Coilover Fitting

Postby Gerbo » Mon Mar 05, 2007 11:23 am

Anybody know where I can get coilovers fitted and then the wheels aligned and how much it is going to cost?

Phoned First Stop and Advance Pitstop and they will not fit coilovers. Apparently fitting a coilover is different to fitting a shock :roll:

sorry for double posting i forgot about this thread. Just got onto the tuning factory there and got a price of 960 for D2 coilovers and fitting for approx 250. Camber can only be set visually as the dont have any equipment to do the laser alignment. Anyone know where i can get the laser alignment done?

not sure, i'd rather leave that up to the professionals! What happens if you dont put one on right? the wheels comes off, coilover snaps and car goes through a wall? I'd be kicking myself for a year saying " Why didnt i get the fitted professionally!!

I doubt coilovers are easy to fix!

Ha ha only buzzin, as you said they might not be set up right when u put them on and u could damage something or get a s@3! load of tyre wear or something. You could styick it on a trailer and bring it to them! How much would they charge to fit them?

Suspension is a BITCH to do on the Altezza but nothing bad is going to happen from fitting your coilovers yourself (as long as u tighten all bolts lol) All the adjustments are at the shop & it's pretty obvious whether they're all even. Worst that can happen is uneven tyre wear & handling being off...

Any of the places that do tracking will do camber etc too

My mate said it was easy enough to be honest, i know of a good place down in bantry that do tracking so i'll prob tkae it down there afterwards, they got my mates S14 set up perfectly, he went to a few people and they cudn't do it properly...
