Any one ever used this brand??...........Are they any good??................
not heard that name for a while! are they still going?! i dont think many if any people use jamex on here on their MK4's really? People tend to use H&R, eibach, FK, koni, KW. Jamex are old skool! Didnt they rename under GMAX? If so, STAY WELL AWAY!

No, GMAX is a seperate company.

Jamex are a German brand........they are the cheapest I have found for springs (?75 delivered)

Only thing that worrys me is I am getting a good deal or is it like everthing else you pay for what you get............meaning are they just cheap sh**e???????????

I had Jamex shocks n springs on my old VR6 for a while and they were pretty good tbh... I only changed them because I wanted coilovers so I could go lower

I am running jamex on mine, only fitted springs. didnt change dampers.

depends on what mileage your dampers have done already. If already high mileage then think about changing em, but I would say if you were gonna change dampers you might as well get a matched kit.

I have just fitted a set of 35mm ones to my car, they have made it sit nice but with standard shock's it seems quite bouncy, so I would recomend changing the shocks aswell

You can buy jamex height adjustable coilovers on ebay for around £200 mark new. People rate them ... Vmaxx quality but abit cheaper, also similar are JOM. They come with 3 yrs Gtee too so cant be that bad! ... Just stay away from raceland/hottuning/rokkor (mainly from belgium)
