PagParts (Simply the Best)
Got my extra set of racelands pulled apart
Lucky for me.. I found a cheap gland nut wrench that was just the right size in my tools!
Measured the insert, the diameter is 1.625" on the regular racelands. Im trying to find an insert that will work so it doesnt have to be spaced out. the Koni 8610 inserts wont work because they are to big. It looks like MR2 strut inserts are the same size, just gotta find one that works with my set up. Will update once I find something that works.
I might have to look into these inserts, @ $400 a pair this might be the way to go for me.... Wonder how they would fit in my exsisting Koni Coil Bodies.. Both inserts are toast!
I called and Emailed Koni and nobody ever gets back to me...
I had also contacted Vogtland and they want $400 a piece for new bodies and all!! Freaking crazy!!
but this answer from Vogtland took me almost 2 months to get... got someone who actaully knew who to contact up there and give me an answer finally!!
I am only looking to replace the insert in my exsisting Coilovers and could never find anything helpful...
my exsiting set up now is Vogtland Coils, (Which is Koni bodies F/R) on Vogtland springs, love the way they ride but not since the fronts are toast! Thank you NY rds!!
Yeah that is what I might have to do.. Just @ the moment I dont have much time to do anything...
I noticed all the diam. are the same on the inserts on Summits site, so thats helpful.. I might rough it for now and measure the bodies.. it might give me an idea of what insert would fit best...
nice thread BTW!! you might have saved me a few hundred bucks! I really didnt want to buy a new set of coils! lol
This is an amazing discussion and have been looking for a better ride quality than just my current Ultimos. Having some adjustable dampening would be money on the bumpy country roads I currently live on.
One more question: would the inserts limit the amount of drop I'd be able to do without blowing it, or should the inserts be able to handle the amount of drop the Ultimo springs/struts can offer?
