Front Suspension

Hi, my winter project is to change the rear and front suspension, i have the rear suspension covered but the front I need a bit of advice on.

I have a sierra base S7 with in board spax adjustable coil overs that came in the kit I would think, I want to keep with the in board adjustable coil overs but i think the the springs are a little to hard but do not know what spring rate is fitted but more importantly what springs and shocks should I get and where to get them, i love the ride but just think a softer spring would be better without going to soft.

Any advice would be grateful especially from anybody who has changed there shocks with this set up. Cheers Andy

Tie bar conversion to get rid of that over stiff sierra anti roll bar and change original springs for some around the 120lb mark. I changed the the dampers too as mine were an unknown quantity. Dampertech is where I got my springs and shocks from, still got the contact details if you need them.

it might not always be the case but from memory the red springs were 180lb as said above and the green zimmers were 320lb. I think there were blue springs as well but not sure what poundage they were. I would guess 350-400 as they were used on the rear of the 2b which needs somewhere round there.

My S3 has Gaz coulovers with 180lb on the back.

The shocks mount on the rear of the A arm so slightly more leverage and travel than shocks mounted in the original spring pan.

 

Front set up has tiebars and Gaz coilovers with 125 lb springs

Thankyou guys, for that information and as usual it is a great help to me. I have just sworn my motor and will be doing the rear first. Thankyou Pete for the offer of your spear springs and i may take you up on that when I come to the fronts but i will let you know if that is ok. Thankyou guys once again for your time and help cheers
