Shortly after that they were sold out, though. I can tell just from feeling mine, that a more premium kit would feel better!

Great for the price though!
I dont get on here much anymore, but i remember us both talking about racelands back before i purchased some. I do stance, not performance with my car and I can say i am very happy with how they do. I have noticed that there were multiple kits that were made for our cars and the one i received works great! They are extremely stiff though, however that was perfect since yet again i do stance.

I have ran these coilovers on the car now for about 40,000 miles on crappy tacoma washington roads all the way to seattle everyday. They do great, however they do not ride as smooth as H&R's. I loved my H&R's but i would never use them to stance on.

So to as another review from someone who has had multiple brands of coilovers, I would say the Racelands are superb for their price. I would buy another set if mine blew, which they havent even after 40K rough miles of being stanced.

Feel free to PM me for questions and thoughts since I most likely wont be back on here for quite some time.
