    Raceland coilovers

    Hey guys and girls

    I bought a set of raceland coilovers for my mk4 GSi back in may 2009. Car went into garage to get new drive shaft today and the machanics noticed that the two front coilies were totally f****d, just wondering if anyone else has had any problems and if the warranty is ligit

    thanks

    youll need to be more precise as all cheap coilies corrode like hell so without using technical terms such as f**ked we cant really advise u any further im afraid

    racelands and all the other el cheapos should be avoided like the plague and you certainly aint the first and wont be the last to report problems regarding them falling apart!

    sure they werent just loose at the elongated bolt hole where the knuckle meets the strut? ie to adjust camber? maybe the mechanics arent familiar with coilovers and just assumed they were knackered......altho very possible with said brand!
