Ah, now I understand why you're upset.
You're the guy who ruined his ZHP's ride with rokkors.. after the whole forum advised him not to.

There's no need to get your jimmies in a rustle because you own the product.
You're biased as fvck.

As long as you're happy.

I only spend my own time warning people, to keep them from going through the same mistakes I made in the past.

Well i know some of you dont want to hear it but here are my thoughts. Got my raceland ultimos on today. Only took about 40 minutes. I set them as low as they would go. First of night and day difference from stock struts and ebay coils. I can take corners at alot higher speeds now with no body roll. It does bounce but i like it that way. My front camber is -2.5* on each side and my rear is at about -2.0 so for a daily driver you cannot beat these coilovers for the price. Also im riding on stock 16" wheels for now so no scrubing what so ever

Yeah its just bad when you dont have a lift like me. It took me a whole day, but then again i had never installed coilovers before and i did it all by myself in the garage.

Thats always a plus. I would have had help but my best friend is useless when it comes to mechanics, all he does is watch and ask questions.

the wheels are plastidipped white but dirty as hell right now and i agree i need new ones. but im trying to focus on getting the rest of the body work done so we can paint it.


and yes its so low i park in the street. no driveways for me

and also im running 195/50/16s up front and 205/50/16s in the rear so it sits even lower
