    Jamex Coilovers?

    looking for some coilovers and ive mesaged a few people on here about second hand ones with not much reply so i have looked into getting some new ones.

    now im not forking out £400 for vmaxx or fk ones so was gonna found some cheapish jamex ones on fleabay:

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/JAMEX-Coilover...item4cee7e4266

    are they decent and whats the ride like?

    also would obviously need drop links so ive found some vmaxx ones and some on lmf but how many do i need?

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/V-Maxx-Vauxhal...item19b5c3af78

    http://www.lmfvauxhall.co.uk/store/p...at=2246&page=1

    drop links are only for the frond of the car correct?

    any help appreciated

    cheers

    Personally I'd get the JOM coilovers from LMF for the same price...

    One droplink each side of the car so you need two Not sure if you 100% need these myself though so hopefully someone else can tell you.

    LMF confirmed they are JOM branded on here

    No issues with Performance3000 mind, got my Jamex shocks from them, so your call I guess!

    Warranty was as Jamex offer.

    I have shocks/springs so not the same ride as coilovers. With shocks and springs it's pretty good, not family friendly, but I like it

    Mine are rated at -40mm which, to be honest, is about right for mixing looks with driveability.

    Depends on the speedbump! If I went lower than I am I'd not get on my drive but no issues with speedbumps even if I go over them with one wheel either side.
