Superior Suspension

4 Lincoln St Minto NSW 2566

(02) 9603 0100

I have organised a SAU Group Buy for Whiteline suspension components and Bilstein shock absorbers for R33GTST Series 1 and Series 2. We get 15% discount off recommended retail and free freight if the individual order is over $500. Plus anyone who spends $1,000 or more gets an additional 5% discount.

I have chosen the springs rates and the stabiliser bar rates based on my experience with this model. Plus the shocks come with matching valving for those spring rates and 5 circlip grooves for setting the height up just how you want it. In addition the adjustable stabiliser bars come with 2 extra holes for even more adjustment.

The recommended settings for road use are also included. The savings on a full kit is around $600, so it is not only technically a great set up it is also good value for money.

Delivery is via Toll Priority and I have organised an Australia wide price, so it doesn't matter where you live, you will get the parts at the same price as everyone else.

Hi SK

how much for the following items. 

front springs

front and rear stabiliser bars

I think it will be ongoing, it depends on how many people want to join in. Plus I am going to expand it for more Skyline models, as I do the engineering on rates, settings and valving.

;) cheers :)

PS; you can buy it bit by bit of you want.

any chance on r33 gtr? if so how much?

cheers

Hi Gif, I am working on R32GTR and R33GTR, should be ready in about a week. The shock valving is quite tricky, all of the 6 valves will need changing in each shock. So maybe ~$25 per shock more than R33GTST. The springs, bars and bushes will be the same price.

:) cheers ;)

i'm interested in full kit for series one.

so free delivery plus 5% off total prices listed above?

That's the Group Buy deal, no freight and an extra 5% off for orders over $1,000. Confirm the price via PM and transfer the money, it's that simple. Unlike some other Group Buys you won't have to wait for all of the other people's orders to come in. I have arranged that each order is processed straight away.

:huh: cheers :)

How are you buddy.

The offer sounds like a great one, however i just have some questions, mainly because i dont know much about suspension

You said,

In addition the adjustable stabiliser bars come with 2 extra holes for even more adjustment."

I was initially looking for some coilovers, and i was looking at the HD Systems ones. How do these match up to those? Obviously its made by a major company, but with the adjustment, will i have similar levels of adjustment to the HD Systems. Will i be able to lower and raise them at will? What sort of spring rates are they? I was hoping to get into a a bit of drifting once the cars done, so will these allow me enough scope for adjustment?

Any help would be much appreciated.

Alex :D

If the prices are similar, I'd definately be interested in shocks + springs (maybe sway bars) for my R32 GTST, if/when you offer them.

~$1300 for a new setup seems like better value than ~$700 to rebuild my Tein HA's.

The Group Buy for the R32GTST is up, prices are posted.

:P cheers :)

Hi Alex, this is a "road" suspension set up. There will be others for drag, circuit and drift, they will be more tailored to the activity. I will be doing the engineering on them progressively over the next month or so.

The adjustable stabiliser bars mean you can have a high grip road car and a low rear grip drift car. All you do is select the large rear stabiliser bar (24mm) and change the bar settings, firm for road and really really firm for drift. If you have ever driven a drift car on the road in the wet you will know how important that ease of adjustment is.

As for a comparison with a simple set of springs and shocks, well there isn't any. You would have to have 2 sets of rear springs and swap them over, soft for road and hard for drift. In addition you wouldn't get the camber and caster adjustment (both essential in a road and drift car) that this kit offers.

Lowering and raising at will, is truly a bit of a wank. After the novelty wears off 99% of people don't bother. Plus, on a Skyline, it changes the suspension geometry so you would need to do a wheel alignment everytime you rasied or lowerd the car. Plus resetting the corner weights would be a good idea. That's what we do with the race cars every time. The reality is you won't change anything but the look by raising or lowering, the effect on handling on a double wishbone suspension is mostly because of the wheel alignment changes, not the height itself.

The bottom line, if you are going to drive the car mostly on the road and do a little drifting ocassionally then this set up will do the job. If you are going to do a lot of drifting and only drive the car on the road to and from drift events, then I would hang out for a couple of weeks until the drift kit is available. It will also have the alignment bushes and settings for that application.

Hope that answered your questions

:) cheers :)

    • We don’t build cars in stages, that’s a euro thing. Look up maatouks racing on Facebook because if you go to them they’ll guarantee you 1500hp.
    • Found an hour free from the kid & wife, decided that I needed to have a selectable rev limter for skid pans (which I go here and there). Knowing a high RPM on a wet skid pan will just result in too much wheel speed, having a selectable mang mang limiter essentially will limit the wheel speed when I'm bashing 2nd gear   1x can button, 4x limiters: 7000 rpm 7500 rpm 8000 rpm 8600 rpm  
    • But, the reason I remembered this thread was I had to change the rear pads yesterday, and jeebus how hard did they make it. Clearly nissan US engineers are not the same as nissan Japan's people. Apparently they had issues with pads falling out of the rear brakes in the very early models, so this is the "improved" version.  They are a large single piston design, here is the devil's spawn   You can see the pads have 2 tabs to hold them into the mounting bracket at the bottom And at the top there is a large spring clip that stops them sliding out. To change the rear pads: 1. Undo the top mounting bolt for the calliper cylinder 2. Undo the lower mounting bolt as well. That's right, you can't just leave one bolt in place and let the calliper rotate outwards to hold it while you change the pads, the whole thing has to come off the hub. Note, the pads stay in place in the calliper, because.... 3. The outer pad is held to the calliper by a spring clip on the back of the pad, and 2 tabs on the front which go into 2 holes cast into the housing You can see the channel for the tabs at the top, the only way to pull the pad out is upwards and out. This is the outer rear pad once removed 4. OK, that was the easy one. The inside pad is also held in place by spring clips.  In my case I was putting 50% worn spare pads back in while I wait for new ones from the US, but it is not possible to just slide the pad out, the piston needs to be pushed back 100% to allow the spring clips on the back of the pad to clear the piston 5. Happily, at least the rear disc just slides off the hub then, no bearings etc to deal with Reinstallation is just as painful as removal, as once the pads are in the calliper, you need to slip the lower pad tabs over the mounting bracket, then tap the calliper back into place while not mashing the dust covers of the mounting bolts. All that for a solid (not vented!) 14mm x 320mm disc, and tiny pads. Because it's a big vehicle and a single piston design, the pads don't wear evenly by literally mm across the surface That was a hell of a lot of work for a very crap design.
    • So, it's been a really long time since I updated this thread. (like, 5 years long time). The Titan is going great, we've put about 120,000klm on it, and other than having to replace the radiator because it was running hot when towing, there have been no real problems.  It has been used pretty hard between towing and going everywhere, lots of dirt/off road driving.  Get very bogged once at the back of our property, but to be fair we also managed to bog our patrol trying to get it out so it was pretty bad (managed to winch them both out in the end). Those fancy steps are also broken because the pins in both sides seized and the manufacturer won't answer re spare parts. Overall it is doing well, plenty of people space in the king cab, and still a good load space with a full size bed. The folding cover over the rear is great, closes things up most of the time but can open as much as required for taller or longer loads.   Towing is going great as well, it is very stable and has plenty of power. It still sucks to park in regular spaces, but living outside the city that is not such a big deal, we just pick our spots.
