I've been looking at adjustable perches on Summit; anyone know of a source for STEEL adjustments?

I'm afraid the aluminum spring adjuster will give under the sport springs. I can machine a spacer to fit our springs.

I can see QA1 right on the side of the spring.... I think I'm going to eventually go the same route on the front. Very nice setup.... How have you liked them so far?

The only issue with those shocks shows in the photo; The bottom mount is custom for our cars. :(

I tried to find the guys that made the GP a few years back and couldn't, I hope you have better luck. :) Or know better people than I do.

I'd buy a set. :)

I would be up for a group purchase on coilovers. has anyone tried to adapt a set of bc coilovers? Im assuming not, because I would have probably heard about it. the biggest problem I'd imagine wouldn't be the mounting (there are plenty of cars with lower mounts like thunderbirds, 350zs for instance), I would presume that finding the proper spring rate and shock valving would be the issue. That being said, It is possible. However, getting a company to work with you on it would be much more challenging due to the severe lack of market - the reason why we cant have anything nice.

also, My konis are already leaking, and I have had them for less than a year and maybe 3-5000 miles of driving although I'm pretty sure it has been less than that.

:tongue: :rolleyes: Driving or Drifting? LOL

3-5000 miles of Drifting = 100,000 + miles of HARD driving.

i like mine a lot, you can really tell the difference between the soft and hard sides. i havent really been able to dial in what exact setting works the best for me, just havent had enough runs with them.

3 drift events and maybe 3000 miles of regular driving. I really like the shocks, but im not sure whats up with the leaking. I've also noticed that it seems like the adjustment in the rear is different between the two shocks. basically if it takes 2.5 turns on one side soft to full, it takes 2.25 turns on the other....strange

alrighty then, calling Denny at D & D Race Technologies 320-629-4769 and get another GP done for the QA1's. He's the one that did the original gp.
seriously, Ill buy a set

What's the approximate cost going to be, and is this for all 4, or just the front two?

Oh, you are in soooo much trouble now. I am indeed going to call you. I am sooo going to call you. In fact, I am going to give you sooo much of a phone call that I've hired the entire Wells Fargo call center in Beaverton, Oregon to also call you; Collections, Customer Retention, Subliminations, Credit Card Services....you get the picture.

They're all going to call you now. At the same time. Only one will get through, of course, but my heinous plan, in addition to using up corporate recourses to engage in a prank call, is to create the world's biggest busy signal....
