Default Rally Setup...

Can anyone suggest a good coil over set to do a rally setup. Or is there a ready to go kit that doesn't cost more that my car.

dms, hotbits, rs&sp, proflex, and exe-tc to name a few...

these range from about 3k and up (way up). Probably more than what you're looking for. A set of feal revalves/inserts and matching springs is probably more what you're looking for. But it's hard to tell because you're lacking so much info in your post. Saying you want to build your car for 'rally' is an extremely vague statement.

stage rally or rallycross? Any DD? Stage rally dms & rs&sp as mentioned in post 2. And teams get those rebuilt on a regular basis.

I DD and RX mine and use tokico spec d struts.

Thanks guys... I am looking more for stage driving. I live on dirt so I am looking for a set up so I could have a little bit of fun going to and from my house.

yeah....raise the car a couple inches to start.....the gr rear suspension has VERY limited travel as in almost none

the gr body will require different things than the gd

this will NOT be cheap to do right......as in sell the 08 and get a gd body car

Correct.

Step 1 - Cut out rear shock locations- weld in 3" higher mounting plates.
Step 2 - Buy appropriate suspension.
Step 3 - Rebuild frequently. The frequency is directly related to speed and abuse you deal to the car. Are you prepared to replace most components under your car every year or sooner? Talk to Odi and see what he has to say. If you are serious, but something else to run besides your GR.
