What suspension are you running? Best suspension options!

Hi guys!

What suspension are you on? And what are the best options for lowering whilst maintaining good ride quality? (how much mm, comfort, springs or coilovers)

Thanks!

Have you seen the DSC Sport discussion thread?

DSC Sport allows you to programme the shocks relative to the G-Force, Speed, braking force, acceleration etc.

The range that shocks work in can also be set separately to the above.

A large % of users prefer the Comfort setting to be much softer than the standard GTR set-up.

Depends what you're after.. nice comfy road setup, or hard track flat setup... DSC controller makes the OEM setup more comfy and stiff - in C/R modes.. etc

Think the best way to go is with the controller, if you still can’t reach your desired setting then look at different valving and shims,springs.
Your controller can still be used so you have’nt thrown your money away.

If you look at the last page of the DSC Sport discussion thread, you will see there are pictures of many different years suspension, plus Litchfield and Nismo.

You will see there is a close similarity between the Nismo springs and the Litchfield springs, no surprise on how well it works on track.

Many owners with Litchfield suspension also enjoy the benefits of DSC Sport.

Swift also offer different springs that are all lower ride height than standard. They describe different spring rates against different years. This is slightly confusing since the shocks are the same across all years. You need to focus on the spring rate rather than the year if selecting Swift springs.

If comfort is more of a goal, then there are other options with the standard suspension which DSC Sport can unlock while also delivering great handling suspension.

DSC for me on CBA dampers will be adding ARB's but it transformed the car for comfort as well as handling.
