i was actually thinkin of konis as they generally get a good write up but i cnt find a place that sells them
ive tried googling it and stil no results

if i dont find konis itll probably b a fight between gaz or spax.

Sure they do.  After-all, the standard gtt front suspension is a coilover set up.

Yes, the gtt has a Macpherson strut suspension setup.  Now where is the coil?

Coilover is short for coil/spring over strut.  The coilover is one component of the MacPherson strut suspension setup:

I have Koni suspension on one of my gtt's and they are adjustable, therefore Koni do an adjustable coilver.  And very good they are to, much better than the Avo's on my other gtt  :)
