    Godspeed is either cheap Chinese or Taiwanese knock off parts. Stay clear of Godspeed, Megan, Helix and those cheaper brands. BCs are better but still a budget coilover that is not that good.

    Why do you need coilovers?

    For most people a good strut/spring combo is the way to go (i.e. Dspecs/RCE Blacks). I suggest you do more research and then contact TIC to talk to Tony/Clint.

    If you are truly suicidal, you should seek professional help.

    Because if you put that **** on your car, you will surely be killed.

    If all you can afford is BCs, you can't afford coilovers.

    I couldn't afford a high $$$ set either, so I bought a good used set.

    Keep in mind, you'll likely have to have them rebuilt after a shorter period of time..... but you're still better off going that route than buying low-quality new set.

    Save your existing suspension.

    You didn't cheap out on the engine. Why would you cheap out on the Suspension? Save up and wait. Good choice for the pistons and rods. Don't know much about ACL. What bearings did you end up with?

    Haha i just wanted to get a lower and better look. But after some thought i will wait a while for a decent set. The ACLs are the tri metal race series. I am hoping to start a build thread on it tonight after work.

    Why you hatin' on the BCs?

    I can afford the most expensive coilovers out there but doesn't mean I'm going to get them nor does it mean that other coilovers won't fit my needs without spending $2k, $3k, $4k, ect.. :/
