How's the NorCal Racing Club?
Not sure, haven't seen them in almost 2 years
Thanks for the support!
What a great smiley!
I'm finally pleased with my ride height. Need to toe the front and add a half degree of camber to right pass rear.
I took this picture with my Gold, sorry for the qualsz.
Requesting write up on all details of making coils work on our cars please.
It's really easy and simple.
1. You need a rear spacer of at least 10mm (from memory, lol) to fit a fat 205 section tire on a 7" wheel at +45mm offset. I used a 15mm spacer and it's as flush as I want to go right now.
2. Use only a few mm or zero preload on the springs.
3. Use adjustable endlinks (I still need to do this).
4. It's hard as hell to get the rear coils on to the spindle; use a jack underneath for leverage and connect the swaybar afterwards (obviously).
Obviously you will need an alignment, but a corner balance is also highly recommended to optimize the handling capability of your coils. Beware though, it might make it look weird.
I also think the sweet spot for the rear in terms of form and function for me (if rolled properly) is +30mm on a 7" wheel.
That's it? Then why was cBass complaining about some weird clunking shit above the springs or whatever.
His were modified, I cannot comment on them. There is some coil binding with these, but it is not terrible and only happens at extreme steering angles for me. Pillowball mounts are also always going to be louder than standard rubber top mounts also.
Hmm wonder what was changed on his
Rx7 changed the stock springs to stiffer and much shorter Eibachs.
