I'd rather replace my struts with an adjustable strut (like Tokico D-Spec
) than coilover because the coilover ride quality just sucks imo. They are too firm for daily driving and I don't track my SVX.
p.s. I love the Tokico D-Specs. We have been driving around in them and they are awesome. thanx TiC.
don't forget how the endlink attaches to the front strut. You CAN rework it though to make it attach to the control arm if you have a welder handy though.
