Default SD Bilstein Coilovers (complete)

Decided to go a slightly different route with my suspension. Included:
  • Stewart Development Bilstein shocks revalved to handle 550/400 springs
  • 550/400 2.5"/7" Summit Racing springs
  • Allstar adjustable perches
  • FCM bump stops
  • Brand new ISC top hats for all corners

Setup has been on my car for no more then 900 street-only miles. Looking to get $1,150 shipped in continental US.

I'm also willing to trade for something interesting.

I have this same setup but with stiffer springs and they are great. I would skip the stiffer springs if I had to do it again.

+/- 100 on each corner so 650/500 would be the stiffest I would try to run on these. Don't see why you would want to do that though - they are stiff enough to handle r-comp tires, yet can be driven on the street. It is slightly harsh with a race seat but nothing compared to spec suspension

FWIW...I run 700/450 on my revalved bilsteins...I'm probably going to 400 rear and adding the rear bar back on. So I would not hesitate to run 700-800lb springs up front. With no aero the 700 could still be stiffer on some tracks I run.


So anyone buying these don't worry. They can handle a variety of rates. I have 550/350 for bumpier tracks.

Bump for THE strongest shock on the market
