The best way to tighten the rear... is free it up :yesSo the 4:10's are going in next week, the subframes will be welded on, and now I want to go to the rear suspension. Now I am NOT going to lower this car and it is not going to be used as a corner carver. I just want to tighten up the rear. Any suggestions?
It sounds to me like he wants to keep the ride quality in his car. And if he goes with UCAs with spherical bushings (the only way to do it) then he will get more noise.If you drive the way you say you want to, you WILL experience bind :yes
Suspension is MORE than just a way to keep the tires on the ground from the beginning, it is designed to keep your tires on the ground to the end. Going spherical UCA's will certainly be an improvement, but PHB or WL and TA will allow you to carry speed farther/faster and stop better as well with increased control of your ride.
OLD THREAD, i know, but Jazzer! you say that if you're not into corners you recommend full length SFC's, like this.If you are NOT into the corners, as stated in original post, I recommend you go poly/spherical LCA's and FLSFC's.
In order for ones car to hold the road beyond stock ability, one needs to tighten up the sloppy suspension components. This means that the rubber bushings and flexable arms that are absorbing the discomfort fed to your car by the road surface are generally where people start. Each compenent will only add a bit of NVH, but only you can decide how far to go. If one wants to keep his/her ride as close as possible to stock comfort, but wants a solid handling ride, I would recommend nice tires and FLSFC's. This is the biggest bang for the buck and least sacrifice in ride quality, but there WILL be some. This does NOT mean, however, that one needs to have a rock-hard suspension to hold the road. In fact, this is the LAST thing one wants in an attempt to hold the road for a DD. One can go relatively soft springs and dampers with somewhat heavier sway bars and poly bushings to gain much appreciative handling with a tight frame.you really believe any upgrade by any company will make the ride worse than stock? that there is no company out there in the world that could make the ride better than stock while upgrading a little bit?
