    Don't bother with coilovers then.

    You could pick up a set of GAZ coilies for about £500, Fk' and H&Rs are around £750+
    I've got raceland ones £150 and they are spot on. But certainly aren't a decent ride

    I have janspeed coilovers, for a start get the raceland ones if your gonna get cheap ones, but i wouldnt recommend them if you want a good ride, im running them with 40 profile and i can feeel every thing i hit! Raceland ones have a 2 year warrenty so i wouldnt waste your money on the Gaz but its all personal opinions, handles lovely though!
