180 wanabe posted a topic in General Automotive ChatI was thinking of getting some new suspension arms for my car I have started to do time attack again @ QR and have managed a 58.25 on the sprint track, with my only suspension mods being coilovers My car is a daily, although I don't drive it all that often as I live a 10 min push bike ride away from work I have heard that S15s have some sort of factory defect in the rear subframe which causes misalignment and would like to correct it. I would also like to have greater control of how much camber I can run on the car. From what I have read, spherical bearing which I believe some people call rose joints have less play than rubber ones. This means that under load there is less/no play compared to rubber units, which means that the alignment that was dialed into the car will be very much the same when under stress ie cornering etc. The negatives of spherical bearings are noise/harshness and a shorter lifespan. I'm also not 100% sure if they are legal in QLD. I guess it all depends on who pulls you over, but for the most part I am trying to keep my car as legal as possible. Now the hardened rubber option is going to have more play under load/stress because they are made of rubber. However compared to the stock units on my car that have been there since 2001 they are going to be a shitload stiffer. I would also prefer less noise, I just had alloy sub frame collars fitted and am only just tolerating the extra feedback/noises that have come about after they were installed. I came across these kits from hardrace which seem reasonably priced and for the most part seem a lot more reputable than your typical china racing ebay crap. http://www.hard-race...&product_id=862 - Rubber http://www.hard-race...&product_id=861 - Spherical Any thoughts, ideas, opinions on one style vs the other?
Hey guys, So basically trying to get a feel for this, Would people be interested in cheap tyres fitted? Im talking 235/45/17 tyres fitted for $75 including getting rid of your old rubber? Just seeing if theres enough intrest to make it worthwile, any sizes would be available but i would only keep a few common sizes stocked, Let me know if people would be wanting an ongoing supply for drift etc. Cheers guys
