I saw those a few days ago. I was rather surprised at the price. I might get them myself if I ever sell my car and get the 97 Accent.

Sleeve coilovers aren't true coilovers, kinda like adjustable springs, and fit around the strut/shock. Full coilovers are a whole assembly with a shock insert, also adjustable.

The only coil-overs that I have seen were from SR from a company in Korea. The only problem with that is that if I have a problem and need a replacement in a hurry, I would be SOL. I will be autocrossing my car for the next couple of years, and then will be rallying the car full time after that. Right now the best shocks you can easily get for the Accent are either the KYB GR-2 , or the Sachs BOGE units. The Koni inserts are only adjustable if you remove them from the car. Ultimately, no sleeve kit will really stand up to what I need them for, and add to that the lack of a good adjustable damper available in Canada and the US. I may go to with custom Bilstein coil-overs, that way the shop that builds them for me will at least be able to set me up if I blow one.

hey autobot i'd like to see you beat 200 hundred bucks. With a true coilover you will pay 1000 or more. Some people don't care about fully adjustable coilovers some just want ride height adjustment. My ground controls work perfect for what i do with my escort and with some better struts i bet i could out handle most true coilovers. So it is all what you want. I bet most of the guys on here just want the adjustable heighth aspect. But if your coilovers will cost less then 600 bucks(struts + sleeves) then I stand corrected. But please steer the people in the right direction not just try to get a sale. <img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

If you read all the posts andy you would see that I was not just trying to get a sale. If I would have said someithing like this in my 1st post....

Don't get those they are just sleaves buy hps true coilovers instead.

Then that would be just trying to get a sale.

But someone said they were waiting for companies to make true coilovers and I gave them an alternative brand.

No I can not beat $200 for sleaves but any moron can see that when they go to buy them and then make the decision on their own. So maybe you should read a lil more closely before you come on here and flame me saying that I am steering people in the wrong direction.

I saw a pic of them..Now the question is do you take out your existing springs? How do they adjust the height?

i apologize for my abruptness. The angle i was approaching was that the "true coilover" will cost a lot of money. I know how some people are or this board and i don't want them to get the wrong impression on what they are buying or considering to buy. Explanation for those of you clueless is a true coilover is a strut/shock sleeved spring combo. It will bolt in as a full setup. The full coilover setup will have adjustments for damping and height. Something not truly needed unless you plan for autocrossing/hard driving/anal about having full control of your suspension. The sleeve coilover will just alow for ride height adjustment and will work as a spring just going over the strut assembly, not the full kablaam. Autobot i show no disrespect so don't take me the wrong way. I appreciate everything you guys are doing because i know how hard that is since i've been involved with the escort seen for 3 years now. I just know more advice is needed for different people. I am always asking for help as well that is how I have learned as much as I have now. I'd love to see the coilovers to consider for my gir's accent. <img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

I'm not anal about my suspension. I'm just looking for a decent setup i can afford... That is adjustable! This is a cheap alternative to the actual product. I was just posting for the people like me that have three kids, are poor and love the bargains. More bang for the buck thats all.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/moon.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

Will getting the sleeves hurt the car at all? is it just the same as having lowered springs and standard shocks? From another person that doesnt really know much about these things, it seems like the sleeves are just the springs and the adjustable mechanisms...where-as the 'real' coil-overs are the adjustable spring and the adjustable shock absorber? correct or way off track?
if correct, would it be possible to buy the coil-over sleeve (adjustable springs) and then add aftermarket shocks later?
Ive already got lowered springs on my accent, but i want a lower drop, so this seems like the ideal way to get the nice "lowish" drop for driving, and the full "on its A$$" drop for shows and so forth.... how long does it take to adjust the height and so forth? and is it hard?

Anywhere else have these coil-over sleeves? Anyone got them on their accent, or any car for that matter?
To me they look like a good alternative to lowered springs?

Cheers

I have Weapon-R's sleeve coilovers on, they're about the same as lowered springs. Beau you have to get aftermarket shocks as the stock ones will be gone in under a month, KYBs being the best bang for your buck.
