FORTUNE COILOVERS SOLD
M2 LOWERING SPRINGS SOLD
Also, my friend with a 1st gen protege bought some lowering springs and the seller sent him the wrong ones. He gave them to me to sell because they're for a 3rd gen and he has no use for them. Brand new M2 lowering springs for 1999-2003 Protege and Protege5. Lowers front and rear 2". I hear M2 is made by Megan Racing. SOLD
EDIT: Found spring rates for M2 springs. Front: 179lbs / Rear: 145lbs
As some of you may know, I broke an end-link tab on my Fortunes as you can see on the first picture below. I contacted them and I was the first too apparently. They offered to weld the piece for a small price or I could purchase the entire piece new. Opted to have it welded by my friend. I got it welded before I posted it up for sale so the buyer wouldn't have to worry about handling that part. My friend that welded it said he and a coworker did an x-ray on the weld and there were no air pockets to be found on the weld. So you know it wasn't a "oh let me weld this up real quick" type of job. Will the end-link tab break again? I couldn't tell you
I bought them with 5000 miles on them. Rode on them myself for about another 5XXX so lets say they have no more than 11k miles on it.
EDIT: I forgot to mention that the MSP has longer front end-links and it won't work. You will need the end-links out of a normal protege because they're shorter. The rear end-links work just fine though.
They do look a little rusty, but the rings spin fine. I'm missing one of the dampening adjusters. Will only come with 3.
