raceland coilovers vs eibech

i have eibech sport springs with stock shocks , body roll is bad, the rear dont hold too well on hard corners. all i can say is no confidence to take corner hard.
i consider about raceland since it drop nice and its CHEAP!
all i want to know is will raceland be better then what i have now.
i know raceland is nothing performance extreme sh*t, but as long as it do ok, i am fine.
i use to have H&R race with sport shocks, and it handles great!

Theres a lot of bs opinions about racelands out there. But from the ppl that actually own the kit, the rears are really soft / bouncy. So the ride is not that great. The install is also a pain, you have to source new endlinks (approx $100). You need to factor that into the total cost of the kit. But if you want to do it cheap, just replace your shocks if you already have good eibach springs. I would not put RL on a car that i enjoyed driving hard. If you are just looking for a cheap low drop for looks, they may serve that purpose. I am not sure the raceland are going to handle any better than the setup that you have now. Search the forum and read up on them, then decide for yourself. I have never owned a set.
