In my opinion they are garbage. And I say this from my firsthand experience. Here are my 3 reasons:

1. they will raise your car up. Ok fine, so lets lower the car back down. Nope, the coilovers are set to a normal 'low' position and the shocks are completely bottomed out. NOT COOL! Raised the coilovers back up, now the shocks aren't bottomed out but the car looks like a jacked up monster truck.

2. Their monoball balljoint thing was completely siezed up on both left and right camber plates. I even greased them up, used them in the car for a week hoping they would break free, and nothing worked. While turning they would make the suspension pop like a mofo.

3. The camber adjustment settings are not marked in any way other than some mere notches. Compared with any other camber plate brands for a 944, these seem barbaric. I was overall just very unpleased with my set and returned them as soon as I could. Hopefully this will save you the trouble!

I wouldnt pass that headache along to anyone else except the company you bought them from. Plus they will refund your entire purchace instead of trying to sell them for a lower cost anywhere else, especially to others who may already know of their downfalls.
