I lot of speed owners own them (on speed forum) which.. I find odd.

Also a lot of VAG guys (and gals) use them to to drop the crap out of their v dubs.

Besides a creepy story of the main top bolt snapping, I haven't really heard anything "bad" about them or anything.
Just know they are simple coilovers and you can't adjust anything.

I say if you do get them and run them... someone needs to do a proper review of them. Just because they are cheap doesn't mean they are junk, they have value as.. literally thousands upon thousands of people have them. Just not sure how they are on a 3. The speed guys are two snuffed up on whatever to actually say what they like or hate about them.

At least for Miatas, they are total junk. Now, all Racelands are poor quality, that's a given. But, for Miatas, they are far underdamped as well.

oh thats all i meant, what other adjustment are there? i dont know much about suspension. only other thing i can think of is ride stiffness? that would be nice.

i dont race track or anything, just trying to improve the look and handling a bit. so if i did just get these how long do you think it could last? because i can always go back to stock right?

my other option would be knew shocks and springs, and i want to do at most a 1.8" drop all around, so i would need a camber adjustment kit for the rear right? even if i did run these coilovers at over a 1.5" drop?

sorry for all the questions just trying to straighten things out
