Coilover set up

Postby madmart100 » Thu Jul 04, 2019 4:28 pm

After seeing all of the recommendations for MeisterR suspension, i took the plunge and ordered a set of SPORTIVE coilovers for my 2002 montana
Fitted them two weeks ago and OMG they are incredible. the car feels soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much better to drive. Not too hard but so much more responsive in the corners.
Everyone needs a set of these!!!!! :auto-layrubber: :auto-layrubber: :auto-layrubber: :auto-layrubber:

My question to the 'menders' is, what is the best ride height for handling? car is running on 16"s

Thanks

Its down to your personal style of driving not ours, what works for me, won't work for you,and so on, so it is down to what you're happy with and enjoy and like, there is not really a right and wrong, if you feel that it looks to high then lower them 1/2" all around and so on , lowering will make it stick better, but to low makes the roadster a nightmare with pot,getting up or down drive ways and the lovely speed humps, so don't go stupid low if she is a daily,
Also if you are on budget tyres you will lose what you are doing ,and we is highly recommended that you should get done now after changing suspension is a full alignment with fast road/motorway settings, then you will feel the benefit of the suspension even more .
Hope that makes sense and helps.

Tyres will be getting changed so something much better and a bit wider with new rims as well as soon as funds allow.

Will deffo look into the alignment setup. Just need to find someone in Hampshire that knows what they are doing

Thanks for the help

General question if I can jump on this thread. As there seems to be an informal affiliation with Meister and these shocks get good reviews on here. Is there an opportunity of a MM group buy or MM discount for forum members?

Could be a win-win situation?

As for tyres that will not kill your pocket but are great tyres in the wet and dry for these roadsters are uniroyal rainsport 3, same par as pilots but a hell of a lot cheaper.
