for those curious, I just installed a set of these too and fickin love them, love the ride, all around. I was really most interested in the fact that they arent TOO stiff, I have a really really bad back and riding in anything too harsh just isnt something I can do, so the price was right and I cant say enough about how perfect the ride is for me. I made the false assumption that i could use stock endlinks since i would only be dropping car by an inch tops and that was dead wrong, if you are ordering these you will absolutely HAVE TO REPLACE ENDLINKS. gl to all.

Hey Kevro,

Where in SD are you at?
It'd be cool if you'd allow me a peak at those RLs.

I so want that setup now.

Alright guys, I just ordered a set of Racelands today. I'll be removing an h&r sport cup kit from my 2005 325ci to try these coilovers. Can't wait!

I am thinking of getting these. My rear shocks are blown and my E46 is just a daily beater, nothing special. Those who have these, has anyone had any more issues, besides the ones in the beginning of the thread.

So...how are you going to ensure that these modified endlinks won't rust/corrode?

I'm guessing paint?
