I am considering getting a set of coilovers. Silk Road Section RM/A8. link. The front springs are 14kg and rear 10kg. I am wondering, are they going to be too stiff for street use (occasional track use).
I have the JIC FLT2A Suspension in my GTR,it has 12kg/10kg springs,and is even on the softest setting very hard,so i think a 14kg frontspring will be far to much for roaduse,but may work very good on a flat track:smokin:
I had HKS Hipermax on mine which i believe were 10f/9r and they were far too hard for my liking and were actually not much good on anything but super smooth roads because of the lack of compliance- so i'd think that unless you only drive on flat open roads and tracks i'd think a 14kg spring would be way too hard!
one thing you might also want to consider is that a superhard front end will have your car understeering - I can't crank my front dampers to max hardness even on flat tarmac, because my car loses its immunity to that dreaded plowing as a result.
Yeah I know....but they asked me what springs to supply with the UK kits...........
We are still playing with rebound/compression and spring poundages thou . trying to get a "nice" set up. The 6 on the back is a little to hard once you wind the spring platform up to get a good ride height , maybe a 4kg/f will be better with a nice spring helper....
If you look in the Demon Tweeks catalogue you can spec pretty much any length/rate of 2 1/4 ID spring you like. If a coil-over set is too hard, see about buying the dampers only and sorting out your own springs.
Granted, I used Rally Design for all my RS2000 coil spring requirements and they were working out at about £15 each. Just trying to work out how to compare their springs which are in pounds into the metric way of thinking. Not doing too well TBH. Mind you, Its a half hearted effort LOL.
