Hey Shcok you took your GC's out? What's the ride like with the Weapon R's? And how is the adjustibility, I know with GC's, it's one wrench, what's the deal with the Weapon R's?

yeah, i'm still confused why you would even think of swapping out GCs for WeaponR. Aren't WeaponR's only for people who can't afford the GCs?

when you get coilovers I know everyone get kyb shocks too, but which ones should I get put in and is it cheaper to order through the net? That's really cool that work well, I'm hoping they won't break easier in the long run, cause that piece that holds the 2 springs together looks kinda cheap. I guess I'm still debating over gc's or weapon r's, the regular price is nearly the same, but one is a trusted brand with really good springs, and the other is like mystery meat in a can.

Weapon R Circuit Pro C/O's

I had those installed in my 1st gen Altima, they dropped pretty good, and were pretty comfortable ride at that, the reason I had gotten them was because I wanted to be different, and they were a bargain, none the less, I did have them for a small period of time, but they were great performers.

I just talked to a shop a few minutes ago and the guy said he's installed both into cars that go to the shop and the ground controls he hasn't had much problems other than any other coilovers like dirt and corrosion at wrenching points. But the weapon r's he had some people come back and complain saying there's clanking noises after having them on for a while and there seems to be a lot of rusting. He knew that I wasn't going to buy them from his store that I would buy them from the net and have him install them, so the price wouldn't have really effected what he said.

if u just want to lower your ride and u don't have a need to adjust the height at all is there any point in getting coilovers?? Is there any aspect better about c/o over springs besides adjusting the ride height??

The way I see it, for us northeasternsers, we kinda almost have to go with coilovers if we want a crazy drop and a daily driver. You livin in Cali, can drop it all year 'round and have no problems. If we have a daily driver (like mine) and need to raise it for the winter, it's a hell of alot easier to do that than swap out springs....but that's my opinion. I will definetly get a set in the upcoming year.

About the rust and corrosion. There is a product they make that I saw on speedvison. You spray it on anything and it repels water. My theory you have to wd-40 your car every couple months to prevent rust in certain spots and to keep your car from making noises. But I am looking into that water repellant product. Damn I cant believe I dont know the name. I think its called charlies or something. Anyone know what I am talking about?

Cool, i think i'll just go with the springs then:)
Just remeber, you can also customize your coilovers like Orlando did to his and get an extra 1/2 inch of drop. Plus, it sounds like the Weapon R's drop a bit more according to shock. The most you'll get from springs is a 2 inch drop unless you cut coils and I would not suggest that. :eek:
