Speedway has coilovers that may be helpful to some. Looks like $289.99 a pair. http://www.speedwaymotors.com/Aluminum- ... 46590.html

Hi Graham,
Do we know who makes the shocks? Seems like a really good price considering what's out there.

Geoff :cheers:

Hi Geoff. I think they are Afcos going by the review somebody wrote. Not 100% sure though. Hope all is well.
:cheers:

As stated at the very beginning of the online description, they are made by Pro Shocks.

Hi Graham,
Things are coming into place, can't complain.

Driven 5, Pro Shocks appear to have a good looking website. Do they make the shocks or repackage?

Has anyone ended up using these Pro Shocks from Speedway motors? Seems like a really good deal, if the work well. I would like to hear some feedback if someone has first hand experience.

I looked at them, but they were too long for my car. Could've possibly gotten away with 9.5-13.5 in front, but not in back.

According to their documentation, under 3200 pounds curb weight means using the softest settings. ....
And with no info on revalving available it'll take that one brave soul to make the investment and see if they can be modded to fit our needs.
