OK, well those shocks have been brought up on this site a few times...might even be the same auction too. First, those AREN'T even the shocks for the car pictured. The spring rates are WAY off and, for that price, you should expect them to perform poorly. Just get a set of Bilsteins and know you're buying a quality product with a good warranty.
