Was browsing around for our Toyota Corolla coilover options: BC, Megan, KW...(which seem to be more various than struts/shocks) and found these:
Maxspeedingrods Adjustable Coilover Kit.
I found these on there website was wondering if anyone has these on there car ? and how the ride quality is ? This is my first time hearing about them, and they look pretty.

Haven't heard of anyone running those on their Corolla.  Seems to be a UK based vendor selling Chinese made knock-off coilovers.  They say they've been in business for decades, but since I haven't been able to run across any older reference to them - sounds more like a typical knockoff vendor to me trying to drum up sales for substandard product that visually looks nice - get too many complaints, then changes their name to something else.


Only review I've run across for those coil-overs is on a Subaru forum - they basically summed them up to being a crap product.  Poorly made casing, missing certain attachment points, adjustable rebound and damping seemingly to have no effect, oil seals leak quickly leading to strut damage, spring rates that do not match their advertised rates.


Usual rule of thumb for any performance parts - you get what you pay for.  "Fancier" appearance is almost always a dead giveaway of parts quality being pretty poor,  Looks doesn't generally equate to quality, if anything, it should be a warning that the parts are knock-offs or inferior made ot look like some of the more well-known brands.
