im in 100% agreement with everything you are saying for any car that goes on circuits or is used for some sort of sprint event, hill climb or any other sort of motorsport where you may actually need to mess about with changing settings and what not, but im yet to meet anyone with coilovers that winds up or down their ride height, changes spring rates or damping/rebound settings depending on what road they fancy going for a drive down or whether they'll be coming home with some shopping in the back so i really cant see the point of having them on a mainly road driven car.DavidGTiR said:For the majority of people yes you are correct but this is only because people buy coilover kits and let other people or garages fit them and never adjust them to suit their own driving style. This can cause issues under certain circumstances i.e braking incorrectly into corners or lifting off the throttle too sharp which can easily be dialed out using spring rates, adjustment on the shocks or setting the corner weights up.
That's exactly why I went down the coilover route.Animaldaz said:I think the majority buy coilovers as there isnt many alternatives.
i can have a look at the weekendTrondelond said:Ok, I've received an answer from the Koni distributor here in norway wich is roughly as follows :
Koni just supply universal inserts for the Sunny N14.
They are hydraulic twin tube designs that are adjustable for stiffness.
Front : if KYB OE struts with a 45mm diameter, item no : 86-2463
Rear : if KYB OE strut with a 51mm diameter, item no : 86-2464
Sooo.. anyone know the dimensions of the RNN14 ones?
i'd put money on the konis lasting far, far longer than the d2's tbh which, when if you had to replace, would then mean they were cheaperyoungsyp said:That and the fact that if you did manage to source a set of Koni inserts, with the added cost of new springs, it would easily cost more than I bought my (tailored) D2 coilover set up for.
forget the sh!te bolts from whiteline and get some k-macs, problem solved 8)You'll then need to get a set of unreliable camber adjustment bolts to get any decent level of negative camber at both ends
