Hey guys, I recently bought a 1998 R34 GTT Coupe, and it has come with some Tein Super Street coilovers (P/N QEN68-Z1531 at the front and QEN69-Z1531 at the rear), which just don't fit the car properly, it sits too low in the front and can't be raised any more. This means that the car scrapes on every bump in the road and even on moderate cornering. As far as I can tell, these coilovers are designed for an R33 GTR?? So I am planning on changing them out for Bilstein shocks and King springs, which I have been doing a bunch of reading about Sydneykid's group buy back in about 2006 I think. Seems like a really good street/occasional track setup for a daily driver. Just wanted to check that it's still a good setup nowadays for the money. Also, I noticed that Sydneykid said that the ones he sold were individually valved for each sale: "Yes Daniel, I have specified revalving for the Bislteins to suite the spring and bar rates I have chosen." So I'm wondering if I will need to get my Bilsteins revalved as well? Additionally, I have read on the group buy that the Bilstein shocks are height adjustable by circlips? But I'm not quite sure what this means and if it is specific to the Sydneykid group buy, or if all Bilstein shocks are height adjustable. If I am aiming for approximately the 350mm front and 340mm rear (wheel centre to guard) that is recommended in the group buy, will the Bilstein shocks and kings springs around that? Sorry for asking so many questions, any help is appreciated, cheers.
These were custom re-valved by Gary (Sydneykid) and are out of a winning production car. They are not from the SAU group buy. Have moved to Racepace Tein Circuit Masters. Bought from a member on here. They stand up quite well against the Teins especially considering the big price difference between the two. At this price I believe they are great value for money. Spring rates : 7kg/mm and 5kg/mm. $850 + Freight if required. Melbourne 0425 730 031 (ignore the swaybars on top)
As above i'm looking to get some softness back into my ride.. Located in Sydney Thanks!
