    They aren't height adjustable for the rear front only. Depends what you want, seem like a very cheap option for coilovers though.

    i wouldnt touch them with a barge pole TBH, had mine on for around 3 years now, used the protection oil/cream/stuff for the coils and recently spent 3-4hrs trying to free them up as they had seized SOLID!!!!!!

    they are cheap for a reason i'd stay well clear and spend a little more money on another product.

    do a google search, loads of other people using them have had grief, i am not the only one.

    How much do you want to spend? The FK silverlines are about £560 on the same site as the set you posted.

    A friend of mine has a set of FK coilovers with height adjustment (front & rear), don't really know which model. They are quite stiff, and the ride is better than usual shock/lowering springs combinations, but I woulnd't say they are the most reliable. He had to repair them within three years after buying them new, at least they are repairable .
