Sure, didn't notice the OP had a TS.
I always assume V6
Yep, I've too many of the bloody things. 3x156 v6's and 2x gtv ts, two of the 156s are donors and same with the gtv. They're just so damn cheap, i can't resist. Until i ran out of room, or should i say my friend told me I've ran out of available room at his place
While id love a 3.0 gtv, at 22, it just aint feasible at the moment but maybe when I'm qualified i might take a trip across the water for a cup.
So for a twin spark, what set up is best recommended?
The suspension as it is, is decent. No knocks or rattles anyway.
Im definitely polybushing the rear.
With respect to wishbones, Id definitely be going TRW. Heard to many stories about non OEM and they're not to expensive. However as my front is solid, I won't be going near it, until it needs doing.
So whats recommended with regards to shocks.
As its only a twin spark, torque steer isn't as much of a problem compared to the v6.
I fitted koni str.t shocks to my 156 and found it helped it a lot, no need to brake as much going into bends.
While i don't intend on doing track days in it, id still like it to be able to handle better.
With the rear getting polybushed, would fitting koni sport shocks to the rear make it to hard, or should I fit the sports just to the front and fitting new TRW shocks to the rear? Or monroe shocks?
Or as PJ3074 said, standard shocks and suplex/kyb springs?
Id go as far to say, the roads in Ireland are worse
She'll be staying on 16s for the time being, as siennas are out of budget at the moment (save for finding a cheap set on ebay) if that makes any difference.
I take it brake upgrades should also be considered.....my 156 currently has ebc greenstuff pads and ebc turbo grooved disks, I had planned to fit braided brake lines, but then got the gtv.
I was thinking for the gtv of fitting braided lines first with DS2500s at the front?
Cheers all for your advice, very much appreciated.
