Was thinking of doing it today till this showed up...When it's not all icky outside, install please...lol
That sounds great! When you (your linked site, anyhow) states "valve matched" for the spring rates, what is done? I'm asking about the idea that we start with your suggested 6/4K then decide on significantly different rate springs, later.The price ($950) includes free shipping. And you can add extra spring pairs (like a 5K rear, etc) for just $99 a pair.
Please keep in mind, the car will ride "softer" with the BCs set at the dampening I mentioned above. Softer than stock. The bounciness and stiffness of the stock suspension goes away.
ALSO: With BCs, the ride height setting is INDEPENDENT of the spring preload. Meaning, you can lengthen and shorten the entire shock body without affecting the shock travel or spring preload (unlike GCs or KWs). This means no matter how low or high you go, the shock will always perform the same.
Thank you. You answered my real question as expressed in +/- 2K rate factor tolerance. I understand the basics of suspension theory.Each order is custom made - meaning, someone can order 7K/5K (thats +1K front/rear) and the valving for that specific set will be matched with the spring rate chosen. And its set up to run +- 2K, if you decide to go up or down in rates later on.
Think of it like this, spring releases energy and its the job of the shock to dampen it. High spring rates, poor dampening equal a choppy ride. So the shock valving has to be matched to the spring energy.
