Here's mine with IAP sport springs and 205/50/15 tires.
It's the camera it's looks cleaner than it really is. look at the reflection in the hood do you see the water spots and dust?Hey Murray, can you throw some dirt and crap on that car of yours so I don't feel like I have to go wash and wax mine this weekend?
The springs (all sport springs) lower the car and IMO if you don't stiffen up the shocks your going to bottom out more, not a big deal if you have a pan guard.murray - if i just kept the IAP springs and did nothing else will this prevent bottoming out ?
Beautiful! Shims = wheel spacers? To widen the stance?Picture #1 - IAP springs with Koni reds, Pirelli P6000 15"-195 Tires in 2005
Picture #2 - Factory springs (no shims) Konis, Bridgestone G009 205/55 tires
Taking a break on the way to Watkins Glen in 2005.
Picture #3 - Factory springs with new shims and rubbers, new rear Koni reds and same tires
I think its time to go back to a lowered spring set-up.......but that is for another post.
Hi Jeff,Murray - that is one heck of a car!!! Of course I've followed your thread on the performance upgrades you have made and I am totally in awe!!!
Question please - The pics taken of your car in the garage- can you tell me what type of rims they are, they are sharp! In the last pic, looks as though you changed them over?
You and lgb are worse than me up all hours of the morning
Never had any problems but I only put the hardtop on to go to the track events (they require a hardtop). Yes I like the Panasports better too. I use the Borbets for my deducated track wheels.Hey Murray. How does the car ride with the hard top. IAP says their spring don't work with Quads (cars with hardtops). The original spring for hardtop cars are different. Just wondering if you had any issues.
By the way. Stick with the Panosports!!!
Shims in the spring pans to raise and level the stance.....Beautiful! Shims = wheel spacers? To widen the stance?
Thanks Rob, I like the more level stance too. The a-arms should be parallel to the ground for the best handling and the stance gives that to me. The thing that I like the most though is I don't bottom out with itShims in the spring pans to raise and level the stance.....
BTW, Murray's stance is perfect.
Thanks Lbj,clearly subjective - but i like Murray's borbets better then the panasports, either way, unlike most of us, he has the option to switch to whatever he is in the mood for. anyway you look at it - he has one of the nicest spiders on this board.
