Default The new and improved advanced suspension and brakes thread

Some of the Guru's over in the regular suspension and brakes forum felt that we needed an advanced section,.so here it is........( I am not a Guru...so I dont count)

starring:

Uncle Scotty, Doc Bigggly, Nhluhr, Arnie, Bridrive, BigskyWRX,and a host of others. So stay tuned here for more advanced suspension topics than you can shake a stick at.

warning, no talk of 19s, rear sway bar only upgrades, and no "why do I need to corner balance my car with my bumpstop coilover set up anyway?" questions.............LOL

Too funny, I'm honored to be mentioned in such esteemed company. Excited to see what comes up.

I think all questions should be sent to Myle's first for "approval". He'll be our "Dear Abby", and we can all be the esteemed staff of ghost writing information gatherers. He can then post those deemed appropriate and we can all have at it and answer them here! Sound good?

That makes me like the lady in the "spa" who takes your money first before you know what you're getting into right?

Exactly! Madame Myles, here to service all your advance suspension needs. Come in to my parlor!

Just for giggles....Most strut equipped vehicles will have a motion ratio of between 1:0.9/0.9, i.e. 10mm of travel at the wheel would equate to 9 to 9.5 mm at the spring. Therefore, as an example, a height change of 9mm at the spring seat of a coilover would deliver 10mm height change at the wheel. Just FYI

Does anyone have shock dyno charts for any of the popular Impreza-fitment coilovers? I think it'd be interesting to see how each manufacturer valves for their given springrate, and compare the change in damping force over the range of adjustment. If anyone has shocks made by any of the popular JDM brands they'd like to have dynoed, Lee Grimes at Koni will dyno them for free if you ship them to him and send you charts along with commentary on the results.

Myles,

I think that sending your different struts to Lee would be awesome. ChrisDP: Thanks for that tidbit of info! I almost went for Koni shocks this year, however I ended up doing something else that was already setup the way I needed so I didn't have to do that.

Then consider it done !! I have ordered singles of each of "our" popular brands, each valved for the same spring rate also, so soon we should be able to do a ZERO 2R (Cusco) and V6 (ZEAL ) comparo. We have been talking with Moton and should have those soon (relative word), also, but those are in another category anyway. I will try to track down some barely used Ohlins (road and track) also, but here again, not in the same category.

This was already on our priority list when these parts came in for the showroom, but now there is "PRESSURE"...from the community.
