Re: 13.5F/13R & 19's - most comfortable suspension avail?

For true flat ride the front wheel rate should be softer than rear but by how much I don't know. This is because as the car hits a bump you want the rear to "settle" at the same time as the front....

Re: 13.5F/13R & 19's - most comfortable suspension avail?

Thanks for the kind words. I would also like to point out that Twentyseven, Bimmerman and Obioban have been extremely forthcoming AND candid, which only helps the community. These guys call it like...

Re: 13.5F/13R & 19's - most comfortable suspension avail?

Yes! And on the other side of that same coin, people need to be candid about how "comfortable" their racecar suspension in on the street.

The good news is that there is a (finally) shift...

Re: 13.5F/13R & 19's - most comfortable suspension avail?

I always run as much split as practical given the setup in question. This is for two reasons:

1. The ride quality is always better with a softer front setup - there is less energy transferred into...

Re: 13.5F/13R & 19's - most comfortable suspension avail?

100lbs is a massive difference in my experience - I've done that a couple times and vastly prefer the softer springs. The car still handles great but the suspension really breaths with the road...

Re: 13.5F/13R & 19's - most comfortable suspension avail?

Yes, brand new Konis are going to feel very firm relative to worn out stock shocks, big difference. Over time they'll loosen up a bit but I think mostly what you're feeling is having new vs old...

Re: 13.5F/13R & 19's - most comfortable suspension avail?

Yes, but you'll need stock diameter RSMs as the bigger 12mm units normally used on coilover rear shocks won't work with PSS10s. You need the same size that will fit stock rear stocks.



If you...

Re: 13.5F/13R & 19's - most comfortable suspension avail?

Edit: found the FCM video of the TCKs. He dynos an E36 M3 DA strut and also shows an AST DA strut, and, interestingly, a stock E46 M3 sachs strut (which I'm betting is mine as I regognize the graph...

Re: 13.5F/13R & 19's - most comfortable suspension avail?

Awesome thread. I must say that we've matured as a group over the years in that we can now discuss/compare Bilsteins, TCKs and Ohlins in a positive light.

Twentyseven and Obioban pretty much...
