Whiteline Springs..Help needed

Recommended Posts

Howdy All,

This is a question for anyone that has ordered Whiteline products before... or anyone with Suspension experience.

I want to get a set of Whiteline springs for the front & rear of my car, the code numbers are 80078 & 80079 to suit import Supra (MA70).

At present I have GAB shocks/springs (Jap brand) on my car , I was wondering if the whiteline springs would be an auto replacement for the GAB springs?.. or will i need new shocks also?

Also when ordering on the Whiteline site it does not seem to give me an option of size?.. eg in the cateloughe it says 25-40mm lower than standard, but where do u get that option when ordering?

I dont want to folk out $350 bucks and find they still sit to high or dont fit.

Any idea's?.. anyone know who fits whiteline products in the CBD area?

Rob.

-25-40mm means thats how much it'll roughly lower your car compared to stock. They generalise by say 25-40mm for all their products, so you dont really have a choice. The springs only come in the Control range, and the 'Super Low' range if thats applicable to your car which I doubt. Its best to email them to find out just how much the springs will lower your car.

-It should fit on the GAB shocks no worries

-Go to www.phillcomrally.com and fire off an email to them. They'll get the stuff for you cheaper than from Whiteline Direct!!

-Anyone can fit the stuff, just take it to any suspension place, like Pedders or whatevers..

Cheers thanks for the info Mate :).

I have been speaking to a dude at King Springs, going to go with them.. Was mega helpful put me onto the best product.. also guarentee's will lower from 35-40mm which is way better than saying 25-40mm.

Looking on Phillcom Rally now.

Rob.

    • The springs just lets the valve bleed off pressure/oil and it bypasses the feed gallery and heads back to where the pickup feed is On the LS the oil gets the the bearings...eventually  This vid explains the OEM pump well IRT the pressure release valve and how the bypass works The oil pressure light coming on intamitantly could just be a sticky valve, but, why pull something apart and not put something better in  I believe the low oil pressure light comes on somewhere between 5-10 psi Well will stick a gauge in after the installation to see what difference it makes at hot idle and higher RPM, and by high RPM I mean 6300 RPM.....LOL
    • My bottom end was rebuilt... so I think it's standard? Or refreshed.. standard? I didn't do it - I bought it with a lot of receipts but it has new bearings, new pump and was re-assembled. Apparently I have the standard flow, standard pressure pump. I did notice the oil pressure for a LS at idle is quite low, but not critically bad, I am happy that it's at about 28psi now (that my gauges work/don't leak). I would have probably specced the high pressure one, but I'll admit my ignorance after making my other post, I don't see how the pressure spring changes things. Given the pressure is a resistance to flow... high flow should also = high pressure, and your oil pump specifications should be dictated by how the engine is built (hence the sincere thankyou video man)
    • my first time on the track, just after getting the 32. tyres were 3yr old NT01's, rotors were cactus, pads were street pads. You can see the vibrations when I hit the brakes lol. After this is when I put new BDA rotors, Hi Temp Brake fluid and Intima type 2 pads. Wow what a difference
    • I second the recommendation to use a power bleeder. Pressure on the cap, if you want you can try some vacuum on the bleeder too with a hand pump. Pressure is needed on the cap to make sure that everything only goes one direction instead of potentially getting air sucked into the bleeder. 
    • Which one do you use? Your bottom end is still standard isn't it?
