.Have a 02 Wrx, car was crashed so some rear suspension was swapped for a 06 (previous owner). Dumbass never torqued down all the bolts but it was still loose. (didnt really think anything of it -dumb). Put these coils in, adjusted them by the spring (stupid on my part). Now, just Got a new wheel bearing and rear sway bar bracket, all suspension tightened. Runnin 225 45 18x8.75 xxr 527s, front lowered and rear is raised. Rubs on turns/ but handles amazing.. I use to get speed wobbles going 80mph wot. I did 5th gear pulls the other night on the highway and it felt like a totally different car. Also WOT 3rd gear sharp turns, stock td04 stage 2 catless overboostin 20psi cause the weather. Good coils

Ive had maybe 6 sets of these. 3 including subaru's, 1 forester and 2 wrx's and I have no issues with these for the price. I have ultimos on wrx wagon now and had the ultimos on a VW and both rode fine for being low. Ive had higher end coilovers and bagged 2 cars and for the price these arent bad for someone just wanting to slam their car. Customer service is great if you have any issues. You get what you pay for but some people just dont care.

HERE IS MY OPINION~ (and yes, it is long)(I HAVE OWNED RACELANDS)

I am new on here, so if I hold no credibility on this site then so be it, I don't really care. Before my 2010 WRX Sedan I owned a 2007 MK5 Rabbit. This rabbit was dropped on its ballsack, for MORE THAN TWO YEARS. I PUT 50k+ MILES ON RACELAND COILOVERS, WITH AGGRESSIVE DRIVING AND AN IDGAF ATTITUDE BRING ON POTHOLES NOW!

This being said, I was INCREDIBLY SATISFIED. I have ridden in cars of all shapes and sizes, with several varieties of coils and bags. I have ridden in stanced hoopties and aggressive racers. All around, these coilovers got the job done for me. Most importantly, THEY NEVER BROKE DOWN. I had my fronts slammed 2.7" all the way down to the furthest point they could go, and my rears were at 2.5" which was as far as they could go. I could ride around with FIVE people in my 3door hatch, and I never constantly scrapped while riding along with a full load of people (5 people did make me look even more slammed).

All in all, they are pretty good for the price. Mine did not have any dampening qualities, and I just left them as is and enjoyed the hell out of them. YES, you did feel every bit of the road, but that is what I liked about them. You could feel your car. You became apart of the car. The steering went from loose and lifeless to stiff and responsive. When I put NITROGEN in my low profile tires, it took away a lot of the road noise and feeling like you can feel every single 1mm divot in the pavement. I took these things up to 127mph over bumpy back roads, and I did not die nor did they fail. I hit the same bridge flex joints in my WRX at 70,80, and 90 MPH and it feels like I hit a ****ing concrete barrier, and with my Raceland coiled MK5, and they felt THE EXACT SAME. I am on an Epic Engineering suspension with my WRX. I rode around on my steel stock wheels, and the car looked great, it rode great, and I was happy for the rest of my years owning the car. The person I sold it to is STILL ENJOYING THE SAME SUSPENSION.

That is the end of my rant about these coilovers. I am more than likely ordering a set for my 2010 WRX Sedan once I hear back from Raceland if they are compatible with my sedan, seeing as I have found ZERO REVIEWS FOR 2008+ IMPREZA RACELAND COILS. They have been out of stock for a couple of months now, so I am assuming they must be popular among WRX owners. Their next production batch is due the last week of May. I will post a full review for anyone who is interested for an 08+ WRX. If anyone on this forum has owned these coils for an 08+, will you please post about it now. I am curious as to others feedback on their current status.

So even though this thread is retarded old im gonna bring it back. A few things to consider with any aftermarket product company in the game.

1.Every company started off with nothing and no rep. Even Apexi. When people start companies they don't always have loads of cash to build the best product so they build something they would be willing to use.

2.Companys build better products and reputation by selling more product. NOT but dumping 5 million dollars into starting it and going straight with a 1 piece forged wheel.
I see more people running xxr's then I do Works. Why? Not because of quality, because of price and customer service. I can promise you that if you blew one of this coilovers out within 2 years they will send you another one. ( I blew one of mine out on a pothole the size of Jupiter they sent me another one the next day in the mail!).

With that being said car people buy things for their cars because THEY want it if YOU are driving YOUR car and no one else is why the hell should you buy something you can't afford? Because of status?

If you are buying one of these cars for status you are buying for the wrong reason.

"Hey bro just got my 2k coilover suspension in the other day". What? " No I don't track my car, I just wanna slam it".

^^Pure retarded. no one will ever see your coilovers unless they are looking for them or the wheel is off. Unless you constantly drive other people to work and from the bar then they really should have no say on how your car handles or its safety they are already trusting you by getting in your car.

Your own safety is on your hands. That's just my .02

Just because a coilover is $2k doesnt mean its a dedicated track coil or wont handle and last long great for daily driving.
This boils down to people are gonna buy what they want because they want it.
Nobody should be docked for anything.

You want to put a $500 crap coilover on your car thats fine.
But dont dock the guys who have seen said crap coilovers blow out on potholes the size of an m&m or no potholes at all.....then you would want to spend atleast $1k on suspension.
After all.....its a part of what keeps your car on the road.....literally.

i would have to say your wrong if you say they are extremely linear since most coilovers out on the market have linear springs. so maybe a better way to say teins might have horrible valving ???? since linear really means nothing beside the spring rate will never change due to height unlike a progressive spring.
