Thats about it..don't forget the beerIs replacing a set of coilovers as simple as jacking up the car, unbolting the unit from the lower wishbone and top mount and then replace with new coilovers and torque the bolts to 45 NM? Should we use some blue threadlocker? Am I missing any steps? I know an alignment and corner weighting should be done afterward.
I thought so, too. So which are different between the touring and the Sport (sorry, couldn't resist), the shocks or the springs or both? I've seen many posts about changing these, but which new shocks seem to be the best? I'd like something adjustable. And at what cost both for the purchase and the installation?Just for the record, the car has "coilovers" already. All Elise shock/springs are coilovers.
:thwack: - You asked for it.I thought so, too. So which are different between the touring and the Sport (sorry, couldn't resist), the shocks or the springs or both?
On the sport shocks, there are two grooves. They're hidden by the spring perch.While on this thread, how difficult is it to adjust the height on the LSS equipped suspension? The last time I had my car off the ground (full detail while getting new tires) I couldn't see any place where the brackets would move. I know it's not a threaded one, so I was expecting to see grooves where it could mount into. It would be nice not to have to crab it up my driveway every day.
Btw, any links with pics? A short search didn't show any, just all the aftermarket ones.
Hence my use of quotes around "upgrade" - besides, the Sport Pack and Track Pack setup is not after-market...:thwack:
"Upgrade" is a subjective term. The only acceptable adjective is "after-market."
No, I never have to allow the misuse of "touring" as acceptable slang. Never. :no:Otherwise you have to allow the misuse of "touring" as acceptable slang.
