My Suspension Is WICKED !!

you know when people talk about suspensions and how you need $$$$ for handling

well I have KYB - GR2
and EVO II dual coilover kit from cosmoracing.com


at first I thought I was gonna bounce everywhere
installed them and they did not fit / grip the rear shocks

so I spoke with the company and they gave me a larger - longer rear sleeve set
that solved the height issue, because I was riding on shocks - the coils were not even compressed

so here's the setup

8 KG / MM 7" coil in the front with the secondary top coil for added stiffness

6 KG / mm 6" coil in the rear with longer sleeve and the secondary top coil as well

I am very impressed how stiff they ride
if you are planning on doing your suspension and wanna save money and still have a professional drop and not bounce .. get this

just an FYI - EIBACH and NEUSPEED use the same KG / MM ratio

pics coming soon

listen up
about the gr-2's I can get them free shipping to the states for 205 $$ shipped to your door

Im in canada and when I ordered, It cost 327$ CDN for everything ( shipping / UPS fee ) which is a steal cause for 4 gr-2's up here people wanted 500$ +

they are a good shock set, but if you want to play with adjusting it get AGX, I'm sure I can get for a wicked price - I could probably hook up a GB for people on here if they want

the contact I have is in el segundo ( spelling )

Nex kits are very good !!
they are just out of my price range this summer
had too much to pay for this summer
