    AVOID ! completely , i installed gecko coilovers on my 2012 civic and i lost ride quality , handling and i was going to have an accident , i also discovered that i had a faulty spring rear and wheel mount from day one which they refused to change , not mentioning the clunking and noisy sounds ... i just threw them away and saved my soul

    Good job, I think stock suspension is actually better most of the time, except for maybe a sway bar, lighter wheels and better tires. The roads are around here a third world not even second. The state is non functional, you could only find worst was with the last governor.:thumb:

    I’ve not seen one person comment or use gecko coils here to know how good or bad they are. Were they really cheap?

    looks like they are around $1,000. Apart from them being defective, usually coilover's do have a harsher ride, when you go lower with suspension you lose suspension travel and they make the dampers/struts harder to compensate. did they have the adjustable damper?
