    Hi Guys,

    So we were looking for some TEIN coilovers or some other HKS adjustable suspensions.
    Would it be okay to buy a used one (decent) or get a new one.

    Brand new Set of four - TEIN costs - 1600$

    used ones we can get for fair price of about 800$

    i got mine used, if u got the money then new is worth it because one of mine is blown now. that one has about 15k on it. but if u find some really cheap then used is ok if the condition is good.

    he'll have to take it out to find out :D, anyways, i would suggest you go for a new set of coilovers, but why do you want to spend that kinda money? aren't there upmarket replacements available for the skyline? if you happen to buy these, you'll need a guy to set it up for you, ride hieght, damping rates(if they are fully adjustable that is)

    wow that guy cheaped out alot!!! and i adjust the coils at home all the time. not hard at all, takes about 10 mins per corner. jus have to count the threads so the ride height will be the same... damper wise, lots of test drives were u can take hard corners ;) hahha
