If everyone is selling them for 2999 then they may have increased pricing since the last time I checked. bummer

Whats your spring rate?

Does anyone know if these coilovers work with the gendron sway bar?
I'm about 1.5 inches from stock height. It's been 10+ years since i've been stock height so this is all I know It may be more but it's a nice drop and doesn't look ridiculously low.

Wheels are Volk ce28 17X9 255

10K front 8K rear. You can opt to put the fronts in the rear and go 12k in the front. I'm gonna really test these out before I even think about doing that.

They should work with any sway bar.

Ohlins is not going to beat anyone on price, but there really is no comparison to anything below $3k. Their only limitation is that they are single adjustable, but that really is a good thing as you wont get lost. Each adjustment changes compression and rebound where most SA only adjust compression. Thus each adjustment has a matching compression and rebound. What sets these apart is the unique damping. Read here.

I had Motons before, which are essentially the same design as JRZ, AST & MCS as they all spun off from JRZ. Ill get shot for saying this, but they are a better damper than these shocks that are $3k to $5K with all accessories. So even at $3k, there is a lot of value.

Bottom line, despite the less features, the damping is light years ahead. One of my customers dropped 1-2 second on autoX courses with these dampers over konis and routinely gets FTD, beating National AutoX on JRZ/Motons & Penskes.

It is all in the reviews. Not one negative review from any DFV on any car. If the dampers make you more confident, then you will drive faster and safer.

Bought my shocks from Urge and could not be happier. I had Group 2 in Seattle install the kit, alignment and wheel balance done. Drive home was great! I am now working with # of click settings.

I'll just add that a local is consistently placing first in STR on DFV's. For all the smack talk against them from scca autocrossers, they are doing quite well. I kind of wish I went with them for ease of adjustability, monotube response, and points savings in NASA TT (if I ever get to it, lol) due to no reservoirs.
