hey guys,
just getting some opinions. I found these Coilovers on ebay just wondering if anyone has had experience with them and what you think :)

http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/FORD-FALCON- ... 3cb7080523

Note it says they are for ea-fg, are all of the front struts interchangeable??

They are only fronts too, anyone know if any brands make rear coilovers or would i just have to buy a set of koni adjustables or something similar.

By the way car is an EF xr6 sedan.

Cheers,
Corbin

P.s throw your suggestions at me if you have found better coilover set up for the e series, i cant seem to find much searching the net. Cheers :)

Pedders do a full kit for $1800 which has conventional coil over front struts and separate adj-spring and shock for rear.

How much did just the front set cost? Are they fully adjustable? If they were I'd probs get something like that and koni adjustables for the rear. Also looking at a whiteline swaybar for the rear

Do you require hight adj?
I would like to have a go at lathing a set of rear spring platforms like the pedders kit and run on a reset spring. They look prety basic.

I have koni reds (in the back) and they are only adjustable for rebound and they require removal to adjust :(

Yeh I'd only require height adjustment in front, pretty happy with the height of the rear at the moment just want it to be stiffer when cornering, and yeh you wouldn't be able to adjust height in the rear due to it being a non strut type.
