Just after a few options in suspension packages prices and components for a VE2 SS Ute.
The car will be used as a daily drive, i want it to sit about half an inch above the tyres (245/45R18) all round and be able to retain a good ride and be able to perform good aswell. Also i will be fitting in the near future 20x8.5 fronts and 20x9.5 rears will this affect it at all.
Any help would be greatly appreciated,
The entry level package I would recommend would be our KYB and Kings combo, which is $750 for the complete vehicle kit.
Otherwise if you're willing to spend some decent money to get a quality setup that will handle lower heights whilst still riding and handling great, I'd go Bilstein and Kings. The kit price on Bilstein and Kings is $1588 for both front and rear.
The Bilstein B8 are a full monotube shock (versus twin tube for budget shocks like KYB, Boge, Koni etc.) and handle high levels of lowering very well. The fronts are also an inverted style of shock, more commonly found on high end setups like DMS, Ohlins etc.
With regards to height, basically need to know what your current hub to guard measurement is, and how much lower you'd like to go, or what measurement you'd like to end up with. Prices are all the same regardless.
Easiest way to order is credit card over the phone, 1300 884 836, or else swing me your details, full name, delivery address (preferably a work or business address!!), contact number and email and I can fire you through an invoice with direct deposit details.
Any other questions just let me know!
Thank you Greg,
Would you recommend doing anything in the swaybars and bushes at all.
Yeah, depending on what you're using the car for, but again, depends how much you're looking to spend. Whiteline Adjustable sway bars to suit are $295 for the front, and $275 for the rear.
On a 2011 vehicle, there probably isn't a lot of point doing a heap of bushes unless you were doing competition work, or had money to burn.
Thanks Greg, i use it as my daily drive but what i would like to do is minimise the body roll etc, and to pretty much handle like its on coilovers without the ride that coilovers have if that makes sense lol.
It does yep, I'd probably just start with a front sway bar, not worry about the rear.
okay thanks Greg for your helpful advice will speak to you soon in regards to purchasing
No dramas at all, speak to you then!
