Coil-Overs for the WK
 
I found this GB on another site. In case anyone is interested:

http://www.srtconnection.com/forums/...ad.php?t=16045

The Details if you dont want to click:


_______________________________________
The front of the system will be a standard coil-over suspension

The rear is a little bit of a quandary, There is not enough room to have the standard coil-over because it will hit the rear tire, plus the angle of the rear shock. The solution is to mount the spring in the stock location with a adjustment perch just like you would have on the coil-over but moved to the standard spring location. I would give a 3" adjustment. The shock would be replaced by the damper which is adjustable, but the way it mounts to the chassis the adjustment would be in accessible to adjust and you would have to loosen the dampener and swing it down, adjust it and then reinstall it.

There is a solution to this by upgrading to the circuit pro at an additional 1K+ in price so I said no thanks.

The whole system would give the end user a 0-3" adjustment (est) on ride height along with the Rebound/dampening. It would all bolt into the stock location with out any need to drill holes or modify anything.

It will be 45 days from K-sport I am going to add 15 because I know how life goes before we get any product, it has to be sent out to the factory to be made and then shipped.

Ok now Brass tacks


I have to purchase 10 kits to make this happen, I will sell each one of those kits for $1,400 each.

damn...I'm starting to think I should hold off on the after market SRT suspension and wait for this to finally come out. That would be the Sh1t!!!!

I wonder what the regular price is or is it discounted for the group buy.

Re: Coil-Overs for the WK
 
srt bilstreins are 700, springs are about 300.

so for all the adjustability, it aint really that much.....

i would hope that the GB is a deal, but I honestly dont know

Re: Coil-Overs for the WK
 
Agreed I think the price is a reasonable deal just didn't know if it was going to go up.
