New Prototype Coilover Install :D


Cars all ready to go for the swap!

New Coilover display around my wheels, apparently due to the way the lower mount is suppose to go, it is not a good idea to have aluminum front lower mount, so I went with steel mount instead.


Camber Pillow ball.


All assembled by order, everything is done by hand.


Cars up, BC is coming off!


BC Coilover vs the new stuff, notice the difference in size?


Fits right in!


Now on to the back!


BC Coilover vs the new stuff, again, notice the beefier damper, also the piston rod size..





BC Coilover vs new stuff, lower spring seat, aluminum!


another compareson shot. Look at the aluminum rear lower mount, one piece!



the rears are done, gonna go out for a test!



Finished shot!

Curious which company made those, the machining on those top mounts look pretty good.

They are WAT Racing coilovers. Similar to F2's coilovers

Hey, yes, these are WAT Racing Development coilovers. they are actually quite cool, for macpherson strut fronts, they also offer an add on bearing that goes right under the top mount, it helps the front struts turn with the steering.

currently I have it setup at 16clicks into hard from full soft, the car drives real nicely, take bumps really well, it just takes it, no additional bouncy feelings after bumps.
