i geuss it depends on where you live and how the roads are there im only sitting on prokit springs now with the back springs cut a bit so still under 2 inch drop and some stuffs rough i swear i hit my bumper on the ground when i hit a big pothole earlier tonight . i would use them on a DD but i geuss thats personal prefrence i can handle going 10 mph down brick roads and swerving around potholes all day i think they would hold up fine to it it just may not be very comfortable over rough roads

mine handles fine and im on drop springs and stock shocks until i can afford the racelands i would assume the racelands would handle better but the ride is gonna be stiffer and bumpier as you would expect being so low

[i]Posted via FF Mobile[ Really want the racelands for my sedan. i sent phil an e-mail about a set and the response was 250 gbp-which works out to $412. is this right or should the ff discount be lower? not trying to be too cheap-just cuts into my omni kit money. let me know what they are going for. sincere thanks.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe full price would be 177gbp(price of coils)+90gbp(shipped to US)=428usd

okay coilovers are 177 pounds, shipping is 99 pounds, so 276 pounds before discount 276-10%=248.40 pounds which he rounded up to 250 for ease of conversion. so with out discount at the current conversion rate as of right now is 1.6011 dollars= 1 pound it would be $441.90 before discount and with the discount it should be $400.27. and this is constantly changing the GBP price of 250 does not change but the conversion ratio between GBP and USD changes consistently

90 is the discounted shipping price and 177 is the price of coilovers before the 10% off
