Oh wow. I was gonna say if they were cheaper than $900, I'd try to get a set, but nevermind.

The FK Silverline coilover generation is a complete new dimension regarding quality, longevity and look. All housings, brackets and even the wrenches, which are included to each kit, are made of highly hand polished stainless steel.

The struts are time consuming polished by hand, which enhances the longevity and build quality. Stainless steel is much more resistant against corrosion as the also very high quality protected zink coated steel housings. The high quality look is just a side effect. All alloy parts, e.g. spring caps and locking nuts, are manufactured in the well known FK quality and are made of high density aircraft alloy, which leaves no space for compromises.

FK Silverline stainless steel coilovers are a direct improvement of the well-known and top-selling FK Highsport and FK K├ľNIGSPORT coilover systems. Please see more details at the appropriate pages on the FK Automotive web site.
FK-Automotive has a worldwide reputaton for producing the highest quality producst for German Autos, their coilover suspension kits are no exception to this commonly held belief. FK uses only the highest quality TUV approved parts

Changed some bushings, the plan was to do the entire rear but some rust put a temporary stop to that:(, will do the rest later when i figure out a way to get those bolts out of their rusty homes.
But anyway some pictures of the bushings i managed to change:)
First just to show the difference between the old and new :D
