Ahhhhhhh, the suspension!
The area of the car that I believe is most underdone, in standard form.
Front suspension starts with some Pace Engineering extended top ball joints to get the front roll centre higher and to give a better camber curve.
Bump steer correction comes in the form of a modified bump steer correction kit for an R32 Skyline GTS-T.
Additional coil springs (375lb/in) are there to give a combined spring rate incredibly close to that of 28.7mm TBs.
105 caster arm ball joints are there, too.
Standard Konis are in the picture, but these will be replaced with small bodied, suitable valved Bilstein Digressive valve dampers.
The inner box sections were seam welded, a brace is added in the engine bay (see engine bay pic). And inner guard bracing is also added. Tho new and more sturdy bracing is partly made as they give better wheel clearance.
The front anti-roll bar will be made from a piece of 1.25", 0.125" wall thickness 4130 Chromoly tube (pipe) with, with fabricated arms. This weighs less than the original AR bar, important because it's mounted at the front of the car, but should be aproximately 40-60% stiffer.
The rear is simpler.
Adjustable spring seats are welded to the original spring seats (tho I might do a better/neater job of this), 175lb/in springs (Eibach) are used and they have nylon spacers/locators top and bottom (made from a 3/4" nylon chopping board).
I made my own spherical bearing arrangement for the DeDion pivot point and polyurethane bushes are used in the Watt's linkage.
The Koni's that came with the car are still there, but again, suitably valved Bilstien Digressive valve dampers are planned.
I'd also like to make the rear AR bar adjustable.
Unfortunately the Doctor Frankenstein that lives inside my head wants to do a bunch of stuff to the suspension that would be more inline with a dedicated track car.
Well actually it would be just nice thorough suspension engineering, spring rates and damping would determine track or road usage, but I'll need to talk to a cooperative engineer first.............
