How much did they cost, if you don't mind me asking? I got the Tein ones. I believe I paid about 130 for the set. Let us know how they feel! Those look beefy!

Megan makes quality products. I used them exclusively on my Prelude and will continue that loyalty on the 240 project.

Got mine on ebay from a guy called EBSTORES. Good prices, and his reputation is excellent. Price is around 120-130 + shipping, but I made a $100 offer + shipping and it was accepted.

The parts are well made, very thick, and easily adjustable with a good set of open ends. Should stand up to anything but stupidity.

I just completed a set plus Energy Susp Steering rack bushings. Reset the alignment due to the stock rods and worn bushings absolutely F-ING up caster and toe and I am amazed at the difference in consistent feedback and turn-in. The slush and float is completely gone. Make sure to use blue loctite and you will be good to go for a while.

Of course, I still have the stock struts and springs so the car has horrible roll, but this should be the first mandatory mod for anyone who is serious about performance.

[QUOTE]
I've had the traction links and toe rods on for about 3 months now, was under the car last week and everything is still in place and strong as ever.

well I guess for some folks, its whatever gets the job done.
Kazama Suspension for me. I'd rather save the bread and get top-notch.
