Just a quick reply: I'm running 8611-1257's up front on my 240sx. They're set to about 1/3 for both bound and rebound with 600lb springs. You'll be fine with those for the rates you're looking at. ...

I was messing around when I first got my S13 and inevitable put it over a curb. Along with bending all the arms and tearing apart the lower perch (or whatever you want to call the part of the coilove ...

Here's another thing I noticed:

D2 coilovers (and some others) supposedly have a 44mm piston size. Koni inserts have a 43.5mm OD. Could just swap some Koni 8611's in and call it a day....

On craigslist (LA) there's a set of "Bilsteins" for the S14 that I'm trying to pick up. Hopefully they'll be actual Bilsteins, in which case I'll have something to experiment with.

Well one thing to keep in mind with torsen diffs is that they act like an open diff once a wheel is lifted. And if I'm not mistaken people lift tires pretty frequently at autox's. Just something to ...

Wouldn't adjustability simply involve using ASN shocks instead of the SN's? Was browsing the Bilstein catalogue and saw that external resevoirs are available for those too Razz
