tein springs? good deal?

found these on e-bay and did'nt know if this was a good deal or not, also a local shop quoted me $125 to install, is that good? this will be my first set of springs so i'm in the dark here.

i hope you have an EP3 (Si) cause thats what those are for. the price aint bed 150, is about average for springs. and 125 installed aint bad either, its more fun to do it yourself. i did it to my car and a member's here and it was tons of fun rippin it apart.

its not a hard install at all man.. installing springs (tein s-techs) at that was the first mod that i actually had to rip something apart to install.. it took me and my friend (both of un highly inexperienced at suspensions at the time) about 4 hours to swap out all 4 springs.. just follow the DIY on the site.. its pretty straightforward..

there's the DIY i used.. be EXTREMELY careful if you decide to use a hammer to remove the tie rod like shown in the DIY.. you can easily strip/warp those threads making it a gigantic pain in the *** to complete the installation.. i'd recommend leaving the nut on the end of the tie rod or use a piece of wood between the hammer and the tie rod threads if you decide to hammer the sucker out.. that's prolly the hardest part of the installation..

nah, its simple, just dont hit the bottom of the tierod. just beat the **** out of the strut arm, it will just pop up. you will be fine. just be careful when taking apart the front struts, even when you stand on it still pops pretty hard.

Don't Buy Off Ebay!

Pay the extra and get it from a reputable place. I bought off Ebay and the description was exactly the same as that and the springs were fake. I got my money back and everything, but please just spend the extra money.

thank's. i just read through the DIY and it seems hella more simple than i thought it was going to be. so long as i take my time it should be cool

thanks for the warning. i would'nt have ever thought about that. the guy has excellent feed back, but like the warning said a lot of people may not have been able to tell they were fake. i might just buy some springs from someone on here
