    I had the Jamex coilys for around the same price as the FK's and they were too harsh for me, even with my extra padding, but that could be my old age! Haha.

    I had the Raceland ones on mine Daz. Couldn't fault them at all for the price. Hard enough, but also comfy. But if you're wanting it slammed, then i don't know if they'll be the ones for you. These pics are from the last few months that i had mine, so i know it had the Racelands on then. The back is as low as it can go, without the adjusters in. It was just on the springs. The front did have a bit more to go lower though. Have a look and see what you think.

    The FK twin spring coil overs are pretty crap to be honest. They are made in the same factory as Jamex and TA Technics. Expect them to bang and boing on every low speed turn and crash over potholes like you have no suspension fitted. Personally I would go for a single spring version.
