Oooh, perfect timing for me...

What's the ride height adjustment like on these? I'm aiming for a 40-50mm drop, rather than slamming my Foz.

They are adjustable from stock height down to the point where you need to lower the middle of the road to clear the car.

Gday Xt for me,

Will these give more clearance for tyres?

How do the spring rates compare to stock?

Can I rally them?

Do you mean on the inside of the wheel or to the guard?
This is an SH front, you can see the clearance to the inside of the tyre with Rota 'Gravel' 'Hyper Black' 18x8.5 +44 offset Wheels.

I am not sure what the stock rates are but the coilovers are much firmer. You can see the full fitting chart with spring rates here:

Can I rally them?[/quote] Absolutely. They are available in a Track Spec, but I think for rally (gravel) you would want the Street Spec.

Thanks for the info, Im trying to fit 31/10.5 R15 MTRs on an SG and hammer it off road.

Yeah I meant inside clearance between spring and tyre and there is heaps.

I'd like to say I fully understood the linked fitting chart, I really would. I need to do some research. I see you didn't recommend these for offload due to the heavy springs but could you supply them with softer?

Are the shocks rebuildable? Or available in pairs if I had to replace?

Are they the same length as the standard struts?

Would I gain a little height at max due to less sag?

Do they have the same amount of travel?

Is the difference between street and track just spring rates?

How much to post to 6062?

Sorry for all the questions But I can't find anything specific to my application so I'm hoping to break some new ground for the off road crew.

Cheers Seanan.

I think I can chime in here and say that if you had the front and rear swaybar links removed for offroad, you would get some good articulation and the spring rate would be fine if your tyre pressures were low and your not attempting high speed over bumpy roads etc.

Unfortuately I can't supply softer springs which I think you would need for for the rough road compliance. Always remember that grip comes from achieving maximum tyre contact and the standard spring rates seem to be pretty good for bitumen especially in the wet, which needs slightly softer rates than dry. This is the reason I am dubious about their performance in a rally situation.

They are rebuildable in the technical sense however due to the special equipment required (gas pressurised) its probably cheaper to buy a new set. I can ask the factory if I can supply a pair.

stilson wrote:

I haven't measured the stock struts, sorry but the effective length is very adjustable.

stilson wrote:

Coilovers wont sag, and you may be able to adjust them to a higher setting than stock, but I have not tried.

stilson wrote:

Yes and no. The travel limits are predominately set by the bump stops, but the coilovers would rarely reach them due to the much higher than stock spring rates.

stilson wrote:

Actually the spring rates are the same, it's the oil in the damper that is different. Street is 5w and the track is 20w
