I purchased mine from West Coast Fieros. It took what felt like forever to get them, but im very pleased with them. they were around $400 bucks if i can remember right but they come in a kit and a very nice kit at that. Mine are 400lb spring rate. Also fully adjustable and nice top hats. you could also try arrautmotorsports.com

I've also seen the Mookeeh coilovers on Ebay for $99.99 but you only get the coils.

Best coil overs I have ever seen or dealt with were the HELD ones but not sure if they are still around. The bolted right in perfectly with no messing around like the WCF ones. Dan

the Coil springs are generally 300 lbs. they are on ebay for the springs and sleeves for $95 for the kit. The only use I can see for them is to install alot wider wheels & tires.

I ordered my springs from Jegs. QA1 10" 250 in/lb springs.
Here is a link to a 10" 275lb QA1 spring. To find different spring rates just change the last 3 digits of the part number.
http://www.jegs.com/i/QA1/122/10-275/10002/-1

I also ordered Coleman Racing adjustable sleeves from Jegs. It was cheaper to order them from Jegs than from Coleman due to free shipping from Jegs.

http://www.jegs.com/i/Colem...193/420-701/10002/-1

This was all used in the rear of an '86 with new KYB struts.

Edit to add: this is about as cheap as I was able to get by for these. The ones I found on eBay were too skeptical for me to order because they all seemed to use the same generic pictures and had minimal dimensional info. It just wasn't worth the risk to me so I went with what I knew would work.
