Anything else need to be done/replaced when upgrading from the standard suspension to the "Lotus OEM "Track Pack" Coil Over Adjustable Bilstein shocks" on a 07 Exige S?
save your money just stay with the stock S setup and align untill you can do the nitrons. the spring rates on the stock S are the same as the adj bilstiens. carlits not a matter of cost only, right now I just want something that is a little better then the non-track pack setup but dont want anything that is too hard for a novice to try to get setup correctly for the track, that was my thought process.. Im going to assume that by upgrading to these this is what im going to get, then when I get better ill upgrade again.
Also, it was never really answered if I can just do a direct swap or if anything else is needed, if anyone know please post...
I see your point, I guess I wont bother trying to upgrade to these then.
Now that brings up a new question, should I spend the 2k for the Nirton SA's or is it worth spending more to get something better and what would that something better be?
Thanks for all your help!
You'd be surprised. I have the Pro rate springs, but the ride is better than the base suspension was, even though the damping is not set all the way soft. Two different people riding in and driving my Elise have commented on it, so it's not just me.I have no reason to doubt the claims for the Nitrons, and people have said they can also be set to ride well on the street but they do run significantly higher spring rates, so I'm not sure they will be as compliant as the track pack set soft.
