Re: Parts to correct the loss of droop travel when using Ohlins R&Ts with camber plat

Ian, curious why you go with these Ohlins over other proven options that don't have as many hurdles to make work properly. Are they exceptionally good despite the limitations and other factors?

Re: Spacers

Interesting method with that dangle technique. You'd really want the tire to be flush with the inside of the fender so during suspension travel it moves inside the wheel well. For reference one inch...

Re: Spacers

You don't need studs, you do however need either studs or wheel bolts. Studs are just one way that is popular because it makes tire changes easier. But anything more than 5mm you need longer wheel...

Re: Sparco Evo w/ Brey-Krause Mounts, Euro Center Console, & Rear Seat Delete Install

Looks great. Did the mounts and the seat width force you to change seating positions at all? Like are you off center from the wheel any more than with stock seats?

Re: Alignment Question, not enough camber

If they said anything about tie rod ends they're clueless anyways. That's not how camber is adjusted on our cars.

Re: Fake ACS Strut Bar

To me, its immediately a no-go not having the ability to adjust a top-mounted shock adjustment (which is what I have). In my opinion either the rogue bar or the OEM bar are the two best on the market.

Re: ISC N1 Coilover Caster Setting - Problem?

I feel like rarely mentioned in the coilover discussion is the fortune auto option. I've had really good results with my kit both ride on the street and a good balance on the track.

Re: Alignment Question, not enough camber

I'm a bit surprised that is the max they could pull out. Have you looked at the top of the strut in the engine bay? It should be pretty apparent if the camber is maxed out, the 3 bolts that hold the...

Re: ISC N1 Coilover Caster Setting - Problem?

Caster effects camber gain as well. So the less static caster you have (closer to zero) the less your dynamic camber will change from its static. The front of these cars have pretty bad camber...

Its probably complete luck if the subframe isn't just about ready to detach from the carrier panel. Definitely worth checking that out. What is the project?
