Coilovers question
« on: 19:54, Mon 18 July 2011 »
Hello mates,

Well basically I just bought myself a pair of front coilovers from ebay and am waiting for their delivery..

At first I thought they where in a bad condition but in the auction description the seller claimed they where in a very good condition -- on a second and closer look at the photo they seemed very dirty, but as the seller said, in a good condition.

I messaged the seller and asked him about their condition -- No leaks, threads in a good condition and fully functional and adjustable damper also fully functional.

Thing is he does not know the brand because he removed them from a car he broke. This is where I need you guys -- does anyone recognize what brand are these coilovers ??

Gaz sold some with blue springs on but then that's if they are the original springs, they do look very dirty and rusty

yeah thats what made think they're Gaz because they tend to rust as they're not powder coated

Could be Gaz but Avo's are also known to rust alot aswell but as said the springs are blue which normally I would say and old set of Gaz,  you can rule out them spax by looking at adjuster thread going pretty much all the way down spax coilovers don't go that far down at all as they only allow a 60mm drop max.
