Well finally getting the suspension done.

Heya All,

Dropped my car off last night, to get the suspension and front end worked on.

Went with the lowered king springs and tickford shocks.

Will tell all when i get her back tonight ...


Cheers

Will

This is for the ED isn't it bigred?

I am very interested in how you go as the missus ED will soon become my everyday car (otherwise known as project car) and the suspension is one area that needs an overhaul.

BigRed,

Make sure you take some piccies after the suspension work. I think you'll find the King Springs do quite abit in the handling department as there 30% uprated compared to the stockies.

Hey guys.

Well, only got the front end completed so far... my mech spent most of sunday straightening it all out. you should seen the passenger side shock... very very bent.

anyways. will get the rear shocks and springs in this saturday. so far though the improvement has been substantial. Also put in fresh Bridgstone G-Grids (215/60/15) and got it aligned and balanced. cant wait to get the rear done. Might get a 3:45 lsd slipped in too.. hehe

"its just so tight."

:)

Cheers

Will
