Default Anyone near El Paso TX ???

I've been talking to Donald at Yellow Speed Racing in El Paso TX about getting coilovers made for the S-Series. He's willing to add our car to their list. But he needs a car to measure. He says it will take about an hour and half to get it done.

Is there anyone near El Paso willing to drive in and and let the guys at the shop take measurements?

This would be a good opportunity to get your suspension inspected. My guess is that if you say pretty please they'll do it for free while they are in there anyway. You will also be helping out the S-Series community at large, since we will afterwards finally have high-end bolt-on coilovers that don't need drilling or adapting.

A coilover gets its name simply that its a coil spring over a shock absorber.
Usually done to either lower the suspension or to 'tune' it for performance.

^^^ What he said. However in my case, it's what he said in order to replace badly done lowering springs stuck onto worn out factory struts on a car I just bought.

I need to get five people to do a group buy, (individually paid for direct to Yellow Speed Racing and drop shipped direct to you). Then the price goes from $980 to $850 for a set of four for bolt on coilovers, which up to now we've not had the option to buy (because nobody makes them for our cars)

Still need to find someone with an S-Series near El Paso.
