for reference here is HKS' development timeline. ECU Tuner and a drop in turbo kit are on the way!
The car looks significantly lowered. Going over some bumps and uneven-ness, it almost looks like its going to bottom-out. This is one of the mods I'd definitely like to do, but I wonder how much you could lower it before it starts to interfere with daily drivability?
Looks fine to me. Perfect stance. I wouldn't go any lower than that though
I agree it looks great, but how will it be over the winter-fied roads of northern states and Canada, that warp and buckle and pot-hole due to frost and snow-plow damage?
On the MKIV, HKS coilovers tend to have softer spring rates. I wouldn't be surprised if it also ported to the MKV.
Softer than what? The SP are 14kg/9kg and the GT are much firmer.
Stock is 6/4 iirc?
The SP are a fantastic ride though, the damping is wonderful
Do the stock shocks come with those threads for the aftermarket HKS height adjustment rings?
My bad, I just look them up. They finally upgraded them on the current model. The previous versions had softer springs.
I just finished installing my new Swift Springs on my HKS Hipermax Performers (essentially JDM Hipermax III). They completely transformed the car. Less sway, much more confident handling, and also a bit more comfortable ride despite higher spring rates. I went with 14K front and 8K rear Swift Springs, compared to the HKS Stock rates of 12K front and 7K rear. Infact, in the HKS install manual, it actually states to upgrade the springs to 14K/8K for more "spirited" driving. For those with HKS Coilovers who want to upgrade their coilovers, definitely consider upgrading the springs to Swift Springs...makes a huge difference!...Darshana S...
No, the kit adds that.
I upgraded from the hipermax II to the hipermax IV GT and they are a seriously nice bit of work. The struts themselves are sleeved so you don'ty have to adjust spring preload to adjust ride height.
Such a nice way of doing it. My 180sx has new BC coilovers that are this way too, adjusting them without affecting preload is great. Wish my MKIV Supra Teins were that way, but those are very old now
