Sorry for all the questions. You keep answering them and it makes me come up with more lol.

Yes, any 62mm ID 180mm tall coil will fit the front. When you get down into a 4kg coil the ride height will change. It is half the normal coil rate. The standard coil is 180 mm so a replacement coil should be the same, unless we really drop down in rate for drag specific use.

If you went from the standard 8kg coil to a 7kg or a 9 kg same length coil no height adjustment would be required. There would be a slight difference in ride height, but we would be splitting hairs.

I'm running xA's and I've loved street driving at 19 front, 12 rear.

Maybe I'm running them backwards, but this gives me stock riding comfort and the rear end squats just enough when punching it from a roll.

Just make sure when you punch it that it's not a donkey punch, that could get ugly.

Could I donkey punch it if the rear gets jacked up to 20?

Ok by me and the Pedders coilovers, but there may be a few driveline parts that get bent out of shape about it

For the street lately I've had her on 11f and 7r. Going to double check that to be sure, but I think I want the rear maybe slightly stiffer or the front a little softer. I kind of feel like the back dips more than the front.

Question--- by clicking up say to 20 vs 6 in the rear, do you essentially make the rear more stable?

What im trying to get at is, in low end gears (all nannies ON) if I get on it the rear wiggles around quite a bit at setting 6. (Pedders). The tires dont break loose per say just the chassis feels like is swaying back in forth in the rear. All my bushings are replaced btw. stock sways so that may be the case. Let me know your thoughts
Thanks

Final pricing will be locked and loaded for SEMA, but we could make an exception for the right person

Front - That is a lot of camber for the street and too much toe-in IMHO.

Rear - Is that toe-in or toe-out? It appears to be toe-out? That will create a loose feeling in the rear if so.

Kind regards,

These last 4 pages make my head hurt. i have 2 weeks to get smart on all this suspension jargon. I am having my Pedders Justice package installed and over seen by the man himself!

Anyone have any suggestions on where to start?
