Re: New Member FK coil-over dampers
The coil-overs have transformed the handling and ride. The ride is now much firmer, you do hear creaks from the car when you go over bumpy surfaces. Would say the ride is firm rather than hard.
Handling, turn-in is instant, but not to the point of oversteer, the roll has all but disapeared. I corner weighted the car a week after fitting the coil overs, using a Pace tool, this took a couple of hours but was well worth the effort and cost of the tool. The car gives you confidence the original set-up never did. The best money I have spent to date.
Lowering has only been taken to -30mm all round.
If you going to undertake the task yourself invest in new, roll bar links for the front and rear, new bolts and nuts, I had to remove most mine with and angle grinder as the were seized solid. The work around 14 hours to complete (plus time to corner weight).
