I am thinking about buying some coil-overs from ebay and I was wondering if any one has installed them. If so could you give me some directions on putting in the coil-overs. I have a 96 escort, and I want to slam it. Please Help.

If I order a set of coil-overs, just coil-overs, can they be installed on stock struts, or do I have to buy special struts?

Justin, your stock struts MIGHT hold out for a little while (if you only go about 1/4 of the way down), but they'll be toast VERY quickly.

In my opinion, save your money and get a PROPER setup. Forget the $80 cheap-ass coilovers on ebay. Get yourself some Ground Controls...the quality alone is worth the price.

As far as struts go, Tokico S/R's or Tokico HP (blue ones) will last a bit longer, but again, they aren't adjustable, so if you're SHAAALAMMMMED, they will wear out very fast.

So basically: Get the GC's...get Tokico S/R's, and only drop it 1/4 of the way for everyday driving. Then SLAM it at car shows.

My $0.02
