they are top adjustable

so they are not coilovers. they are totally different to what he's after.

:?  They ARE coilovers.  As I stated above, coilover is short for coil over strut.  The coil is over the strut, therefore they are a coilover design.

Both of the links you have posted are for coilovers, they're just different styles of coilovers  :)

oh god...well

wen i said i was lookin for coilovers i didnt mean coils/springs over strut and whatever else was stated as an example
i meant adjustable coilover suspension setup...as most kno when you say i want coilovers.

i get the point wen u say coil over strut and what not but thats jus bein fussy.

its like me asking wer i can buy a specific type of alloy wheel..ie a multispoke by kei or somthin
then a million folk sendin me links to a fabricating company that make metal gates and fabricate alloy products...and sayin its still alloy.
or send me links to some whell thats total opposite design and sayin its still a wheel.

sorry bout the examples but i had to point this out to a guy on another forum the other day as he was bein a complete arse about nothin.
