Possible Alternative to Ground Control Coilover Conversion

Postby Maet » Tue Jul 06, 2021 4:06 am

I was on a search for suspension components and I think I found a cheaper (possibly lower quality) version of the product ground control sells for the ST165. It has not nearly enough information on spring rates and such so saying I'm skeptical would be an understatement. If anyone has any info I would greatly appreciate it.

There is also kits for the AW11, SW20 and ST185.

At least once you have the seats you should be able to swap the unknown springs for some good ones of your choosing since coilover springs tend to be in fairly standard dimensions and pretty cheap.

Yeah, I shot them a email asking what springs they use along with what shocks are compatible too. I'll let you know what they reply with.
