    This probably should have went in the suspension or off topic section but I just couldn't help it! I'm super pumped if this deal follows through!

    Long story short I've been looking for a good set of used coilovers for about a week now. Didn't really want to pay over $300-$400 on a set. So I'm browsing around when I come across a set on Ebay made by Light Racing that recently sold for $590 shipped which are supposed to be Icon's re-branded. I found out who the seller was and sent a message to see if they had any other sets. A woman replies stating they have one used set left that they planned to list today. She sends me some pics and says she doesn't know the history and guess how much she wants?? $150 shipped for the set!!! :eek:

    Whats even better is that their actually a set of older Donahoe coilovers and look to be in GREAT shape!! I sent the money and she sent me a tracking number a few hours later. God I hope this goes through!

    I called Icon earlier and they want $60 per spring to rebuild them. I'm going to go for it just for that piece of mind. So basically I SHOULD be getting a close to new set of Donahoe/Icon 2.5 coilovers for under $300! Hells yeah!

    I'll post pics when they arrive and yes, my near new 5100's with Eibach springs will be for sale soon. :cool:

    How are the Eibach & 5100 combo in terms of ride & handling? Which setting was it on, 1.6" or 2.5 lift?
