I've heard others that have ordered springs from Whiteline say that it was a month wait for the springs. It's been over 5 weeks now and still my flatouts haven't arrived yet :cry:

Just wondering, anyone whos ordered Whiteline springs, whats the longest anyone has waited? I'm getting a little edgy.

They lied.

I waited 1 month, I think benji on here waited longer.
I didnt bother 2nd time around, went Lovells in the Sprint.

Their excuse to me was that they wait for a bunch of orders to come in for that particular type of spring before they mass produce them in some quantity.

Hopefully not too much longer but I am sure they'll be worth the wait.

Comforting to hear then.
Whiteline do recommend Konis for their springs but I'm getting Bilsteins instead with adjustable front swaybar. Would I notice much difference in anything between Konis or Bilsteins with these springs?

You may need to modify the outer link kits for the front sway bar, as they move too much and eventually get noisey. I made my own mountings.

I think the Control springs sit slightly lower than Lows... But I think the Flatout springs are Super Low equivalent.

Took 'em two weeks to get my swaybar (for the GT-P)

When I got the EL done, it was only a week, and springs/shocks/sway bars/bushes/etc. (ie. everything)
