Finally got my suspension...

Funtion & Form Type 2.5 coilovers lowered to the lowest setting covered by warrenty (lowest they will go and get the full stroke of the shock). The rear is going to be coming up a good amount, my suspension is for handling not looks. I haven't had a full chance to really play with them or get propper pics yet. Just thought I would share.

I have a few more parts on the way then I will be messing with my height and everything. Then a review of the coilovers will be done.

Re: Finally got my suspension...

Did you read my thread?

The rear is coming up probably an inch and a half if not more. With the rear that low the suspension is not doing its job. It is going to be set up right once I get the time and the rest of my parts.

These coilovers came on their lowest setting and I was just interested in seeing what that was.

They will go lower but if you do go lower you will not get the full stroke of the shock, that voids the warrenty. You know I am more about handling than looks so that is why I haven't taken them lower and will be going up with it.

To be honest I am amazed at how the car rides even being as low as it is right now.

The coilovers alone set me back $1125
I probably should have went with a custom koni/gc set up for that price but I wanted to take a chance and try something new.

Re: Finally got my suspension...

I'm getting the Type I coilovers for my 4th gen. Can't beat $630 shipped for a set of coilovers built by a company who is constantly making improvements and upgrades to their designs. I just wanna get low and ride half decent. No track time for me lol.

I would suggest those for anyone wanting the same thing you want. Excellent deal indeed.
