I picked up some ksport coilvers for a really good deal the fronts were slightly bented and the back is flawless, the asorber on the fronts seems bent like barely though. It seems I can still mount it on but I'm not sure if it'd be driveable.

I was planning to sell my springs to get the asorber repaired, but in order to do that I would have to put something on my car to ride on for a bit. Would you think it's safe to ride on a sort of bent shock asorber?

I would really advise against it seeing it can really throw my alignment off, but I'm not sure what would you guys recommend?

Cheap way out and unbend it myself? HAHA I'm kidding, but yeah, if you dont have any positive feedback then just don't respond i need serious answers.

There is a limit to how big of a perfectionist some car people can be...

There is a limit to how cheap of car person you can be.

Brand new K-sports are cheap.

Saving some money and buying bent K-sports..? Talk about being real cheap.. :shakehead
