Feal Coilover Group Buy Interest?

Postby RedCelicaTRD » Tue Mar 15, 2022 1:55 pm

I’m looking to purchase a couple sets of Feal Coilovers. I have noticed a few others might be interested as well. I’m curious to see if any members are interested in a group buy. I’m trying to gauge interest before I contact Feal to see if this is a possibility. If we can get a few commitments I will probably see if any Supra people would be interested in joining. Let me know if your interested and what product you would like.

Thanks!

Hahahahah of all the timing! I JUST pulled the trigger on a set of Feal 441s. Like, today, before I checked the forums. Sorry I jumped the gun!

Going to let this sit for a few more days and see if we get more interest.

Thanks!

Feal is willing to do a 10% discount on the 441/441+ if we can get five units sold. Doesn’t have to be just for the Celica. It does need to be an off the shelf spec as custom valving takes more labor.

There's 3 of us, I was debating getting the Yellows but I'd rather the Feal since they're widely more known. $150 off is nothing to sneeze at. If two more people are in keep us posted. I hear they ride smooth and have a good range.

I’ll probably be buying two sets so we would only need one more person.

It's a long shot but tell them that my order placed 15 March for a 441 set for an 89-93 Celica AllTrac is one of our group and see if that will trip the trigger.

Just a note about when you guys do this, the spring rates do not have to be super high. I run lower springs rates than my old TEIN HAs and I am far happier with these them. I do not know what off-the-shelf rates they offer but I had my custom setup for 8/7k. I also provided them with all my unsprung rates etc...

Good point. The default spring rate for 441/441+ is 8K/5K. https://fealsuspensionstore.com/feal-co ... awd-st185/

I watched your video on the Feal suspension following the install and you seem impressed with the ride opposed to the tein. I remember riding in a few St185 with tein coilovers in the past which was absolutely horrendous.
During the unboxing you mention that you changed the topmount out for T3 instead of the standard Feal. Is this because of the camber adjustment is missing from the feal hats?

I only did it because I had those hats made so I could add caster adjustment. The feal hats are fine for typical adjustment. The caster is nice but adds other challenges since the lower control arm is fixed and I run larger than stock tires.

Usually the valving has a range of spring rates it will operate in. I will follow up and see if any spring rate changes are allowed over the 8/5 that they show.

Anyone want me to double check anything else? I still need to find out how they would like to handle payment. Hopefully just give us a discount code.

Hey I found an st165 here locally and, well, I guess it's my new project car. I would be interested in a "Max Travel" set of 441+. I realize I'll have to come up with spacers or mod the fronts to fit.
