been trolling through web pages and im more confused than ever now. does putting the xu10 motor in a 205 affect the ride height or handling? do i need to compensate for the extra weight over the wheels in some way? in the end i want the car to sit around 30mm lower in the front and close to std, maybe slightly lower in the rear and try and retain the std handling.
i need to replace my front struts as the are stuffed. i have some good gti6 shocks to go on the rear and the beam will be rebuilt std spec with possibly a mount kit from adrian . can anyone point me in the right direction for a setup in the front
its not going to see any trackwork, i just want a nice baseline setup to get me by, then i can improve it later if need be.
at this stage im thinking billies of some sort with either reset std springs or Eibachs? approx 30mm lower. the extra 20lb/" rate over the std springs in the eibachs might compensate for the xu10 weight and balance out things better? not sure which bilstiens yet? any suggestions
