struts went bad :( like driving in a moon bounce now

so i guess its time to get away from springs and move into the coilover world but i dont know weather to go with tein or eibach because both have good and bad reviews and the prices stay around the same

for sale section

You'll find some great buys on coilovers in the for sale section. Opinions differ on all the coilover brands and intended uses.

Personally id spend the extra money and buy them new. Too risky spending that kinda money on used stuff imo

Have you considered the Koni inserts - or do you want that hardcore coilover control? Can't blame you for that.

Any other suspension upgrades on your SRT4 - bushings, strut tower bars, aftermarket arms etc?

Just get them new. I brought coilovers that were used before that looked like there were in good shape, but they only lasted 7,000 miles before they started giving be issues.

i rode in a srt4 that had mopar stage 3 coilovers and i absolutely loved how that car handled. you cant hardly but then new anymore and last i checked they were the most expensive. i am curious if the bbc ones are just as good or not. theoretically any coilover should be > than spring/strut setup no?

yeah there was another thread saying stage 3's are discontinued but one of the guys showed a decent replacement that I plan to get. The KW V2's are I think around the same price as s3's and seem to be pretty nice, won't be able to say till I have them myself.
BC coils looked nice too though I planned on getting those till I was told about the others, if I'm still broke in spring time I'll probably end up getting the BC ones.
