  • Not all coilovers are made in Taiwan though. Those are all made by the same manufacturer but there are good coilovers like KW and shocks from Bilstein and Koni.

  • Yea at this point 16 years later we are going to have or almost going to have self driving electric cars by that time but I'm still holding on to my 01 Impreza sedan a wagon would be better hauling plywood and what not with the proper tiedowns

  • Really makes me glad to hear you call Marty a friend--just something great as an audience member to genuinely think about your similar interests and content resulting in a positive relationship. Also very happy that build has grown your viewership, as well. Always impressed by the work you do, and your cameo in a Project Binky episode a while back was a nice plus, too.

  • Hey guys. I have a 2000 Outback with the 5sp manual and the 4wd lever. There doesn't seem to be any synchro left when trying to go from 2nd to 1st ( basically have to come to complete stop to get it into 1st). Is this 1 of the normal issues with the 5 speeds?

  • Those look like maxpeedingrods coilovers.. they have a history of snapping. Wouldn't advise for your son's car. I may be wrong tho.

  • Love the could've rant, cause lets be realistic here, you can throw coilovers into 4 main price categories and atleast in the unbranded eBay and generics base model branded one there's really nothing in it until you get into the high end stuff. But even then the whole one's good and the other is trash thing is ridiculous

  • Tbh I've run cheap and expensive coilovers and the cheap ones really are shit 😂 they're good if you just want big lows, but make the car so bouncy compared to standard suspension or expensive coilovers. But at the end of the day, everyone has a budget and it's good you can get a cheap set if that's what you want.
