Default Fortune Auto 500 Coilovers

Does anybody on here have a set of these Fortune Autos?
If not i just bought a set and will keep you guys up to date on the quality of the product and improvements from installing these coilovers.

Wow! i replaced the upper and lower a-arm bushings with polyurethane bushings as well as the Fortune Auto 500 series coilovers. They are legit, I just got the stock pre-set settings for the mk3 which is 14k(F)/8k(R). But they offer custom valving and such. Pics will come soon. Each coilover was 5lbs lighter than the stock ones.

The only downfall to these coilovers is the height adjustment after the system has been installed on the vehicle. If I'm not mistaken the only way to adjust the ride height is to disassemble the bottom strut bolt, sway bar end link, and upper ball joint just to thread the body of the shock where it's needed, so as to not mess with the spring preload. Which is way too time consuming if you're at a track.
Mind you this is only for the front, the rear only takes about 30mins or so to do.

it shows weight difference and what the car looks like after being lowered. Idk if this pic is before or after I've adjusted the height tho.
I know it's hard to tell but there is at least a 41/2 to 5 lbs difference between stock and the Fortunes
Ignore the other pics
I haven't had a pic of the entire stance of the car yet.

After a month and half of tuning, abusing, and riding the suspension set as hard as I do! I am more than pleased with this product, Fortune Auto gets an A+ from me. Soft when you have female friends and really stiff when your stupid buddies in the passenger seat start asking, okay let's see what it can do... The fact that you can get them rebuilt here in the States where they were made is also good for a spirited driver on a budget. Also they will give you all the custom treatments you could want from a suspension company.
