I had my JRi SA setup rebuilt about a year ago because I noticed the rears were obviously leaking..and I live in Japan so shipping was HEFTY. After 1 year they're leaking again.... getting pretty annoyed with this.
On the smooth roads the car is not in the same control as it was before and at the track the high speed stuff aint nearly as planted i bottomed out the rear shocks hard on a high speed rut section at the bottom of a hill. i actually heard a smack of metal! but i've since moved up to 425 front, with the factory GT front sway bar and kept the 150 rear, and use the super thin 18mm rear sway bar.Well I guess that's the story all over the world....... Thats quite a drop in spring rate!!! I was thinking of going from 600/350 to 500/300..... But 150 in the rear??? Must be quite the shock!!
Grant.. i thinknthe rear frequency is a tiny bit slow now formthe faster 425 fromts so im going to install a 175 rear today. i belive something is coming lose in the rear shocks / mounts so i need to inspect it anyway. will report back on it. fyi w that huge jounce bymper on the resr shock i dont think it can bottom out so it must have been a lose or worn fastener. stay tunrdThanks for the update Jeff. Glad it worked out and that it wasn’t an unreasonable cost to fix clowny mistakes from the other guy.
But I’m not surprised that you have issues bottoming out with 150 lb./in. springs.
