Yes, I have them on my fast and furious car...WOOHOO! Never used them yet though. The quality of product is AAA+++. They seem to be very stiff but mine are not broke in yet. Ride height is very low. If you have a body kit these might create a problem. Right now with my blitz bumper I have about 1.5" clearance with this suspension. I'm having a 1" billet spacer made and adding longer studs to my shock perch to gain a extra inch of height. These coilovers are ride height adjustable/ as well as dampening but are extremely low at highest point.

Yep, I have the Apex'i World Sport Coilovers, they kick major ass!! I've riden in a few other lowered cars on just spring/strut combos and they can't even compare to these. I love them to death!! Such a smooth ride, adjustable, look sharp too, when you can see them.

Well let see? I don't drive my car on a daily basis. Matter of fact I havn't driven it in over a year. So it will be a while Jackass before they will be broke in.

I've never heard of a suspension needing a break-in period. Neither has Chris, apparently.

So that's how you know how to park so well. You do it once, and never move it. Gotcha.

They do settle over time....It just that on here I'm wrong no matter what. I'm amazed the KNOW IT ALLS didn't know that. Check your alignment a couple of weeks after you put a suspension on...that will tell you something.

Well, some companies have an anti-sag warrantee, if that's what you mean. If the car settles more than a couple of millimeters, though, the springs are of poor quality.

I've read somewhere, someone who has the apexi WS coilovers, said they go through a break in stage where they ride hard at first then go to a stock feeling ride.

No. Any suspension "settle" is from you accidentally putting bushings in at odd angles or not installing stuff properly. If your springs change height or spring rate then they are shit.

and if it "settles" enough to throw off your alignment, theyre REALLY shitty. it takes a lot to throw off our alignment. "breaking in" and "settling" are two totally different things no00blet.

got_nx...whats with the gay sig?

as to the apex'i coilovers...theyre nice, but save up and get JIC's

too many bad stories about JIC's customer service
it's either Ground Controls or Tein SS but I am having a hard time justifying the extra $700 it costs to get them local...

Come on guys, He asked if anyone had them. Not if suspension needed to break in. They are a sleeve coilover correct? I say wait and put out the money for a full coilovers. Tein, Nex.

And no matter if suspension needs to "break in" or not it. It will never go back to stock ride feel. I would always suggest lowering springs w/good shocks. over coilovers anyday or at least Full coilovers if any. Sorry no experience w/the Apexi's.

No, the apexi WS coilovers are true coilovers.

Go for tein? I have no exprience with the Apexi's nor do I know anyone with those...But I have Tein type flex with the EDFC and I can surely vouch for them.

We've all been raised on television to believe that one day we'd all be millionaires and movie gods and rock stars. But we won't. And we're slowly learning that fact. And we're very , very pissed off"
