I JUST PUT MINE IN TODAY !!!!... to be honest u guys, i have a E46 with sports package, if u have a sports package, the RIDE QUALITY on the ROKKOR is EXACTLY the same.. just TINY WINY bit stiffer, but so far I LOVE THE RIDE QUALITY, when i bought them, that was my biggest issue, but after feeling the ride quality, its GREAT, VERY VERY VERY CLOSE TO STOCK, but i ran into sooo many problems, thats y i named my car PROBLEM CHILD haha, sway bar links needed to be changed cuz the stock ones where to long, for u guys who run into that problem, u can use E36 M3 end links, and also i lowered my car on STOCK 17's and my wheels hit the coilovers so i needed to higher the front end cuz spacers were out of the picture @ the time all stores where closed. So i need to pick up 13MM-15MM spacers, but other then that. u guys should be GOOD. im about 5 inches off the ground, after the spacers im ganna drop 2 more inches, looked great b4 i had to raise it for the clearance.

just rmr b4 u guys take them to a shop for installation, get E36 M3 sway bar links, also 13-15MM spacers, and for some reason if u guys wont need them, u can return them. good luck,

Just incase no one here knows, rokkor tuning is the same as raceland coilovers. Pays to the same company, and the rokkor tunning is just the same, but with a stiffer springrate.

what came in with your rokkor coilover set? Because it seems like i am missing something. it looks like i will need shorter end links. but It looks like I need the rear top mounts, and the front mounts. is that right? What came with your purchase?

^^ that is correct, covered several times about the sway bar endlinks. either between a chevy impala or a Kia part from an auto parts store. you have to search around for the exact part number you need.

top mounts for front & rear, correct, you must use your OEM ones.

Thanks. Yea i figure i need the endlinks. but the mounts i didnt know. I guess it wasn't really a complete coilover set. well thats what i get for being cheap. I guess once i get all the parts I need I can start installing.
