Depends on budget mate. By all accounts, those racelands cheap coilies have proved to be good. Not special but they lower the car and dampening seems to even work as well apparentley! Very Happy

If you are talking 500 quid mate get some BC coilovers.

Mine's only on Eibach springs bud. I'm going for some BC's.

I would say you should go for them if you need some lowness quick. If you want some really decent performance then spend higher.

nice work bud, yeah if u want budget get the racelands, they're fairly good, only thing is to get it as low as mine u have to take the helper springs out and there isnt much travel in the suspension - i'm gonna be raising it up a tiny bit because i dont want to destroy the bump stops lol, but tbf they do the trick for the price!

i'm good enough but if u can afford it get better ones mate i only got these because of the price if i'd had more money i'd have gone for some gaz's or something, you can pick up some pretty good ones for about 400 or look on the forums for some 2nd hand ones Smile

And yeah i still have the originals they are GAB and still have billie springs lol

well i cant really afford more than the racelands.

ive jus been looking at lowering springs coz i dont want it mega low i jus want the wheels to fit nicely in the arches and for it to handle a bit better.
ive found a set of FK 35mm springs for £60 delivered.

mines lowerd like 20mm ish.. and mine could do (if i wanted to .. but i dont) just a little bit lower... so 35mm would look cool imo.

the only problem is u still end up with a bit of rake (the back is noticeably higher than the front) thats what put me off and i already technically had lowering springs and shocks
