[ does a middle finger salute @ the slammed police ]
I bought these VR6 Coil overs , they are a bit tatty, but aren't Bilstein as advertised, as I found out that.....
***H&R *** use Bilstein inverted monotube dampers....
Once upon a time they looked like this....
New set is £971 at the moment!!
H+R Coil-Overs - VW
Corrado Models with Plus susp.
Lowers by 30-70mm/30-60mm. See notes 13, 17
£971.23 inc VAT
Not very often I get a proper bargain - but this time I bloody did! :lol:
Fitted them night before last, in the dark .
Far too low = front arch - tyre scrubbage.
Raised it 15mm on the threads (95mm of thread) @ the front and dropped it down at the back (50mm of thread) to give a level stance.
Needs the geo setting up and once I've moved the battery going to get it corner-weighted. [ChrisP might need your mate Jtech's details?]
Even though the Bilstein dampers are not adjustable it gives a firm but well damped ride, isn't crashy at all.
Springs are 180-70 front 300-50 rear
[QUOTE]The way H&R lists springs is "length-rate"
The 180-070 in the front is the length of the spring in milimeters, 180 and the rate 070. The 300-050 for the rear is the spring length in millimetres, 300, and the rate 050.
The rates are listed in newtons/mm of travel and can be converted to lbs/inch as follows, 1 newton / millimeter = 5.71014715 pounds force / inch.
So 70N/mm = 399.7 lbf/in
and 50N/mm = 285.5 lbf/in[/QUOTE]
Fitted gen VW new header tank as my old one was no longer transparent so meant taking the cap off to check the level..
Yes. I could go lower with the rear ride-height, but have to consider arch clearance as I have increased the rear track 20mm each side. Also not tried my 888s on there yet, as they have squarer sidewalls may have probs with tyre>arch scrubbage. B)
