Where are the rear height adjusters?

Why are you selling? I might be interested.

Any tracking on these?

How would you compare these to say KW V3, KW CS, TCK, AST, etc

I don't see the rear height adjustors.

These are great coils. Single adjustable, but mono-tube design with the adjuster on the bottom of the strut up front and on top in the back.

I haven't tried the other coils listed above, but anyone who's riden in my car has said the ride it very good for daily driving. They're obviously great on the track.
The Porsche guys like them a lot and some have referred to them as Moton's on a budget.

If you're in SoCal, JIC is located in Alhambra and can install them for you too. I think this kit and mine are the only ones out there. I'm guessing these were on Paul Walker's car before he upgraded.

Thanks guys


These have only seen two track days and no public roads. As stated above they were on our M3 Race Car. Only reason for selling is because we're trying to clear our space in our shop.

You never answered any of the questions ^

What can they be compared to?
Is there a rear height adjuster?

Look at the rear shock, the whole body is threaded. It's adjustable.

I'm not technically inclined with these sorts of products. But that's good to know. Thanks

Our suspensions are not a true coil over in the back, so there's a height adjustment ring that sits under the rear spring that adjust the height. I don't see it here. I'm pretty sure you can get one from JIC if they don't have them.

This set was custom tuned by Jon of JIC. I have a few pics of their shop and his cars in the Cali section.

We actually had these shocks hand built by JIC specifically for our Time Attack E92, so they work really well on the track. They were custom valved with better fluid and proper spring rates for the track. The shocks have great feedback and they are very responsive which make them really confidence inspiring. They don't take a long time to get used to so you can really start putting down fast lap times as soon as you get them onto the car.

In comparison to the other shocks mentioned, they would be on par (or better) track wise with the CS's or even TC's. They aren't double adjustable like them, but because they were built to spec specifically for the track they would be in the same range (time wise) at the track. They are much better than a V3 which is also single adjustable. The AST's use a shock like Moton's, JRZ's, etc.. so these aren't in the same range but these still work great on the track. Most of our competitors used JRZ coilovers and we were very competitive with them on the JIC's and that's without a pro driver.

The only reason we aren't using them now is because we got sponsored by Ohlins and so we custom built a TTX Motorsport Suspension Setup. But the JIC's did great and we definitely liked them. They are in amazing condition. They were built one off specifically for our race car by JIC so they aren't just an off the shelf option like the other kits available. These are built to track.

Rear height adjustment would look like this from a KW set

We're looking for the rear height adjusters right now. They weren't pictured but we have them floating around the shop somewhere.

Spring rates are unavailable. They were made in house at JIC. They are intended specifically for track application. So they're a little more expensive than what they currently offer.
