Guys need suspension advice.

Ok I'm thinking about replacing the suspension on my 99 Saleen, and I found this eibach kit on AM. I want to know if this kit is the closest I can get to the original racecraft suspension without spending alot. The original racecraft sus is pretty expensive and if this eibach really compares to it then I might go with it.

Re: Guys need suspension advice.

so you just want to update the shocks/struts (springs possibly as well?) If you want improved handling you can look at h&r race springs (good progressive spring) and the matching bilstiens shocks/struts.

Re: Guys need suspension advice.

my H&R race are 720+lbs front progressive rate so they are very nice and stiff but ride great on the road

How much did you spent on your suspension system? And is it the closest one to the Saleen racecraft? Performance wise??

Re: Guys need suspension advice.

it probably will be superior to racecraft if you go the right way.

basically maximum motorsports has some of the best stuff out there. They sell H&R brand springs which the race are progressive and have good rates. You could also go coil overs but they are a hassle.
