Gecko coilovers?

Was looking around on Ebay and came across these.
http://www.ebay.com/itm/111790286873...%3AMEBIDX%3AIT Has anyone heard about this company? They are built in Taiwan and sound very similar to the Ceika brand coilovers. I emailed the seller to get info on shipping and to find out how much it would be for camber tops on the front. I'll let everyone know what I find out.

Run away. Cheap coilovers are not worth their weight in dung.

Save your money and try to save more. Then buy a good brand of coilovers.

They are actually not a bad coil over, I don't have them but I have looked at them, and spoken to members that have used them.

Re: Gecko coilovers?

Rarely check in to the dusty ole network but SoobCrazys response was particularly Disheartening. Never understood why someone with zero hands on knowledge of a particular product is willing to speak in such a vulgar manner about something our community put so much blood sweat and tears into. So lets set the record straight. All of the dimensions for these coil overs were the product of the community itself in order to provide a cost effective set of suspension options. Gecko TSP and BC (Europe) are all identical products with just a few differences such as seals or oils. They are superior in every way to the community's previous options of either Koni/Ground control or god forbid someone have the misfortune of sourcing a set of coils from Andy. Our most cynical members have confirmed they turned out to be a fantastic value for the price and since NO ONE shells out the 3500+ for professional race grade covers for an svx the G-Race Option at just $150 more than the G-Streets (@850 Shipped World wide) have shown to be a fantastic option for those that choose to track Their pride and joys on the weekends. For those that preffer changes like softer spring rates closer to stock or something altogether custom it costs a modest $50 upcharge. http://www.svxnation.com/products-1.html

Lol. Any coilover system that only costs $1,000 is made for hard parking only. How many dedicated race cars run Gecko coilovers? How many podiums has this suspension company delivered? Go ahead, I'll wait...

How many top shelf companies have made anything for the SVX?

And more importantly how many SVX's are dedicated Race Cars?

I bought Cekia (however it is spelled) when they first were introduced in 2012, I chose my spring rates and other choices I paid $1200ish I drive hard I corner harder and they still work great. Could they be better of course but I have what is available and it makes me happy
