Hey i have the JICs and want to kno what the Real big difference is between the high end coilovers.

JIC has a pivotable top and can be adjusted with out spring rate (i think)
HKS ??? I dont kno much bout them
Zeal has a Two Tube design, but what does it do?

I kno this would help me as well as some other .netters

I don't think that zeal has a dual tube desgin or whatever you are talking about. I have the b6 and it has a shock that is a single tube. You can adjust the height of them by screwing up the or down the outer part around the shock. Maybe that is why you think it is a 2-tube system :-?

- I hear the ZEALS are great... I think HKS and ZEAL would be at the top...
- I would like to ride in someone's car equipped with ZEALS for a comparison, but then again it wouldn't matter much unless they were as low as me...

Dut, my car has been as low as about 3" down. It was were almost the entire rear tire was tucked and there was no difference in the ride from where it is now (2" down). I would say the ride on my car is still very near stock, but the tires just are stuck to the ground now. :)

I have also heard great things about HKS. I haven't used the two, so I cannot make a comparison. I will say that I am extremely please with my Zeals and they have exceded my expectations.
