People probably bitch because a suspension failure at the wrong time could kill...but hey, at least they where cheap.

When I entered "raceland coilovers" in the search box I got back 255 replies. I am sure you will be able to find something of value to you if you if you did the same.

Screw the bogus warranty. Do they pay for removal? Do they pay for a rental while you're down for xx weeks? Will they pay for installation? An alignment? How about if it was a catastrophic failure and other parts are broken or you crashed? Your insurance would laugh and could deny the whole claim there as well, knowing it was a not for street use/aftermarket part.

Because tein's are also junk.

and btw, you can't sue them if their product fails. especially if you are dd'ing the car. "off road use only".

True true , not gonna argue with you. Got a point right there. And all I'm saying is people know what there paying for and know its not the best product, but still bitch that's all what I am saying. I just think its dumb, like they say " you pay for what you get". I had then no problems so I also guess its just people's luck

I've been on these things since winter 2010 and they are still doing pretty damn well! Still control the bumps in the road without being bouncy etc. And they aren't overly harsh like KYB AGXs that I had earlier. And keep in mind I live in the rust belt... I had originally bought them to hold me over for 2 years till I figure out something better, but I don't really see a need to do that right now. Wonder how much longer these will last.

+1 for Rust belt. :] I figure for $500 I could replace these every year. Geometry wise I am guessing they are 95% similar to another well know brand. I'm also willing to bet that their engineers were "inspired" *cough copied* one of the better designs already on the market.

Default raceland are just fine

Well i just put these on today and they feels pretty good. The customer service is great from RaceLand. They dont say these are meant to race everyday but more like daily driving and occasional track time. I got the ultimos and so far so good. I had TIEN on my old Evo 8 and remember how good those felt. These feel more bouncy and stiff. I didnt slam it out all stupid either. I just wanted something simple and these are gonna do just that.

I would def call them and ask.... Ask for Cody. He was very nice and answered all my questions. Or you can cross reference them at the dealer....like if the standard struts fit on the wrx/impreza and fits on your legacy then you will know it will fit. Worth a try.

Exactly, thank youuuuu.. Everybody bashes on them and the only people who do is the people who never even used them. Freak accidents can happen anytime, if they break then they break, call up Raceland and tell them, great customer service. What, you hear this squeak or clunk from suspension, so then that means put the radio louder dummy!

yeah, you can call and they'll replace the junk parts with the same exact junk parts that'll fail in the exact same way. i had these on my car for 8 months before i went back to a spring/strut setup until i could track down a set of coilovers actually worth having on the car.

only children think like you do.

i daily my car. the streets around my house broke them. i do drive a little spirited every now and then, but im closing in on 30 years old so i dont drive like a kid anymore. they were on my 06. at the end of the day these coilovers are still junk. if you have to make excuses about them then you're not helping anyone along with saying otherwise.

and considering 8 months is what i dealt with them (i drove to iowa and missouri on these coils that year), i find that to be a heavy fail. i should have been able to run them until the struts blew out before i got rid of them to be considered worth my time and money.

after getting s-techs and experiencing how bad suspension feels, I will never get racelands.
The interior noise alone is unbearable and makes you feel uneasy. Strange noises everywhere!
