_rauull22 I got mine 2 days ago and have them installed already ride height was down to 1 finger gap all around.. I wanted at least tire tucking bit guess not.. The ride is amazing though no bouncing at all! My friend has some 1000 dollar suspension on his Toyota FRS and his bounces lol but I'd say they are a really nice ride. Anyways I want to know if there's any modifcations I can do to them so I can go lower of anyone can help me out be great!

Mile30 I installed everything that showed up in the box; no problems yet... save for the autocross woes.

Again on that tip: see my comments above. That said, mine continue to hold up. If any of you lot plan on making the pilgrimage to Ford Nationals I'll be more than happy to talk to you about this until you don't wanna talk to me anymore! I did a how-to on FJ when I got mine, and I installed it in a friend's garage while I was putting myself through Lincoln Tech... I had a pretty decent idea what I was doing and triple-checked EVERYTHING against Armanduh's thread... the pics I took were to supplement the sections I sorta guessed on.

I'm not one of the people that tried three different coilover setups, though. So I can't speak from experience on the differences. I have a hunch the high-end sets feel stock until pushed, whereas these feel tighter than that.

1988ttop I bought a set of the “new” Raceland coil overs on 11/22/13. So far I feel that for the price the system is not bad. Ride quality is ok and not bouncy as I thought it would be initially. Something I didn’t like was the lack of instructions with the package, I have done suspension work before so I knew what I was doing as far as the basics but the biggest question I had was the orientation of the springs and adjusting piece in the back… Should I have placed the adjustment sleeve on top of the spring, or at the bottom? Any ways I installed them under the spring (how I saw it in a tutorial posted here). I have heard people complaining about the shocks going bad fairly quick but in most cases they have alter the setup somehow, some of them remove the helper spring, cut the springs or have done something else. I have not done any of that and so far I am very happy with them. I wish I could lower the rear a lil more without modifying the system but oh well it was pretty cheap to begin with.

Slw-Fo Ok so I read this entire thread and searched FF and the "other forum" as its called, and have yet to have my original question answered. Are there any pics/reviews of the "NEW" race lands that apparently just started selling again last month? Or are they exactly the same as the ones originally sourced by Armanda?
