    Currently i have the UPR coilovers on factory struts on my car. They are ridiculously noisey because the threaded sleeves fit like crap on the struts (about 3/16" larger than the strut). The noise doesnt bother me to much, but it would be nice to get rod of the sleeves and go to a threaded strut setup.

    I have been looking at the viking struts but havent found much info, and at $1,000 for 2 struts and the coilover hardware kits, thats alotta coin for little to no feedback on them. Has anyone used these? If not, what all is everyone else tried/suggest?
    The car will be primarily a street/strip car. I'd like a double adjustable setup so i can adjust for the strip and then the twisties for later.


    Thanks,
    thomas

    you should go with griggs...lol hahah, i think most people like mm which i think is bilstein struts. the griggs system uses koni and then theres also the full eibach kit for like 1200 or something but its all 4 corners not just front struts
