As some of you might know I am probably the only non-ford owner here:oo1: I've got a 92 Galant GSR with the electronic controlled suspension. Well one of the sensors have gone and Mitsu want around $600 to replace it, I said feck that, I'd rather replace the suspension with a conventional setup, although sporty ride.
Anybody have any advice or suggestions as to who have suspension packages etc??? and cost.
Originally posted by adviliax few places you might wanna try.
as alwasy, pedders is a safe bet, especially on a budget like yours.
otherwise, you can try whiteline in minto or MRT in ryde. both are pretty good with small jap cars, but the thing is, MRT uses whiteline components.
i've got a better suggestion though! just sell the mitsu and get a ford! :D
Replacing the Galant with a FORD is on the list don't worry, but until then I need to save my kidneys. The thing is sitting literally on the bump stops I reckon, it scrapes everywhere, and is just way too harsh now. Its been getting worse I think the longer I've left the air struts disabled.

Yeah basically. The system uses an air compressor to pump up the airbags around the struts, it lets me adjust height and firmness of the suspension. But I have disabled it, and now its just relying on the springs tension which I think are not sufficient for the weight of the car while the ECS is turned off.
i had a system like that on my old telstar where you could go for a sport mode, normal or... adjustable, or whatever! but the front shocks were new, and the rears were d/c so it didn't work unfortunatelly. i remember the specific ford shocks cost something like $400 a piece!! laughable if you ask me! hehe
