    Jamex?

    has anybody purchased the Jamex coilies off ebay for £240.???
    i dont wanna spend silly money but i dont want those dirt cheap ones.

    ill be buying a whiteline ARB aswell. so hopefully should see a lot better handling as im currently using Eibach springs on standard shocks.

    Are the jamex springs and shock set better then the coilovers. Better in terms of you just want to drop the car a bit and have better handling...?

    I didnt realy like the jamex springs and shocks, the front end of my car went far too low, I now have the eibach pro kit with the jamex shocks and the ride is much better and seems to handle a lot better also.

    Iv bought a set , Fitted today along with these adjustable drop links , http://www.lmfvauxhall.co.uk/store/p...at=2247&page=1
    Not drove far on them yet.
    The rides firmer than standard but i had Tein coilys on my scooby and they were miles better but also cost 3 times more , So for only £240 not bad
