Thats basically what they doDesigned to pre-load the front suspension which eliminates wheel hop and firmly plants the front tires to the pavement, maximizing traction potential during launch and reducing your 60ft time.
We have the Intrax 1 3/4" with the Koni adjustables with 17" Sean Hyland wheels, 205/40/17s on the car. It sits pretty low. After I got the side bars on last night, took it for a "spirited" drive with the recommended 3 turns out for the "street" setting. WOW, it handles sooo much better. Steering is much more precise, and although it handled well with our setup before the install, it really handles like its on a rail now.how would these handle on an every day driver? how low could your car be and not ground out on them?
Sorry Micheal, but I believe this setup can be used for both corners and straight lines.These are a "DRAG STRIP ONLY" Item.
When you install the setup, you need to leave it at the neutral or "no load" setting. Once you have it on the ground and have weight on the suspension, then you can turn the bars 2-3 turns out for "street" use, up to 6+ turns for "track" use. Basically, from what I read from the directions, is the setup changes the tow out on your tires, via "loading" the a-arm.what does it mean by "preload the suspension"
Of course in Straight-line racing, that's not too great a concern if your springs and dampers are right.The only thing I know for sure is that they will completely alter the geometry of movement for the control arm by yanking them forward against their bushings at compression or extension.
How you feel about the value of such bushing pressure is up to you.
