New Suspension Upgrade

Post by LXStangFiveOh on Sat Aug 18, 2012 2:41 pm

So my suspension is really worn out on the '93, so I have been searching and reading different reviews about setups and finally bit the bullet this afternoon. I ordered Koni STR.T struts and shocks and the Steeda Sport springs. I already have Maximum Motorsport CC plates on the car and the UPR bumpsteer kit sitting in the garage. Can't wait to feel the difference between my worn out stock setup and this one!!

That sounds like a fun project and should make a world of difference!

Could do it but don't have the time right now, I'm going to have JJ at Woodbine Motorsports do the install. Waiting on the Prothane offset steering rack bushings and sway bar bushings then I'll figure out a time to get the car to him.

Picked up the car this afternoon.... Had a blast driving it home. So THAT'S what it feels like to be able to take a corner with confidence! So much less body roll now.

Good for you man that is great. How is the ride over all going straight? Smoother, rough or just stable and nimbel?

Well the dampers that were on there were so worn out that any small bump was jarring, but the ride is very comfortable and smooth now. Not harsh in any way.

I THOUGHT that was your car over there the other day. Nice looking car, my first thought was "wonder if it's for sale"!

Haha thanks man. Yea I was talking to JJ and he had a red GT/CS that had painted on stripes and then the conversation went on and he mentioned a woman with a white GT/CS... So of course I knew who he was talking about!!

Thanks for the compliments, I know it's filthy too. But nope, not for sale!
