Re: Helloo from Serbia! (My 24v conversion)

Thank you! Lower arm is on my wish list too, but before that season of driving and learning new setup is top priority. :)

Re: Helloo from Serbia! (My 24v conversion)

I've been playing around with suspensions and first tests are really promising! Duk & Kevin, I wish to thank you again for more than useful tips! Custom made upper arm with sliders for camber setup and longer upper ball joint for roll center correction. http://www.dodaj.rs/t/3S/d8/25Xg7pr7/dsc06765....

Re: Helloo from Serbia! (My 24v conversion)

Front wheels were 8.5'. Unfortunately, on this picture I was missing rear plastic covers (with them, it was much better).

Re: Front suspensions almost like real racecars...

It can be done with 50mm body and 2,25 ID springs too, they just need fabrication of sleeves..

Re: Front suspensions almost like real racecars...

And You end up with extremely short travel and really high bind position?
I would skip this kind of suspension mod.

Re: Spring Rate to Damper Ratios???

Note that these Bilsteins aren't from 75, so factory damping probably do not match to them.

Re: Trouble replacing A Frame Bush

Mount it on a drill, take sandpaper and make it for just a bit smaller. Then make a conical profile on one side (that side will penetrate) :lol:
Use few bigger washers and screw to pull bushing in.

Don't heat/freeze anything, just apply a bit of oil.

Re: Few questions for spring rate (without torsion bars)

Maybe a dumb question... Is it safe to make thread on regular B46 Bilsteins and convert them into coilovers?

Edit: Definitely no, there's no enough thick wall for thread. :)

Re: Few questions for spring rate (without torsion bars)

Please do send! :D I suppose that helper spring is 4' long and ID of springs 2,25'? I've already opened upper control arm and tried some weaker springs (60kg/cm) with torsion bars, but it doesn't feels good enough.. What about reinforcement of chassis? Thank you very much! my mail: Lakijanovic@gmail...
