    think they are the raceland ones afew on here have them and rate them quite highly, but at the end of the day you get what you pay for.

    i have adjustable GAZ GHA coilovers on my van

    paid 460 i think, very good kit. dampening and ride height adjustable

    i wouldn't go for the raceland ones, as EVO said, you get what you pay for

    got mine from www.larkspeed.com

    with coilovers you get what you pay for and yes the raceland ones are probably ok but after a couple of months the adjusters will be siezed as im guessing they aint stainless steel.

    Im running KW veriant 3's and i must say the are bloody good, top end of the price range but worth it i say.

    each to there own tho
