I've got the same setup here on my car without the camber kit- no complaints either. My g/fs teg however has the stock shocks with Skunk 2 coilovers. She hasn't had any problems over the past year with her setup either.dennis2 on Mar/21/04 said:i have the same set up also skunk2 and illuminas and a skunk2 camber kit as well. i have no complaint so far
illuminas are ok with skunk2, but i think koni yellows are betterjair-vtec-gsr on Mar/21/04 said:i have skunk 2 waiting to be installed, but will tokico illuminas handle the stiiffness on coilovers? or should i save more to get the koni yellows?
now now lenguaso...the search function is very very complicated.lenguaso on Mar/25/04 said:so you want coilover sleeves? When you wanna go real coilovers look around, there are alot better choices out there.
BTW this subject has been discussed once or twice or 200 times. But I wouldn't know unless i'd have searched.
The spring rate is 500/400. Nowhere near 700. And adding more weight is not going to make the car handle better. It will help with high speed stability, but not turning.ldvknight on Mar/25/04 said:I've got Skunk2 coilovers and illiminias on my GSR sedan and I think that the skunk2's are too stiff compared to the stock springs. I believe that the skunk2 are just about the stiffest coilover sleeves out there. (about 700lb rating)
I say that the springs are too stiff because the car feels too light to put enough weight on the springs to make it feel grounded or balanced...when I've got 3 more passengers in the car (more weight), the handling balance is very much better, then the car really feels planted to the road.
If I had to do it over again, i'd go with the softer ground control sleeves (which I believe is about 450lb rating) with koni shocks. The ground controls are almost twice the stiffness of the stock 250lb rate and thats all u really need for street use.
