Default JIC Magic Coilovers GS 06+ RWD

SOLD!


Car has been put back to stock to be handed to the pregnant wife. Therefore I have no interest in dumping more cash into this car or rebuilding these to sell them.



I got this setup last summer used from another member on the board with about 20k miles. I put another 5k miles on them and at this point they should be rebuilt. These are excellent quality coilovers and you may notice the rear setup does not require your OEM top hats. As far as drop goes, they go lower than our cars physically can drop. I ran them about 50% of the possible drop. I ran low enough to wear our one of my rear drive axles and 4 degrees of camber in the rear. Passnu2 (Mike) helped me with the installs and will hopefully peak in here to mention HOW much these can drop your car. There aren't many JIC setup's out there as JIC Japan has gone out of business. JIC USA is still producing and servicing their product line. Before I knew there would be an addition to the family I intended on having these rebuilt and below you will find some information from JIC on this. This setup cost $2700 brand new.

You will receive the lowering tools, a dampening adjustment tool and the front/rear coilovers.
You must be prepared to have these rebuilt.

Subject: RE: Rebuild Coilover

Rebuild rate will be $180 per damper. We recommend doing them in pairs so if you have one front done we recommend doing both fronts so they are even left and right. That is bare damper only price so please remove the upper mounts, lower mounts and springs before shipping them in. All of the rebuild information can be found under the support center on our website. Please fill out an RMA request under the support center before you ship in your dampers.
thank you
Bryan

Installed and removed them for the OP. Best riding coils I have experienced with the GS. I was going to purchase them myself prior to selling my GS.

Any chance of getting them rebuilt and sent over to Australia?
I can sort some sort of agreement with you?

Ride was getting choppy when I took them off. When they were completely uninstalled I noticed one of the rears was leaking.

With the miles they have I would strongly encourage the buyer to rebuild them.

These are still in the garage collecting dust. Have had quite a few inquiries over the past months but no solid commitment.

$200 shipped via UPS Ground. Be prepared to rebuild them, Possible winter project to have the BEST coilovers for the GS3?
