    tbh i wouldn't recommend the raceland ones.

    for me they are to soft and i keep hitting the bump stops, and the tail goes light under heavy braking, (fun but not how i want it to be). i think the extra weight of the turbo coupe compared to a hatch is making the difference.

    I'm going for some fully adjustable ones next with damp and rebound adjustment.

    i agree mate cant have much stuff in the boot due to the rear dhock being so soft
