      To do this properly on this old girl, it will be around $3000 to get the coils, struts/ shocks, springs, misc bits, and the camber plates. Then its going to be another $200 for the upgraded mounts for the rear diff and motor mounts (already upgraded the trans mounts).
      This doesnt included figuring out which brakes I want to put on based on what wheel size I can fit once shes lowered. I WILL NOT ROLL THE FENDERS, NOR TRIM THE FENDERS.
      Shes German, not a rice burner, remember that. No need to slam her to the ground to own you at the track
      Tighten things up a bit, add some power, a little driving skill, and thats a deadly combination.

      I have read it, $3000 setup is a little different than what you have, some of the parts, like the sturts and shocks, camber plates, springs, bushings, have been speced out.
      I planned this out w/ the help of Haydn.
      That said your setup is trick and Id like to see more pics, that of the setup installed (from under the hood, through the wheel archs, etc)

      You use adjustable gas shocks, a dual spring (main spring w/ helper spring), very very good camber plates, an upper strut bar that is designed for those 'special' camber plates, and dont forget those delrin bushings.
      And how do we spend that kind of green on these cars. Two part answer, one we failed our last physc eval, two the T44 shares a lot w/ the C3 aka the UrS4 and UrS6 and those cars still have a large aftermarket following. hope that makes sense.

      Yeah, I assume you are talking about 2bennett. I'm sure their setup is a little better engineered than what I've got, but I dont think its 2k better.
      I'd take more pics but my friend broke one of my lenses for my camera. I'll try and get some in the wheel arches, but I wont be able to do it with the wheels off because I dont have the time or equipment to do much while I'm at school. Under the hood it looks stock. I didn't even touch camber.
      I am a believer in camber doesn't wear tires...toe does. So I will have the car aligned and that should take care of it. Tires shouldn't wear prematurely at all.

      One pic from Carlisle Nationals and the rest are wheel fitment test of 17x7.5 B5 S4 Avus wheels wrapped in PS2 rubber

      Sort of, it is a custom setup based on the 2Bennett design, main differences being the helper springs. The camber plates I use might be the 2Bennett ones but there not the only option for bolt on camber plates.

      Im sorry but you dont NEED bushings and a tower brace to have coilovers.
      And IMHO 2bennett is the biggest RIPOFF, all of there stuff is WAY overpriced, its insane. I feel like the just charge 2x what they need to because its hard to find the stuff elsewhere. Id rather order stuff from 034.

    17. 11-18-2009 07:55 PM #222
      They are a rip off, thats why I said "based on there design". For my purposes I need a tower brace and bushings. Its a big car and theres a lot moving around.
