    Suspension HELP...

    Well I have been doing a lot of research into rebuilding the entire suspension on my 01 TA. I think I have finally settled on Spohn suspension parts with a few questions for anyone who would like to put there .02 in. The first thing I couldn't settle on was a spring/ shock combo. Im looking for a good setup for off the line traction at the same time I want to be able to auto x the car. (keep in mind the car will be a twin turbo set up). Another question was what do you think of solid Spohn motor mounts? And last but not least anyone know where I can get a caliper rebuild kit for the stock calipers or good replacement calipers that aren't $$$. Thanks for your input in advance.

    How much you want for the stock calipers? Are they all in working condition? And is the LCA double adjustable? and cromoly?

    Well I just talked to the shop F-BodyCentral where I have her and they said that the drivers side LCA got bent. That is where the impact was right in front of the rear tire. They said the calipers look fine. I'm not sure what they are worth, they said prob $50 each, whats your thought on it?

    Do you have WS6 wheels? 17x9? I kinda need to know if all calipers work well before i buy them otherwise it would be pointless to buy something I already have ya know.

    Of all the cars I rode in to figure out the springs i wanted, I though the Strano were the best. The drop wasn't too much, so no bad scrape issues and it handled well , and rode good for a lowered car. I Eibach pro kit car I rode in wasn't bad but the drop didn't seem as even, guy told be it actually wen't about 1/4 inch lower that it said on the info.
    Both had bilstein shocks. I acktually like KYB's better since there adjustable.
    I plan to do the strano with KYB AGX.
    I have UMI Double adj. panhard and LCA's. They were on sale so it made them a lot cheaper than the Spohn I originally was going to get.

    all 4 calipers worked great before the accident none were harmed in the accident. I will ask them if there is a way that they can test them.
