They are called coilover sleeves.

Same concept as how people do things like heating the spring to compress it more, or using clamps and such, even cutting springs for some.

The coilover sleeves probably have very bad spring rates when uncompressed, and probably sag like no other.

I'd do it if I were driving a '90 prelude, otherwise, not on a 2007 vehicle.

That's because Ground Control is a reputable brand with a reliable track record for making quality stuff.

These on the other hand, haven't been proven to be safe or reliable so the owner is taking a huge risk.

There are many more things that I could save money on, but I personally wouldn't trust my life to cheap suspension parts.

I meant, the lifespan of the springs probably aren't that great, they may eventually decrease in spring rates and actually compress a bit more themselves.

springs usually have a million mile warranty. Reputable brands such as tein, H&R, and eibach has it which I know of... Springs rarely wear out, and once it settles in, it stays like that.

But there are springs out there that really suck such as sprint. They are known to wear out over time. Personally, I wonder how springs wear out, but I guess if the springs really suck, it happens.

Trust reputable brands when it comes to your safety. When it comes to rims, tires, and suspension, I always pay top notch. Safety is more important than saving a few bucks.
