Default SM Bilsteins, GC collars, Eibach

SM Bilstein Shocks with GC adjustable collars and Eibach springs in the front and Ground Controls in the rears. I believe rates are 450F and 375 rears They have approx 10k on them. Its an awesome set up. Not to harsh. Awesome spring rates for the track.

All the above set up to finish 7th place in US Drift here on the east coast.
$400 for the complete set up.




buyer will recieve GC springs for the rear

Ground control springs are Eibach springs, and they are red, just like your front ones. Nevertheless, good deal for someone.

Edit: lol @ UrbanSoot, don't tell me you spend 1k on a tokico illumina setup.

Were the pictures in the original post with the car at-ride height? It looks like there's almost no travel left in the suspension at that ride height.

Yeah, the spring set up that is on the rear atm is to long. The spring is almost 7 1/4 long. I have the 6" spring that is included with the set up. Both Brainack and Newbsauce have ridden in the car with this set up-no complaints.

freaking awesome deal fo' real, lol
FYI everyone, if you want to later change spring rates they can be found for as little as $70 ea...so, put the 450's in the back and get some 700's up front with that revalve and you are uber fast on the track (common sense not included)

I have this setup on my car and love it. Its a little rough for the street, but fine for a non-daily vehicle.

Hell you can get QA1 springs to change the rates on these if you don't like the rates for <$40 from Summit racing and sell the Eibach, GCs for around the same for the pair.

Good deal.

Can you snap some pics of the rear at full droop? One from outside straight at the wheel, and from under need like the one you posted? Can you also get me the wheel-center-to-fender measurements for the pictured ride height and full droop?

I might snag these just to see what the shocks feel like. If they're still available.

$400 for this setup, then have Shaikh at FCM revalve the Bilsteins to something that's not stupidly uncomfortable, and you can have a pretty badass setup.

Hate to disagree with you sav, but 750$+ for a revalve + 400$ for these shocks is just not reasonable.

I say run them as is, only until they die revalve, otherwise just run koni's out of the box + collars and springs.

I have to disagree with you, too. You're not just getting shocks for $400. You're getting GC collars and springs, too. Right?

rappadan, any idea if the collars will fit Konis? I know there are differences, but I'm not privy to exactly what those differences are.
