Anyway..my car is lowered now. I'm not completely satisfied with the springs though. They are supposed to be progressive, but the 4 closely wound lower coils dont do anything at all..they bind when the weight of the car rests on them. What's the use in having 4 coils doing nothing?[quote]

They're supposed to be bound like that - the rate of the close-together coils is very low.

The spring manufacturer does this so that you get a lower initial height, but with a similar spring length to stock. If you go too short on spring length, the spring will not be under tension in the strut (front)/perches & body (rear).

That is why you need a really short stroke shock in the rear if you are running a short straight-rate spring; to keep the spring in place.

Skid marks ................. its my practice place :-) We where lucky on struts that my friend was able to undo caus they where really hard.

Rear end of a Hachi is really really easy.

front stinks if its so hard to get loose.

We did the yellow hachi which now belongs to a friend of mine and we still didn't do mine (need stainless steel brake lines :-)

anyways my suspension is next have to get koni for the rear

Now if only they didnt rub the fender. I took out the fender linings tonight and I bent in the protruding parts of the lip (where the screws of the lining go).
That helped out a lot, but it still rubs slightly. Thus, time has come to start thinking about better solutions. Robokill, bring on the mystery springs !!!!(duh-duh-duuuuuuhhhnnnn). Proper rolling of the fenders is also an idea. I'll try to persuade someone to let me add a few notches to their baseball bat :wink:

Having said that, I have to say they look dead sexy!
Got Lip?
