is it safe to say the spectrum is as follows:
Rokkors < Raceland < Koni(any setup) < FK(any series) < H&R(any setup) < Bilstien(any setup)
based solely on manufacturer quality/warranty/ride and options.
as far as set ups for your mk2 it comes down to you get what you pay for. if you love your mk2 you'll spoil her, if shes your bottom bizitch than get her a happy meal not a surf n' turf.
are they the same vehicle because honestly i think its very subjective if some one with a 2.0 16v gli says his racelands ride nicer than this guys aba swapped golf. for example. theres a lot of factors with in the comparison. if all else fails air is worth ever penny, IMO.
also, for most people they spoil their mk2s in other areas, some spoil them on wheels, some spoil them on suspension and brakes, some spoil them on motor/trans, some spoil them on interior, exterior, etc. lol
this argument just keeps going and going and going
Though still not really accurate as bilstien , koni, ground control, H&R & KW have full bred race gear that is upwards of $5000 per shock...
"hey it burns when i start to piss!"
"well my buddy has it and it burns when he stops pissing!"
"oh yeah well I read on the internets about people who have the burning throughout the whole piss!!!!!!!!"
Before people start saying this and that about these coilovers or the racelands, the people that should be posting about this product are the ones using it, not the ones that have not used them. I am tired of hearing about oh don't buy this cause it is cheap, poor quality which in fact, they have never owned or used these coilovers. Also some people with the economy and other stuff going on in their lives, can't afford more expensive coilover set up.
then they should buy a quality cup kit... next to tires i think suspension is one of the most important parts of your car safety wise... there fore not a really good spot to cheap out IMO...
I said in the start i have been in raceland cars and my own MKII had VMAXX in it when i got it and i drove on them for a summer... I dont see any difference in ride quality between them.. THEY BOTH SUCK ASS and handle LIKE ASS.. But as i also said above if all you want your car to do well is sit and look good then by all means buy them... I'll be the guy thats yelling at you to get out of my way on a bumpy road cause you think your car is going to shake apart from your ****ty suspension
These threads are so POINTLESS!!! Common response here is " dood just spend more and get ultra lows "
This is like " rat " threads everyone always has their own idea of whats better and what is and isnt but nobody takes into consideration what condition car those cheap coils are going on. There is no pont in buying $1000+ coils to use on a car thats worth half that.
you are right there is and i do have more tire now then i did last year but bouncy and harsh is bouncy and harsh... I was the one that cut the bumpstops in my set up as it wasnt done in the first place, it did ride MUCH better but still not as well as a cars with S.T's i have been in and americans get em for $800ish shipped. I figure if you have $300 now then save for another month and upgrade it would be worth it in the long run..
Also im 30 in 3 days I have bills to man and car parts come last so I feel the budget thing! hahaha
Rokkors and Racelands are both good products. They're not excellent, but they're good.
What happened to everyone knocking Vmaxx and supersport?..
My friends drive with Rokkor and Racelands and have no complaints. Some have had H&R, Koni, etc on previous cars.
I drove a car the otherday that had some coils that I'd never heard of before on it. The car drove nice and the suspension was very sporty and rode well.
I'm thinking about putting Rokkors on my B3...
Pick up some of your old PVW issues, look at some of the cars from europe back in 08. People were running Racelands...

I've had rokkor coils for about a year now. They are still holding up and they don't bounce much at all. For the money they r the **** and go low as hell. I'm about 1 1/2 in off the ground but still got tons of room left on the coils to go lower. I don't race the car I just drive it daily. For a cheap set of coils and u wanna go low. These are damn good
