Your Suspension Setup

Hey everyone im just wondering what sort of suspension setup you have on your car and how much it approx cost. Im looking at doing mine soon if it dosent cost too much and i can afford a good setup. Not too keep on it being low but do want alot less roll and bounce but still a comfy ride. Note my shocks and springs are screwed lol.

Re: Your Suspension Setup

I've done a few AU sedans now for friends and family. In every case I fitted Kings Springs and Monroe GT Gas or Sensatrac shocks and everyone has been very pleased with the results. Depending on the car I have also fitted nolathane bushes on the front sway bar.

On earlier models chances are you'll also get a good improvement doing your radius rod and lower arm bushes.

Re: Your Suspension Setup

i think im gonna go with lovell (spelling) i was told king is shit and with these i get a 5 year warrenty and cost $970 fitted for everything. He also says that a company in gladstone who get asked for king sprigs he send them to this place because they would rather give the customers lovells.

Re: Your Suspension Setup

EF series 2. Didnt completly believe what the guy told me sounded like a bit of an ass but 5 year warrenty sounds tempting.One place told me i can get xr6 style suspesion for 600 and seeing as i may not have the car for long this might be my solution??

Re: Your Suspension Setup

I have always found Konis to provide the best ride / handling compromise.

Re: Your Suspension Setup

Kings are definately not Crap.
Lovels are not bad but what shocks are you putting with them?

Re: Your Suspension Setup

dont know but 970 compared to 600 is too much and i just thought well im not gonna be racing around corners so its not worth it (ok except some drifting). Just want a stiffer ride with less roll so maybe the xr6 stuff will do. Oh and the place with this xr6 stuff said konis for round 1000

Re: Your Suspension Setup

King springs are good they do springs for the V8 super tourers
The lovell springs have a good rep but I think king springs are as good
The lovell warrenty is good don't know what king springs are
