a possible coilover matchup.

Postby jitb » Fri Feb 26, 2010 7:10 am

another option? these are coilover from a 94 Q45... and they "look" similar to the 929 build.. withthe fork design up front, and the ball bottom for the rear.?

yea i was at a shop last week, and he was telling me about the Gtr suspension from the 33-to the 34, because they have the same build.. so i may try to get one from another shop that has a pile of them..

make sure its from non hicas model.because other ones have different suspension...
btw r33/34 front shocks(fork type) look much longer than our ones?never got a chance to actually have a look at it.only saw pics

well when we were discussing the possibility, he was saying its good that its longer, because the 929 has a long sock also, because of the suspension type. And that was one of the reasons why i should give it a shot.. I may be able to borrow it instead of having to buy it...

75 mm sounds drivable to me....
just gota get higher springrates...but rear fd shcoks arent low enough....
whole suspension match up is alot of headache and homework that needs to be done...i dont even know if i do anything to sentia anymore...thinking of saving up for a lexus ls430 at some stage, and cant really keep sentia if i get a lexus

yeah, well its almost 2 years since i got it, and kinda do want to keep it(i really do love this car)but cmoon its my 3rd sentia.there is bugger all of them on our roads, so its pretty original, but then again lexus is pretty rare too and only driven by older asian guys...
parts are waay easier to find, aswell as coilovers, or even just get a controller for stock airbags and SS kit to drop it even more...but then again its like $30000nz which i dont have lol...i will need 2 years to save up for it with amount of bills i have to pay and stupid economy.
but then again my oldman promised to buy me a car when i get them a grandchild:)mmmm sweet plan lol...

we shall see, but still WE SHALL NOT GIVE UP ON OUR CARS JUST YET!
