    It's cheap eBay junk. Don't expect much from them.
    1994 Acura Integra GSR - 370K miles, a few mods
    2014 Mazda CX-5 Touring - 96K miles, the family hauler
    2000 Mazda Miata LS - 155K miles, the corner carving machine!

    I have CS springs and the struts are at 60k, so soon I may need new struts and I'm not sure what should I get? Just aftermarket sport struts, than?

    Tbh that's a good deal. I've heard mostly negative feedback from CS springs, coming from people who drive lowered cars. At least those comes with struts that have adjustable valving. Keep them clean and the threads lubed (you live in CA anyways) and you'll probably be good. Cx racing is like the reputable "cheap" brand. Most negative feedback I hear on cheap coilovers (specifically raceland) come from people running clapped out miatas with the coils at lowest setting (usually collar removed) and max stiff valving.. or the collars seize (not cleaned/lubed and in the salt belt).. cheap car product attract cheap buyers who often have janky setups already lol..

    $1k is to much, I don't want to spend that much.
    We don't deal with rust in LA.
    I need them for a few years, until I get something else.

    Chris, would you recommend the BC coilovers? Would I bottom out with these?

    I've only owned bc racing so I don't know about cx first hand. But I heard good things. If you are bottoming out with coilovers it's a height/valving setting. They also have for like $100 more camber plate versions

    No no, I was referring to the BC coilovers.
    They usually go on sale on Thanksgiving, right?

    Like I said, whether you bottom out or not depends on how you set the height and dampening. I don't know if the official BC racing site will have a sale, but vendors doing business with them usually do.
