How soon are you selling car?
What is your goal? (If worn struts, good option is KYB GR-2/Excell)
You buying one set or two? If keeping the car a while, buy two sets, so you have extras WHEN you need to send a blown in for warranty.
BTW, you need an alignment for every swap if you value your tires.

I believe I have posted many times as has dmdicks and others....2 things......

Speed is money, how fast do you want to go?

Cheap, fast, reliable, pick 2.

For the second, I have thought I knew better. I have spent over 40 years trying to disprove this, failed thus far.
I now preach this.

No, not an engineer.
No, not ASE certified.
Yes, wrenching for over 40 years.
Yes, made my mistakes as well as fixing others.

You want free answers, you get opinions for the most part.

No, no and no.

I had them and regretted it.

They should come with a tube of anal-ese. See for yourself if you buy them. Be prepared. It hurts where it shouldn't.

Man, you’re all over the place. It sounds like you want to change everything on your car and do it for all for fifty bucks. You’re not listening to everyone that has given you advice on all the threads that you have started. If you go with all the cheapest parts you can find, you’re going to wind up spending much more trying to fix everything that you ruin. Dmdicks has replied to most of your threads explaining that you have to pay to play. Modifying cars properly is extremely expensive. You should decide where you want to start and do hours of research on how to go about it and then save twice as much money as the parts will cost before you go through with anything. There are several threads on this forum about racelands, all bad. There are many other threads about good coilovers as well. Use the search bar and take your time.

Re: Raceland Coilovers

I am going back up everything said above as far as the general quality of Racelands.

That said, you are clearly on a budget which is no bad thing, but let us know what specifically you don’t like about the car and what you would like to change. What’s the goal here? Odds are, there are better ways to achieve your goals available. You just need to know what questions to ask.

Simply put: are you going for
-looks?
-speed?
-comfort?
-reliability?
-other?

Re: Raceland Coilovers

Haha I Understand!

Im going to let this be clear just so everyone knows

The reason I am "all over the place" is cause im simply just a new guy in the car world. However with that said Im also a broke a$$ teenager so spending so much on a car is a little unreasonable especially going into college. i do work and all, but I definitely dont receive handouts.

So, yes im all over the place from super/turbo to coilovers etc. Yes I dont really know what im talking about I am aware.

Just asking questions and looking for answers.

Fine, most of us have been there as well at some point (me, many decades ago, others, maybe a year or so ago).


Cover maintenance, do tires if old or worn, get it RELIABLE, drive it, plan on upgrades.

Things like big power increase is not only expensive up front, but reduces reliability. So you get hit twice.

I like your honesty, but I gotta +1 on what Charlie said. Make sure you cover the basics before you start modding. You could dump a bunch of time and money into race suspension and a forced induction system and blow up your engine because you didn't do your timing belt.

Re: Raceland Coilovers

If you just want to lower your car on the cheap then racelands are ok. I mean its also somewhat of a luck of the draw, you might get lucky and they might last a while but they almost certainly wont. I have no experience with them on a Tib but a buddy of mine had them on his MK4 Jetta for about 10k miles and didn't have any issues. That being said he sold the car after 10k miles so who knows how long after that they lasted. Also I cant stress enough that when you lower it your gonna need an alignment, especially on the front. I lowered my car and it had enough tow in to use up a set of budget 600 tread wear tires in about 2500 miles, they should have lasted at least 45k.

IMO it really comes down to how much you care about the car. If one of your coils fails and puts your car out of commission until you can get it fixed is that the end of the world for you or not? Also if/when they fail they might mess up your car pretty bad, if you cant handle that then don't buy them and go with something more expensive that will last.

I have raceland coil overs in my tib, tbh they are a budget suspension. The ride is a little rough but they have held up pretty well so far. I’ve had them for about 4 months so far and not to bad. If you have the money I would recommend getting something a little better. If your on a budget then go for it. Raceland claims they have lifetime warranty on their coilovers so we will see what they do if mine break.

I personally know several peeps with Racelands.
Most have had at least one fail.
Yes, they were warranteed.
Issue is, you need to remove the failed unit (car is down), ship back, get agreement, get replacement, install, realign. Time car down, could be close to a month plus the alignment cost.
Can you deal with that?
I have sometimes suggested getting 2 sets. This allows a swap and alignment while going through warranty, thus, limited downtime.
Then again, 2 sets starts getting in the range of something decent.

If your current suspension is shot and you are selling soon, the next buyer may think Racelands are worth extra money. I don't.

A decent replacement strut is the KYB GR-2/Excel with either stock or mild drop springs. A bit better than new OEM for a reasonable price.
