Default FA 500s Feal 441's or Tein Street flex

So I'm in the market of a good coilover kit under 2000 and have done alot of research and have really narrowed it down to 3 I like the Fortune autos with swift springs cause they have a 5 year warranty... the feal ones come with swift springs and are cheaper so that is a plus but I can't find anything on warranty also I keep hearing the tein street flex are good as well... anyone care to shed some light? Your input is greatly appreciated

I have feals 441s and think they are great. As for the warranty I would think it is a year and when you need them rebuilt they will give you a discounted rate on the rebuild.

Had one strut body making weird noises and after a few emails back and forth they sent one right out. Def seem to take care of their customers in my opinion.

I myself also always wanted tiens for my vehicle but some research will show their spring rates don't seem to match up with most of the good sets. Which made me decide against them.

Feal all the way. I wouldn't buy anything else short of those in that price range, you can call them any time of the day and get an answer, best service around.

Alright thanks guys ya I noticed the tein street flex have 6k 5k spring rates and you can't customize them... I'm really stoll just debating between feal and fa500 I think feal is winning though cause they already come with swift springs for 1400 as to where the Fortune 500 do not and to get them it's an extra 350

Obviously my opinion will be portrayed as biased being I am a dealer for the Feal products.....http://www.vaughnperformance.com/sea...y=feal&Search=

that said, I can say without hesitation that in the equivalent price range of the Feals for coilovers with equivalent options in this range these are by far your best bet.

I need to double check with Odi on his exact warranty policy in terms of duration, but in terms of support I can say with great certainty I've seen few people stand behind their product (especially in this range) as firmly as Feal does. If there are ever any issues, you will definitely be taken care of. Also as mentioned you get Swifts right out of the box, as well as Odi's extensive knowledge in valving, not to mention they can be serviced without fuss right here in CA.

If you have any other questions or need any other help on the Feal's, feel free to drop me a line on here.

I don't think they do. I think the website states they just come on the fronts.

I didn't get any with my set but it was for an 05 and not an 08.

The 08+ cannot even adjust camber by the top hats (even if for whatever stupid reason the mfg were to put them in there). The rears are not struts, so they cannot be camber adjustable via a tophat/camber plate. the rears are a totally different design than the fronts.

if you want camber adjustment in the rear, your best bet will be a set of SPC rear LCAs

As mentioned, the rear's on the 08's don't come with any provision for camber adjustment since they are a shock in back. You can get adjustable links as mentioned as well as upper inner rear arm bushings that can adjust camber (if you'd rather not replace the entire arm).
