Default GPMoto Coilovers for BL/BP BE/BH on sale!

Hello Fellow Legacy Ethusiasts!

We are pleased to announce our new online store is open and we are having a sale on our GPMoto coilovers. These are for the BL/BP cars but they have the exact same suspension design of the BE/BH cars so they will fit those model years also.

check out our post in the vendors section HERE

spring rates are 8k front and 8k rear.

let me know if you have any questions!

thanks

Ben

Is this true? I asked this months ago and people said no. The BL/BP suspension != BE/BH. Has anyone tested them out on a BE?

Could I be the guinea pig? (seriously)

I have never heard that the BL/BP suspension is backward compatible.

Ok, apparently the legacy coilovers that came in are still 6k/6k i thought they changed the spring rates.

Who said they are not compatible? I just installed some lowering springs on a GT a few days ago and the whole rear suspension is the same, the front looks the same as well. Now, that is not a 100% confirmation, however they look the same and another reliable source told me they are the same as well.

iamrazor-sure you can be guinea pig, just pay us 1400 and we'll ship you a set If they dont fit then send them back.

Maybe i'll just put them on my BE and show you all

thanks

If I had $1400 it'd be in the mail.
how about lining up the two stock struts (BE vs. BL) and taking some measurements / photos?

I see the wheelbase is about the same, but what about the weight? Does the 05 use the same multi-link rear suspension that the BE does?

yea the multi link rear is identical, the weight on the BE is a bit heavier, maybe 200lbs, so 50lbs a corner.

I will take some measurements, basically i think the real thing i need to check is the top hat measurements and bolt spacing otherwise its the same, but i will check some other things also when I have one in my hand.

I was hoping the BE would be lighter.
then we could use BL/BP stocker takeoffs (get 'em for cheap).
I've got 90k on my car. I'm sure even new stockers would make it handle better..

does the GT get the same susp as the i?

Its an interesting question. The topmounts between the BL/BP and BE/BH JDM Bilstein setups are quite a bit different. However thats with a given oem setup and doesnt mean the bolt spacing is different.

Hey guys/gals, sorry i was at the shop till late last night so didnt get time to take any when I got home. I will try when I get back later today.

Subysouth-do you have any more specific info on the difference in tophat and what problem that might cause?

Its more of a problem specific to the Bilstein mounts. There are several threads on the topic on LegacyGT.com. I was a participant in a couple, you could search under my name there.

Like I said though, it may not affect bolt spacing or use of fully adjustable coilovers at all. The adjustability of coilovers makes them viable if they will bolt up. That spring rate is high enough for the BE/BH's ponderous bulk I would think.

Yea, the spring rates should be sufficient, there is a 7k/7k set also available if desired.

Alright sorry about the delay, I took some measurements tonight and some pics. The rear suspension is identical except for one piece, but that part does not relate to if the suspension fits or not. I took measurements of the top hats the best I could. The three surrounding bolts seem to be on a 3" radius from the center of the strut to the center of the bolt. from bolt to bolt they are 5.25" center to center.

If someone could measure on their BE that would be greatly appreciated, unfortunatley I cant measure mine since it is back home in another state.

thanks

I have been told these will fit 100%, and that is my opinion as well, but if anyone would like to totally confirm with some measurements, that would be great

thanks
