Good luck in your search, I looked religiously on the forums, ebay, and facebook for 6 months before giving up and buying ohlins. Super happy with them, wish I did it sooner. Fortune at 2200 seems pretty decent. If I were you I'd just cough up the dough and do it right the first time.

Just the fronts are. That's another $400 for the rears to be rebuilt. That get's you to $1,850.

For that you get new:

Or you can get fortune auto 500s which I feel are superior to h&rs brand new for about 1600.

Those parts look a little too similar to the $850 coilovers on ebay.

Lol, dont judge a book by its cover. Fortune is a legit US company that makes quality suspensions. You should really do some research before making such a big purchase for your car. But hey it's your money.

those look quite nice, still $2600 for our cars but on par with PSS10 pricing.

thats the retail. the guy on f/b had them down under 2200 if there was a group buy interest. and pss10 dont give you top hats and the ability to specify what spring rates you want
