    Coilovers definately! For the price, raceland coilovers are great. They look good and the ride quality is good. Coilovers FTW

    I will say nothing about the Racelands beyond that I didn't buy them and was much happier spending a little more overall on some Jamex springs and matching shocks.

    Down to budget really. Better off with Coilovers I dont see anything wrong with springs though.

    My raceland coilies were 150 and really hard! Great handling but with my roads its a bit of a joke... If you have good roads near you i couldnt recommend them more for value!

    Currently waiting on a Jamex Shock/Spring combo after nry's recommendation.. This was also only £158, so i'll let you know the verdict on those when i fit them! (Hopefully tomo...)

    If you can strectch to coilies, do it. But I'd say by a proper decent set of springs instead of a cheapo set of coilovers.
    Go hard or go home!!!

    Coilies, if you did go for springs I'll recommend Eidbachs or Votglands.
    Kind Regards,

    If you got the springs and shocks for that then you're laughing! I paid that just for the shocks!

    The roads I drive on can be very bumpy but the Jamex shocks make them superb for 'spirited' driving
