everyone complains about how badly made they are, and a few people on SHO have said that theirs has completely bent out of shape entirely... anyone check to see how theirs is doing? since i doubt anyone's taken it off yet..

Nope, mine is the same as when I had it put on.

Haven't heard of anyone saying/complaining that they're badly made either.

Antidote - WHAT? Reply to the wrong thread? I do have the Koni adjustable struts on my ride, I got em for 559.

Finally..thank you...So 559 for all four...where did you get them, that's a good price ??

Oh, and Zillaaa had posted here, and at the bottom of his post it said "New Addition.....Yellow Koni Adjustable Struts"
So I asked him how much and he never replied, and I guess this thread was cleared, so I came back and asked again : )

hmm... i assume that, given that its shorter in length and newer, they've made it a bit stronger than the ones for other hondas... junglistgsr (SHO) bent is his pretty easily

"i had a DC rear lower tie bar....i bent the **** out of it, and no it didnt hit anything...i dont know how it bent or what did it, but it was definitely bent like crazy, almost an inch of deflection or bend from where it should be perfectly straight. I replaced it with a Benen bar which was actually noticeable in the strength it provided, right now i have a Tenzo rear strut bar, but it is soon to be replaced by a Spoon bar."

i saw pretty much 5 or 6 negative statements about DC sports' suspension goods, so thats why i asked, but again since its newer they might have had a chance to make it a lil stronger

Yeah, it's way shorter now. That in itself makes it a whole lot stringer.
