    Just picked up some DMS 2way 50's for my 2004 USDM STI. I was planning on running them with groupN tops, but am having problems. The rear spring perches are contacting the group N strut tops at the boot connection even if I remove all the extra spacers for more clearance. Do people just cut...

    New to rally and picked up an open light Impreza wagon a couple of months ago. The car has been used for stage rallies up here in the pacific northwest. I plan on doing the same once I've fixed it up a bit. Curious as to spring rates and sway bars others are running for this type of terrain. -Adam

    I have a set of coilovers for a BMW E36 chassis. The fronts have never been installed. The rears have about ten miles of city driving on them. I have an E46 and were going to modify the car to make them fit but have decided to go another route instead. Like I said, the rears and fronts are...

    Quick Question. I'm just curious if anyone thinks the following spring rates will be too stiff for SCCA rallycross: 89 Honda CRX Si (~2350 lbs with driver and full of fuel, stock weight distribution is 62/38% Front/Rear) 225 lb/in Front 225 lb/in Rear Some information I have found say stock...

    Hey guys, We rallied a 92 Festiva L in the 100 acre wood this year and we're currently beefing up our suspension. We looked into the Dynamic Spring thread but never really got a solid idea on what's going on with it, plus it was very old. Our Idea is to run 2 springs at about 8" a piece but...

    Saw these at PRI. The ID is 46mm, the OD is 50mm (just like DMS). So don't get too confused by the "46mm" terminology. Street price is supposed to be $549/corner. It's designed so that you machine the tops to what you need, and you weld on the ears/mount you need at the bottom. They plan to...

    I'm building a Subaru WRX STI rally car and need help with proper suspension set up! I am planning to run hot bits adjustable rally coil over setup. I need help with Valve rates. What is a good base line setup? What about alignment? What should I run in the way of caster and camber? Any help...

    I picked up a clean, low mileage 1985 XR4Ti this week with plans to rallycross and ultimately stage rally it. My perverse need for a RWD and uncommon car to drive got the better of me. :rolleyes: The car currently has Koni Red adjustables and stock springs on it, but I figure something more...

    Its come time to start sorting the suspension for my rally project. I have everything figured out except the dampers. Im running on a budget, so ideally I would like to keep costs low. This leads me to a simple strut, coilover sleeve combo. I have tentatively settled on Koni's for their...
