Are the Feal 443s really worth almost $6k?Those are HKS Hypermax II's if they say 'Damper' on the tag, they're HKS Hyper-D (higher spring rates, intended for track/drifting etc) if they say Hyper-D on the bottom of the tag. These are older style coilovers that cannot adjust height without changing spring preload.
Either way they're long discontinued, and likely need a rebuild. Weirdos like me would be interested in them just out of nostalgia, but if you were shopping now there's new stuff available that's superior like the Feal 441's or Fortune Auto 500's.
Considering that a similar three-way adjustable coilover setup from Penske or Moton starts around $8-10k by the time it's ready for your chassis of choice, yes.Are the Feal 443s really worth almost $6k?
I hear you - I've been budgeting around $3k for coilovers, then saw these were 2x that and went "Ok, but are they really that much better?"Considering that a similar three-way adjustable coilover setup from Penske or Moton starts around $8-10k by the time it's ready for your chassis of choice, yes.
An 'install-ready' three way adjustable kit built to your desired specs and purposes for $6k is a pretty good value if you're that sort of customer. Few are.
IMHO Suspension is the most under-funded part of most builds. It surprises me about many people will comfortably spend $3000 on a turbo, $2000 on a manifold, $3500 on wheels, and $8000 on a built longblock - but balk at the idea of spending $1500 on a set of decent coilovers.
