Not sure now much traffic we get on here but would rather use forum than social media like FB etc so here goes!
Ive just re-commissioned my 91 ST185RC after long winter in the garage and suspension im not 100% happy with, I fitted some nearly new low mileage KYB dampers with new custom springs (basically same as standard CS springs just 10mm lower) and car rides really well, I feel the dampers are not man enough for the weight of car though and doesn't inspire much confidence if you try to carry more speed and feels floaty, so im looking at options for next step and there is very little I can find now they are so old, few ive come up with below..
New KYB inserts maybe better than these I have fitted but they are reputed to of only done 1k miles and look/feel good before I fitted them.
I would love to fit Koni Sport inserts with my new springs as im sure that would be exactly what im after, however finding inserts is very difficult it seems and looks like koni no longer make them ?
Coilovers I would like to avoid idealy but looks like it might be only option for new, BC racing being the main choice over here in UK and while ive used them with reasonable results on lighter double wishbone cars like MX5 etc im wary of them on heavy old celica with the Macpherson struts where strength is much more critical, ive seen a front BC strut snap on and Evo X and it wasn't pretty.
Any ideas or feedback on setups welcome.
