removed the front arb too, but wouldnt mind trying a small one. only have a gti one myself. thing it might be too much!
that is a nice setup...Opinion.

similar to what i use and dont lower the cat to mutch.






not just coilover kit but big mod in the strusts whith a new tube to acept 41mm bilsteins,can easely convert to gravel.
the rear ones are full rose jointed and doubles sizes off b8 bilsteins will put fotos.

Default good llooking

besides the good looking the front one are not working as should ...maybe ok for tarmac rally but not for circuit....seen a 106 forum ..and it seams the problem is a very long spring, i wll take them out off the car and back to builder.

anyone whith the same problem?? the car is to high...and the springs are at the lower limit...

Check the spring length and get shorter ones. At a guess you are running an 8 inch spring. If so try a 6" at the same poundage and work from there. Sometimes a little experimentation is needed to get it right.

Default whith cheaper setup

so ive trieded the cheper track day set-up whitch is:

normal shocks whith a quicl travel to suspencions workshop and they make then A LOT HARDER, plus normal lowering coils -20mm??

the result? i loved it , the are a lot hard then the billis coilovers and the cost less the half the price.

you can send even a blowed old strut and the can return a circuit capable struts , the same for the rear.

its a oem saxo strut rebuild plus difrent dampening .

at mx and enduro bikes this is a normal mod.


i ve send my coils back to the builder and demand for " a KART " type suspencions.


also go to try camber to adjust plates, the ones that screw on top!!!

What sort of handling would you get from a car that has been lowered front but not at the back?

more oversteer probably. Depends how extreme the difference is and how stiff the front setup is though

Is there a setup out there for 106 that allows you to keep a standard ride height/comfort?

i has been lowered front and back ..
the point is..coilovers wont justify.

if trackday day only car, a decent upgrade modifieded stock rear ones and modfied front stock sruts can made a very good circuit ones, and alot cheaper..

www.sosuspensoes.com


take a look at this one...PS: only example , this is not my suspencion guy!!!!
but as alot off fotos.

if rally ..i would say thar coilis are inspensable for suspecion travel...we (i think) search for controled stifeness.

How do people go about setting up there dampers (for people with adjustable bump and rebound)?

Do you just adjust till what you feel is adequate? I know this would different to road than on track.

It depends on what tyres you use, more grip = stiffer suspension in my book.

If running slicks and camber I'd say 400lb minimum for a full track car.
