Raceland or sr performance coilovers

Does anyone have either of these 2 coilovers? The prices are pretty similar I was just wondering if the quality was there.

They are pretty much the same quality coilovers.

Are they decant quality for a daily driver who is looking for some low stance?

I was also interested in these but the price seems to good to be true, I don't know anyone who has purchased them and there aren't any reviews that I can see

They are good coilovers if you are purely looking for adjustable height and a bit better handling.

They aren't adjustable for stiffness or softness, so idk how long the shocks and struts will last.

If you want quality get the Max Motorsports ones. Anything cheaper and you are rolling the dice. I mean look at the UPR stuff that needs to be clearanced/modified to install properly.

I'm just looking for a decant set that will allow me to lower my car. I'm looking for a decant drop and want them to last for a couple years.

"Decent" and a suspension component should not really go together. You want as good as you can afford and if you can't afford a quality set I'd just get some good shocks and lowering springs and skip the coilovers. You honestly don't need coilovers if all you are going for is a drop. Mine is on BBK springs and Illuminas and looks good and rides good, no coilovers.

Get a set of KONI Yellows for your shocks and struts, then go to Maximum Motorsports and get their coilover conversion kits, it makes it exactly as any of those other high price/ brand name coilovers, and you also get to pick and choose the spring rates that come in them. Its what I'm doing.

I like Bilsteins honestly but Konis are good too. When I eventually do coilovers (after my IRS swap) I'll give MM a call and actually talk to them.

Or I'll just save up for an Agent47 SLA front end since the Cobra IRS is literally a factory SLA for the rear. That's like $5k vs $2k tho... little overkill for a street car I think.
