Does it work out to the same price when you add the shocks?

Question One question:

when do coils become coil overs?

I thought our set up's came w/coilovers, ie shock coil assembly; except that some aftermarket sets are Adj Coilovers. Just curious

Its all symantics

Technically, any spring that goes over the shock is a "Coil over". People have started calling adjustable coil overs simply "coil overs". I have given up trying to tell people that the base suspension IS a Coil over.

Thanks Chris, just wanted to make sure I was not smoking crack

Nah, but I hear you on that, once a term is in play, might as well go with it... Coilovers they are LOL...

Yep! Jhodge is correct. 885's are the OME springs you want. Use with the OME n140s shocks for the best ride.
