You should write ads for Raceland. Decent quality parts don't go out so you don't have to pay anything out of yo booty.

OK, read thru most of this. One question ....Has anyone used them at the dragstrip? I need something to stiffen up the rear so I stop spinning.

Not sure if anyone has used them, but if that's your only desire they might work. It's a cheap way to get a stiffer spring. That said, the shock load that a drag launch can put into the rear dampers might cause some concern for long-term durability. It also seems that Raceland uses a rather soft rear spring compared to other coilover options. Hard to argue with cheap, but for $1000 or $1200 you can get something that is going to get you a stiffer rear spring and better overall quality and durability.

i think the rear springs are going to be too soft and once you preload the hell out of them they just plain suck (which i would assume would be a common issue among most coilovers). i would look into spring blockers and use those with a set of lowering springs or the stock springs.

I have Rokkor coilovers(which is a sister company to Raceland)...I had ordered a set of Raceland's but they were out of stock so they sent me Rokkor's, exactly the same thing. But anyway, I love them and for the price you definitely can't beat them.

Not sure if this has been answered, but I have a set of gc raceland coilovers for my car, and the front ones went on perfectly, but the rear tophat 3-bolt screws don't line up with the oem holes. What can I do about this? has this happened to anyone else?

any info would be appreciated

Pete

I think that means you have GD top mounts.

I have a question.
The front has adjustable camber but the rear doesn't. Will the rear need camber bolts to be in spec?

If you are going to go cheap at least go with a company that has Subaru Motorsports experience and has put some thought into delivering some quality on the cheap. FEAL 441.

I also ran racelands for quite a while, from completely slammed(just for temporary fun), to a somewhat moddest ride height, no issues. If you go into it expecting a $500 ride quality, youll be ok, that highway story is something to think about though. Good luck

My friend has had these on his bmw e46 for about 2 years and while he is still running them I can say from experience they are not high quality. He has already had two shocks/ struts replaced. I would not recommend these.

They are ok! You got a 2year warranty so doesn't matter if they break or what ever. You can call them and they'll replace them! I don't know why people bitch? You know what your buying so don't complain. There good for Dailey driving. I had them and then switched to tein street coils and I can't really tell a difference besides a little bit more comfort.
