Re: Front Coils?

<font face="Comic Sans MS">[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img] I have thought about it for a long while and it's like Troy said, there's no really good way to fit coils up front (with most A arm designs that are around)... [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img] You could go custom . You would have to build some reinforced shock towers, and the A arms would have to be designed with enough empty space inside them (between the main supports of them) to fit the coilovers. If you make the arms wide enough you'd have enough of a mounting surface to mount the coilovers and still avoid the CV shafts... [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img] Seems like a lot of effort though. And while you're designing the a-arms wider, you might as well make them a few inches longer also (and some slightly longer CV shafts) for better suspension travel... Either way that project is going to be $pendy...</font>
