OK, so looks like the SeX has two basic options. Stance and Megan for coilovers with pillowball mounts. Stance is about $250-300 more than the Megan's, but they use an inverted monotube front strut.

Anyone had any experience (on anything) with either brand? The FF boyz LOVE the megan's, so that is one strike against them already.

i've heard lots of negative stuff on megan from nissan folks...

but then again it could be like ksport, good on some cars, terrible on others...

are ground controls the sleeves? again i've heard both love stories and hate stories... most love stories came from civic owners iirc the hate came from dsm's who dragged

Oh no, I'm so sorry... the correct answer is The Moops.

The packaging clearly stated '100'. I'm short ONE luft balloon.

Yes they are sleeves, But they are made to order kinda thing. All they do is make stuff for racing.

The #1 problem with that is there isn't one. At least not an off-the-shelf option. Besides, that would only cover the front, as the rear is a seperate spring/shock combo almost identical to the MD. In fact, the rear shocks look to be interchangeable between the two cars. It will be my final option most likely, but I will have to find some struts/shocks to work with them as at this time there is NOTHING available for either car.
