is there any way to stiffen and/or lower the suspension without draining my bank account? Are suspensions on c70's adjustable? just wondering, wanna do as many cost free things as possible before I go fork out the green.

Re: suspension (biggerhurt38)

The only thing that you can do is cutting your springs but that might e dangerous. Probably anything to do with the suspension has got to do with money. The cheapest bet is going with lowering springs and then upgraded shocks. If you really have the greens, then you can get coilovers. Those are adjustable. Whatever you do, it requires money. I just got IPD springs and Bilstein HD shocks and have nothing but good things to say about the setup. Granted, it's a little rough on the 405 but the car now corners like it's on rails.

Re: suspension (biggerhurt38)

If you want, I will have mine for sales pretty soon. The H&R springs and Bilstein shocks and struts. I'm joining Carlos' KW coilover group buy.

Not sure yet, really depends how many people will be on the group buy. And I have pretty good faith this group buy will not go down like that silly BSR one. I know Phill and few others got burnt (in a way) from that last time...

What I heard was around $1800 retail...and don't know how much the group buy can bring it down to. Even $1300 is very reasonable.

What do you think you will be asking for them, I may be interested when the time comes.

Re: suspension (biggerhurt38)

I guess half price of the original cost I got from IPD should be reasonable, right?<p>Shocks and struts has life time warranty from Bilstein, the H&R springs..I'll have to check.

Re: suspension (dcbeltran)

Yup $650 for all the shocks and struts and the springs.<p>You get to choose to either get this Bilstein+H&R setup, or Koni+H&R, or Bilstein+PI, or Koni+PI.<p>But this won't be ready for sale till I get my coilover kit which will be around the 2nd week of Nov. Let me know if you are still interested.

Hey buddy, so are you guys getting coilovers for the 850 too? Or you are just gonna sell one set of springs and shocks, then the other set left over will be put back onto the 850?
