Rokkor/Raceland Supplier?

Dont flame, i dont have enough money to buy a 1000+ coilover kit. Eventually ill upgrade but not now

I really dont want to pay the shipping or at least save some money on it. So does anyone know i can order Rokkor Coilovers for an E36 from? Rokkor not Raceland even tho i know theyre the same company.

Can we laugh instead of flaming? Why not just save money until you CAN afford something decent.

And just so the post is not totally useless, no I don't know where to get some. They all come on the boat from China, so west coast maybe.

I'm not sure who distributes them in Canada, but there was a used pair for sale on Kijjiji about a month back for $150. If you're ok wit a used set, I would suggest checking your local ads often.

+1... Do it right the first time. Why go through the hassle of buying and selling twice, not to mention installation and alignment?

I think he said he didnt want to pay shipping/handling costs so that rules out Ebay/rokkor website.

He will pay for it either way... Someone does and it always gets passed on to the buyer.

That said I know a few people that were rocking Racelands on their VW, they didn't mind them for the price ($400 new).

Obviously there are far better choices out there but if you're not tracking the car and you just want to lower it for looks I don't see any harm in that.

I have all the parts, just need to find time to install it. Planning to have the turbo kit, suspension and wheels on by the end of Aug.
