Yes I'll be installing them myself. I've done everything on my car. I know a lot will not buy because they think they are too expensive. I've seen and bought way more expensive ones in the past. These are really nice quality pieces.

I purchased a set of these HSD coilovers and can not wait to have my mechanic install them for me. He is quite knowledgeable and teaches automotive courses to students interested in a career. I trust him and he has done all my aftermarket modifications. He says HSD is a good company and that he has a friend with the Genesis race cars. It is my understanding they use the HSD coilovers. He also says I will see quite a difference in the improved ride quality and performance. I know the parts are pricey, but good suspension parts are that way.

Totally Agree there:)
HSD has won 3 years in a row in Korea at the Race track in ALL the Genesis race cars and are an inverted montube doesign and progressive spring technology what sets them apart from other coilover companys around!!
This is what makes HSD a smooth comfortable ride:)

It's gonna be a hard sell. Most of the folks here won't spend the cash on their cars. Or they'd rather have chrome or light up stuff..

thats not the only issue, Theres also the issue that in order to go low there is some modification required, simple if you know what youre doing.

Also, guys dont get too caught up in in the "they are used on race cars that win"
So is the majority of other manufacturers but they also produce crap sometimes too. (not saying these are crap)

But we need to remember the race versions are not what we get on the street

Im simply reminding users on here that are not as educated in coil over technology that what they are buying is not the same quality or caliber as those used on race cars.

I understand they are decent quality coils, some of the smoother ones, but not the end all be all. There are many manufacturers out there that hopefully will produce sets in the very near future (although it doesnt look likely) and I say this based on previous experience, usually in coil overs you get what you pay for, and these appear in the mid range (specs and price) making them a nice streetable drive still. You'll still have your fillings in your teeth with these ones :)
