Fv suspension coilovers

Just got them today. First impressions, alot smaller springs on front. Not quite sure how the rear goes together but they have a video link that might help. Looks like plenty of height adjustment.

The lower rear mount might be too big. I may have to modify that but kinda thought I'd beef that up anyway.

It will be awhile before I get to install them. But I think they will work.

$1200 and about a month to build them.

After watching some videos it appears that my rears are not true coilovers and are in fact similar to the factory setup, with added adjustability.
Let us know how the install works out. I've been looking for a similar setup but there are not many options available anymore.
As far as I know, this is the only option right now. Part availability for these cars isn't what it used to be. I try to buy stuff when I find it for that reason.

It will be awhile before i install. The rear may get put in on next summer or before possibly. The front could be quite a bit later down the road. I'm hoping to at least do a side by side comparison, and will post some thoughts then too.
If you can I'd like to see some pics of them installed.

They look different than I would expect them to be.
I can take some under car pics but the car is in storage now and it's snowing (I'm in WIsconsin), when I can get it out I'll get them to you
No rush...I understand all to well. I'm in Minnesota.
