Aftermarket Suspension Question

#1: Maier Racing has really nice auto-cross suspension for a fairly cheap price. The description fails to mention how much it lowers the car. Can anyone provide any insight?

#2: For a similar price to Maier's rear leaf suspension, I can buy a 4 link rear from TCP with Coilovers. Should I buy Maier's rear to match the front or get the coilover rear from TCP?

Aftermarket Suspension Question

Don't get a 4 link set up, the 4 link is complete **** because the 2 upper control arms will create bind which really hurts cornering. You want to go to a 3 link set up. I personally use Maximum Motorsports for my suspension and love them, and I've autocrossed my car plenty.

It looks like this is for a classic? In that case go with a pushrod rear suspension set up.

Pushrod suspension is e-x-p-e-n-s-i-v-e. Thanks for the info about the 4 link. Maybe I'm looking in the wrong places for pushrod suspension but the maier setup is $8k.

Off topic: hey soccer been a while.

Sure is a much better price but it's still $5,300. That's about the cost for a decked out Maier IFS, Dinalite 12.9 inch Brakes, and rear leafs w/ panhard bar altogether.

Yea it can be pricey but very nice. I would still try to go with the 3 link set up in that case. I know it's a different car but I converted my 01 from a 4 link to a 3 link with my Torque Arm, and I love it.
