I don't know if Jon feels the same way, but coming from a platform where Coilovers were dime a dozen, I feel that megan isn't the greatest.

Dampening, spring rates, tests, I don't think compare to other companies. I'm not saying it is a bad coilover, but there are better ones out there.

Megan pros:
-Full threaded body
-Cheap
-Availability
-Availability
-Availability

honestly, having toyed around with a few different coils in the past, the megans are GREAT if you plan on just going low and driving around on the street, but the damping characteristics and quality aren't really what you wanna use if you plan on seriously tracking your car. for the LS though, they're fine. Only coil i'd get other than the Megans would be the Tanabe Super Low form coilovers, with run nice stiff spring rates to let you drive REALLY low.

I didn't say they were bad, I would love a set of megans!

adjustability, availability, and price. You simply cannot really beat it.

JIC is also very hit or miss with both quality and service, and for the price, i can't stand for it.

She's washed, but man, she needs a claybar, wax, etc hardcore.

Also, I have no idea why it looks like my lower door panels are dented. They're perfectly straight.
