Anyone ever had these!!

They excellent, good, bad or shoot!??

Hw do they compare to GMAX, as ive got GMAX 35mm Suspension Kit, but want 60mm springs, and have seen some 60mm jamex ones!?
They worth a buy and would they fit on gmax shocks??

Cheers

they dont fit properly... when you jack up the car the front springs are loose...

Bilstein yellows with eibach - 50mm springs.

I run Koni adjustables with -60mm jamex springs and i like it... harsh but car handles like a go-kart

on a budget go bilstein blacks and -40mm, i had this setup and it worked well... still have the shocks and springs kicking about if you're interested
