the stance is good.

The con:

1. You can feel the bumps while your driving.
2. If your installing it for the first time, don't do it. I found it to be a bitch.

If somebody has the time, please look into a group buy. I really think we could get a pretty good amount of people.

They used USPS for me. Im sure if you request it they will do that. UPS has always raped people for duty/brokerage fees.
