Feeler: JIC coilovers/ trade?

Feeler: JIC coilovers/ trade?

Postby tooshorty » Tue Sep 18, 2012 12:41 pm

I'm thinking of selling my JIC Flta's and going back to coilovers... I'm the 2nd owner of these and they got about 21k on them now. No problems with them other than its a rough ride. I either want trade plus $300 or $700 all together. Like I said just a feeler... unless someone has an offer I can't refuse.

Also its a pain to make rear adjustments when the back seat needs to come out.

FYI- if you cut out two rectangular sections behind the seat, you can adjust the knobs.

I want to possibly go back to lowering springs. My car was originally a TRD... and it had all the perks at one point before I had it. So there is no way i want to go to OEM lol looks ugly

I really wanted to go with the flush look but I need more money and time to do that and just riding on coilovers daily gets kind of rough. I see ToyosolV6 and i just want to punch myself in the face for not figuring crap out before I jumped into getting coils.lol

this is why after i changed my setup twice i went with a striped down interior and trunk, no rear seats, spare, rugs, jack, liners, everything is gone minus the front seats and console. sounds crzy but it's stupid fun in the corners and when u floor it, exhaust is so much louder especially when you get on it and hear the rush of exhaust flowing. sounds like the exhaust has a vacuum hooked up to it. so sick
