    They've had kits like this for the NA cars for years now... It's cheap, if you have a TT, buy them and try them out, if they work, great, if not, you're not out that much.

    An old saying comes to mind, you get what you pay for. You couldn't pay me to put those on my car. For that price I would assume they're cheap, not inexpensive. Just keep in mind that these are going to have to support the weight of your car. I wouldn't want to be driving and have one fail. Also, I hope you realize that these are for coil-overs. They will not fit on the ECS struts and if you're spending the money for coil-overs why cheap out on the springs?

    If you do have coil-overs then you can find decent springs for not too much more than that. If you don't then you can get the Tein S or H tech for not much more than that.

    They are not for coilovers, the design makes them "coilovers." They are to be used on stock struts, whether ECS or non ECS. They are a ripoff of Ground Control "coilovers."

    That being said they are junk. My brother had a very similar kit on one of his old neons. Literally a week after they went on he blew a strut out. He replaced that strut and ended up breaking one of the springs. Because of the modifications to the struts required to make the "coilovers" fit, he had to go buy 4 new struts so he could put stock springs back on.

    I had the ground control "coilovers" for a while. Basically the same thing but I'm assuming higher quality. The ride was more than stiff and they rattled pretty good. Save up your cash and buy some springs or coilovers.
