Kinda irrelevant because I just ordered some FKs, but I'm just curious
They're not to bad actually. Before the coilovers I had koni springs (for sale btw
) on stock struts. When I took them off, the struts were blown with almost no fluid left in them. So going from a blown set up with lowering springs to new coilovers and mounting bearings made them feel amazing. I never had stock suspension so I really cant compare the two. As for the spring rates being soft, the rear is actually pretty stiff (I cant compress the spring by just pushing on the trunk), unlike my lowering springs + stock struts. The front is where you can really feel the sofness of the springs. They are a little bouncy but Ive gotten use to it within a day. I drove with the rear and front completly down with stock 15in tires and never bottomed out. Overall for them being a under $300 coilover set up, im more then happy with them.
I was pinching money and when my dad asked me what I wanted for christmas, I just asked for racelands since they were cheap. I plan on upgrading to GC within the next two years or going with a bagover set up. Spring rates are defiantly the only con on these tho, but these are good for now.
