if you offer this with a 650 lb/in rate up front and 500 in the rear, i'll buy a set next fall when i was going to buy a set of BC coilovers.  i'm not budgeted for coilovers til then...but who knows, i might get a small sponsorship or figure a way to get them sooner.  will it be possible to get those rates?  also...will we be able to revalve them if i take them to a shock dyno to be tuned/dialed in?
more weight reduction than a gastrointestinal bypass patient.  and a few go fast goodies too.

You're kidding, right? this is not some letsputasleeveoverthestockstrutsoicanslammypos kind of coilovers, not ground control or drop zone specials. If there is someone already selling coilovers to fit the zx2, please send me a link so i can see what you are talking about.

if it comes in pillow ball bushing, that's what i need...this car is tracked, and needs the absolute stiffest possible mount.  i'll wait til you find out if there are pillow ball joints available as well as revalvability and spring rate choices.

also for the record...most of the cars that won nationals this year in the SCCA Solo Nationals, ran on Ground Control sleeves over Ohlin or other stock style replacement shocks ;)

jeez rob, you really gonna call me out? i was hoping that you would simply just let it go so it would not escalate any further. but if you insist...

these are the same exact coils you are selling (i understand the picture looks different, its a stock picture), however the part itself is still the same from the stickers, numbers style on coils, the color of the suspension themselves, and even the description in ebay is very very similar lol.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/MAZDA-MA ... arQ5fParts

now before you tell me that the link says it is for a mazda 323 and not for the zx2....i fcking know. i own a zx2 AND a 323 and i can tell you that the setup is interchangable.

just posting this pic to whore out my 323 lol....




now for ACTUAL pictures of a 323 setup, a "BC coilover kit" compared to your knockoff "BG coilovers" you are trying to resell.











so like i said....GETTHEFUCKOUTTAHEREWITHTHATBULLSHITSON!

You bought them for less than half of 900 bucks (450 according to my math) from someone who stocks them in the usa?

Really?  I'm gonna raise the BS flag on that. Thats a few hundred less than I paid thats for sure.

And an older 323 set does not fit a zx2 - they're different broham. Lower bolt spacing is different, and the rears of an early model has a secondary bracket the track arm bolts to.

Regarding your link, a assuming you bought that set they offer there, you'd pay 499 plus 188 shipping = 687.00 according to my math, and you had it shipped in from taiwan. Now according to my math $687 is not half of "less than $900. Get a calculator if you don't believe me.

So I don't know what kind of personal beef you have with me, if you do, let's take it to PM and duke it out there.

In the meantime, I'd appreciate it if you'd be civil and understand all I'm doing is offering something up that to my knowledge is not out there yet.

broham? c'monson, if you really want to get all technical be my guest. fact of the matter is "less than 900" does NOT equal $687 from ebay....

and your info on how the BG chassis 323 struts dont interchange, how did these guys get them to fit?

the FEOA and Team ZX2 links you submitted are not for 86-89 323 coilovers, but are 90-94 323 k-sport coilovers, and the 90-94 set will fit the 91 up escort.

you'll also find the ones in that link are k-sport brand, and the cheapest they sell for on ebay is 900 bucks!! sound familiar??

really man, what's your problem?

Guys....

I'm a bit disappointed the way this thread turned out.  Corby, first and foremost this is a vendor section of the forum.  While I do not have an issue with people bringing things up, you don't charge into a thread here talking to a vendor like that and telling them to "get the fuck out of here".  I'm not going to have that on here.  This board was not founded on behavior as such, and we don't condone it.

If for any reason someone feels there is something that is incorrect, or that there are undisputed facts about something and can show me something then we can discuss it and bring it up with the vendor.  

This thread is locked.

Next time if someone feels it's necessary to raise hell you can pm the person in question or pm myself and we'll talk about it.  We are not here to "call each other out" and are not here to cause any sort of tension between one another.

Please review if you have any questions.

If for any reason anyone has any questions about anything in this thread, any information presented here, questions, concerns, etc I encourage you to contact Rob or Myself and we can talk about it.

Let's please keep it civil.  Thank you.
Manda stole my ZX2.
