Ooops, didn't see this post.
I'm on a Koni Cupkit suspension off an NB. So NB tophats, and springs meant for an NB. Unsure of rates... soft is all I can say
. I also had the shocks revalved to SPSS3 spec... so I'm all set for higher rates.
I do have a set of coilover sleeves enroute, with 12k/6k rates. Should give me a bias of about 300 higher in front vs rear.
Has an FM front bar and no rear bar.
Also, just got a fresh alignment... at the AutoX the last alignment it was on SUCKED.... -.7camber front and -1.7camber rear.
I just got done redoing it at another Firestone I like more....
F: -2.4camber, 0 toe
R: -2.1camber, 0 toe
Should be MUCH better. I'll also be going out on 225 RA1s next time... no more fooling around on tires too small for the car to get grip with.
