Post the item's information
Post as much info as you can. A price must be posted, as well as pictures of the item(s). Post as many pictures as you can, even if it is a common item. A picture tells a thousand words, but it can also conceal another thousand. Links to hosted galleries of images are acceptable, links to eBay and/or Craigslist are not. Once the item sells, please do not edit your ad to remove the price. Many people search through old ads to get an idea what their item may be worth.

In case the point was not made, everything being sold on this forum must include a price and as many pictures as possible.
-This is not eBay or Craigslist (or any other buy/sell/trade site). Do not post links to those for your ad. The same goes for linking to ads on other forums... either post your information here or have your thread closed.

    Put a good amount of miles on mine, so far very happy. Fronts are probably ahalf way down. Rears are all the way down. Think if i took the adjuster out it'd sit a little more level? I like the raked look but rear could deff be lower

      how did you install the adjuster in the rear? does it go on the top end of the spring or the bottom? I left the spring pads in without the adjuster because I just couldnt figure out how to fit it on the pad since it just wont fit. and the smallest coil for the rear spring sits on the bottom spring pad right?

      that's how Ive got it installed and its hella bouncy. and its pretty low, on 17's ive covered more than half of the tire.

        I've been driving on these coils for over a month now and am very happy with them. not too bouncy at all. just the right amount of comfort with stiffness. Good handling in my opinion; but i can only compare to my 20 year old stock suspension.

        This is a picture with the front coils almost all the way down, probably 7 threads left. and the back doesn't even have the adjuster in it.

          i think they're bouncy because of the rear springs, not very stiff. i installed them with the pads in and the adjuster on the top. works fine IMO. eventually i cut the adjust off so am just running the spring/pads/and the little coller that sits inside the spring.

              finally got it set up. rear is on with adjusters to the lowest and pads on. however small problem is:

              rear passenger side is a half inch lower than the other?? ive tried on different grounds to see if it was uneven ground but it is not.

              what could it be? bad shock?

                Possibly bad shock. Installed them the same exact way? didnt forget a spring pad or anything?

                  yeah, I installed them exact same way.

                  Im not experiencing excessive bounce from any particular corner though.

                  Im hoping they just haven't settled in evenly just yet.

                  thanks for the reply, this is how she sits right now. fronts about 5/8 way down and rears all the way down with pads and adjusters.



                  notice how on this one, rear arch sits a bit higher than passenger side.



                  this side sits lower, and this is on any pavement no matter how level it is.

                  ill get some better pics up, and hopefully this settles nicely!

                  as for ride, pretty nice ride on the highway., just need some better tires and freshen up some steering components!!

                  happy with these so far!!

                      I have been running on my JOMs for about 2 months and I like them since I daily drive my car everyday. not too stiff at all for casual cruising. They corner decently too with a little body roll. I do too have the issue of the passenger rear being a little lower than the driver's side rear. But not too bad. here is a picture

                      Front and rear adjusted fully to the lowest setting.

                        The rear spring in the kit is too soft? how soft is too soft because I use the eibach pro kit with bilstein touring shocks and I bottom out quite often. Been looking to get this kit and was wondering if I should use the eibach rear spring in place of the JOM?

                            Can anyone confirm the difference between Vert/Coupe Jom coilovers? Nothing appears to be different to me. Just the spring rates perhaps?

                              nothing. I'm running some on my vert.

                                different spring rates is correct. Since cabrios usually weigh more than hardtops, the spring rates for the verts are higher than the hardtops. A lot of members with hardtops actually run the vert setups to add a little more stiffness.
                                I don't even own this car anymore, but I'm too lazy to change the picture.
