    You might be interested in this as well. Also, there is a huge thread on Raceland coils, try searching, a lot of pictures with them fitted.

    the lmf ones look identical to raceland,janspeed ones, they all made in same factory, then coloured and rebranded. wonder if lmf made same place.

    aoc did a group buy on raceland and tbh they gd for the money, but be aware you will need to use ya OE bearings on most of these cheapo kits, a few ppl had issues with knocking noises, mainly due to incorrect fitting and not using OE bearings. my racelands were fine and worth every penny of the £130 odd i paid. theres a guy on egay that did the group buy

    put a lower price in and generally u will get them

    I have raceland on my car and i'm not pleased. On the right front side it's quite soft....when i hit a speed bump or something simillar,it makes a nasty knocking sound. At the back, both dampers are wasted.....only made max 1000 km and also the car is tilted on the left side with the adjustments set exactly the same on both sides. i have 3 friends with the exact raceland kit and they don't have problems on the front.....but the rear dampers are very soft....softer than stock dampers. Also had Ta-tehnix kit, that is the same kit as raceland only the color is diffrent......... those were really fu***d. Going for Gaz kit....bit more expenssive but u can set the ride hight and stiffnes too. Both raceland and ta-tehnix wer bought from Germany. Hope u have better stuff there. Cheers
