I want to put coilovers on all four corners and WCF has them and they are nice but has anybody tried these out as of yet? They are more affordable

The Ebay sets will work fine however the sleeves are short. I bought a set of Eibach coilovers with the shorter sleeves. I had to buy longer ones because with the ones in your picture, the spring seats in the perch just fine....as long as the car is on the ground. If you hit a larger bump that extends the strut all the way, the spring is about 3" too short and will fall sideways. With a longer sleeve, you will be fine with that set but I would make sure they sell you at least 6" sleeves or larger.

Never purchased from this seller but I built my own coil-overs with a thread from PFF. My rear used 300 lb springs with my 4.9.

This is what I mean. I made the black spacers at the bottom of the sleeve. With the strut out of the car, the spring fits fine. If I remove the spacer, the spring falls to the side at full extension out of the car. I ended up just getting 12" springs from a race company.

I wouldn't trust that ad, mostly because of the years they work for: 84, 85, 86, 87, 88, annnnnnnd 89?? I'm sorry but if the business really wants to make a sale, please just get simple things like that right.

If you look at the other items they sell in their store, they list the exact same part, with every other car in existence. Will not work.

hahaha, I've email them a bunch, asking what the lb ratings are, what type of springs (progressive, etc), and haven't heard back.
I wasn't looking to buy them, just find out if these guys are for real. oh well.
