Dave, get in touch with Leda in the UK. They make a great coilover setup. I have it on my car and for track use it is the biz. I am running 550lb at the front and 225lb at the rear, they have 24 position damping so you can get it just how you like it. I would suggest about 2 degrees negative at the front, don't bother upgrading the anti rollbars, run your old 15" x 7" wheels with some nice Yoko A032 tyres and roast yourself some "so called fast cars....."

By the way, if you don't like the settings as supplied, Leda will valve up the shocks to your requirements. They also service the shocks so no throwing them away after two years.


I have about 2k to invest in suspension. I just picked up my aluminum control arms w/ offset bushings, rear sub frame bushings, and new front wheel bearings. I was thinking about going with coil overs. Any suggestions on the best spring and shock set up? What about the spring rates? Adjustable camber plates? I kinda have my heart set on coil overs. I just don't know enough about them. Any info would be greatly appriciated. I live in Germany so everyday is kinda like a track day. I want the set up toward the most aggressive side. Thanks to all who reply. And yes, driver's school is this summer! I'm a rookie, but I'm addicted to canyon carving!
