dont have racelands but help install them on a mk3 jetta. good quality, horrible ride, but the price is amazing... kinda on the fence with these coilovers but there a steal. now im just waiting for my ksports to show up. also i didnt like how we had to re-use the top front strut mounts:/ but its all good...

You may want to also just get a new set of strut mounts while you're at it. Mine is a few years older than Akight's, but I wish I'd gotten the price before I slapped everything in; strut mounts are pretty cheap (my employee price is $17 each) and the peace-of-mind would be worth more than that to me.

EDIT: FINALLY got to align my car today... I'll post the before/after numbers once I find the print out we made... It handles so well!

2003 ZX3 with SVT guts, no camber adjustments unfortunately... Now I KNOW I need rear camber arms and front camber plates!

hope this isnt a dumb question, but if i buy these will i need to get camber plates and stuff also? or would i be fine with just putting them on and getting it all aligned.

BTW i would be running them on an 04 svtf 4 door.

depending on how low you go, youll likely have issues with toe in the rear, which is a bigger tire killer than camber. If you are on stock offset wheels and stock width tires, youll be fine with those.

I know people who are natural camber and whatever toe the stock adjustments allow for and their subframes are <2 inches off the ground.

Now, whether you should buy ricelands or a more quality unit is up to you. Don't expect the shocks/struts to last long if youre full low on them (they arent valved for the short travel youre subjecting them too)

thanks a lot bigred03. yeah im not sure if iw anna go with these yet or not. i wouldnt go super low its just regular suspension i hate how high the rear is. my friend has these on his vw gti and my other friend has h&r on his gti and the h&r is by far a better ride but the price tag is triple. im 17 on a small budget haha.

Just received my Racelands in, took only 3 days to get in from Germany to Canada, here they are unpacked. Will have to install them when weather gets a bit warmer, they will be going on my 2002 SVT
