Ha Ha, I finally won something!! I got you all beat. Shine racing only coilovers with 600 front and 400 rear. And I shamelessly endorse Mr. Shines products, professionalism and knowledge of our endearing VW cars.
Also wanted to clarify why this set-up won't work on a VW. Hondas and Acuras have the spring/coil over located only half-way down the length of the rear control arm reducing its "leverage" acting on the rear suspension, therefore it needs almost TWICE the rear spring rate as a VW to achieve about the same effective rate. Make sense to you?
Quote, originally posted by Stephane Trahan » All professionnaly race fwd cars in NA usually run a front to rear factor of 2-3 to 2-5 rate factor...my cars use 800f and 1200r...most acuras (realtime and all) range from 750f-1100r to 1000f to 3000r.
