Shoes are my lawn mowing shoes and I had just mowed the lawn and washed the car, pretty stylish


Damn, very sexy. What are the spring rates of these teins? How much did tein coilovers set cost you in kiwi $ and how much is the EDFC only? Engine bay looks really clean. I like.

Sorry if this is out of topic, but you need to clean your shoes or at least buy a new pair if you could afford those bracers in your car. (nana)

That's a decent price for the set + EDFC. I used to have a set of HKS street performers on my prev car with similar spring rates, however I didn't have the luxury to adjust the dampening force in-cabin.

Did you have H&R installed previously? How did the H&R stiffness compare to the tein coilovers?

Price was super affordable compared to the nasty BC and other yellow speed + Chinese knockoffs


Ride quality is similar to H&R, quite comfortable even if its a bit firmer, the adjustability is nice there isn't a dramatic difference in ride on normal paved highway but at speed or on uneven surfaces the soft setting is a lot more forgiving and not as sharp for cornering, on full hard its almost as comfortable but you do have a lot more cornering ability and far less body roll

ITs a winner all around and so affordable just do it.

If I remember well, this one is not adjustable on the car, the adjustable end will have to be removed, to be able to adjust it. It doesn't have a left and right thread in there.

As requested a pic of what we changed,

Essentially the engineer took a solid bar of steel and milled out the centre so it could slide over the original bar as a sleeve then welded them together , then drilled and tapped the thread at the end for the end bush to screw into, its very solid and appears to work.

Those will break. There is no support.

Anybody who attempts to modify these arms in a similar manner is asking for trouble and putting all occupants of the vehicle at serious risk. Don't be foolish.

Not sure what you mean no support (where?). He had it cut and welded pretty far down on the arm, the only issue I see now is that the lever is longer. However I am not an engineer so any input helps. I am asking the shop tomorrow about other solutions to this issue, because I pretty much went in and asked them to make that. I am suggesting a long sleeve with a bolt on the bottom to go where the original was but I don't know if they have tooling to make something like that. Otherwise I don't know and OTS solution to this and oddly I can't even find such a part for import (even though there are like 15-20 sets of JP coilovers and lowering springs). I heard about camber bolts but Not sure how to apply it. Is it as simple as getting a camber bolt with the same specification as the OEM bolt?

I may just try these and see what they produce (also a lot cheaper than having the arm modified), see what camber I get out of them. If they do OK I'll just resell the m6 arm. The rear upper arm is a 17mm bolt as well and these seem the correct length. http://www.ebay.com/itm/KCA417-Whiteline-17mm-Adjustable-Camber-Bolt-Set-2-bolts-/231066007895 (or this http://www.jegs.com/i/Specialty-Products/827/81290/10002/-1?parentProductId=755158) So it looks like (from videos I could find on the topic) These seem to be made for struts though.

This site actually has the cx-5 listed, but front only. http://powerflexusa.com/poweralign.aspx



I'm double checking the length with the seller

Actually, those are for struts... I don't see any camber bolts for the type of rear suspension we have, only arms.
