It's a little lower than before. So maybe that's the problem. Should raise the front end a bit

Congrats on the coilovers doc, probably one of the best decisions you've made on the car so far! Can't wait to see what it's like...

About the lower member brace, isnt that an UR item? Hope you pointed that out to Abbas....

Well basically the lower member brace takes away the independence of the suspension, the idea is that when you corner it pulls the opposite side down. Makes a big difference for cars with stock suspension, but I'm guessing the gains would have been negligible with coil-overs anyway with the much stiffer spring rates...

here's the front lower member brace after its incident with the rock. i decided enough was enough. good lord i hope that didnt' do any permanent damage to my suspension! caster and toe in were unaffected. i think the camber is more because the car is low and not because of this.

Try them sometime. Drop me a text if you want contact details.

Not in the performance market any more :) Unless they can do something for jeeps. Which has been as Bruce Motorsports for like a month. But lets not thread hi-jack.

They are currently AC converting a 32- landy. So I guess they do jeeps. I also went there simply cos its closer!

finally managed to bite the bullet and get a good set of coilovers. after much ruminating and constipating over the deicision, went with GAB adjustable coilovers. they're the same spec as D2, with 36 way adjustable dampening and ride height as well. and local agency (a proper one, not a catfought badu-wali type agency like d2's) being around means parts are easy to ship in. also they're the cheapest option. d2's would have been at least 40,000 more.

and the ride... my god, the ride! what the hell was i doing with those coils and dampers? the car is finally coming alive! holy crap its so comfy! doens't bounce like a golden key cheque, and is just sex on wheels! sex!!

installed at project performance, behind no limit in mount lavinia. guys know what they're doing, and set the damper settings and ride height perfectly.

here's the all important little doohickey! 36 clicks this way and that. right now its set just south of midway.

aand the final ride height. took it for a spin. this was too low. the mud flaps were sweeping the road. so we raised it half an inch

met an interesting chap at the garage. he mistook the teg for zackie's car. after he had his moment, i quietly explained to him that this is mine. he then asks me, "so who's car is this?" to which i had to repeat "look, i'm suneth, and this is my car" how much simpler can i make it? just because someone with a racing pedigree didn't build it, doensn't mean it's not any good...

That happens Komi.

Just ignore them... there are certain traits in certain people which are not worth spending our time on...

Besides, you got the car, spend time with her, man...

I'd like to see them put their money where their mouth is...

Anodised connecting joints. Or something like that. Search for braided brake hoses on eBay you'll find them along with it.
