    Has anyone used these coilovers and if so how did they work? I got them for $630 shipped so I made an impulse buy and I'm hoping they're better than my H&T's with the stock struts and shocks. If I brake boost launch my car I get tire spin even with 275's because the rear squats too much. I'm hoping to mitigate this problem so I can launch it @ 2500 and dead hook on the street.

    I was going to get new shocks but I like the idea of being able to dial in the compression and rebound. I've launched at 1800 before like other people have said and it's quick but I launched at 2500 once and had the car hook and it did a 4.1 flat 60 ft on the street! I just emailed Tony to purchase a set of the Tranny mounts. Thanks for the info!

    I'm in a simular boat, I have leaky front Passenger strut, car sits nearly 1/4" lower on that side.....I really want Coilovers as well but with other mods being so pricey, I'm tempted to look at cheaper options and I've noticed these Godspeed Coilovers a few times. Only reviews I've seen is Honda and Infiniti/Nissan reviews. They appear get the job done but you usually get what you pay for. Unknown how they'll hold up.

    Change the strut fool. You have a system that works.
