Re: Double Wishbone Front Suspension

Hi guys, sorry, havn't been on in a long time. The suspension is a one-off. I had it designed in Australia and built here. The ride is way better than stock, and the handling is 10 times better. The shocks are double-adjustable so it's just a matter of fiddling with the settings to get the ride you want. The brakes are Wilwood based on a custom hub from Vdub Engineering. I really don't know how much I spent, probably about $5K, but it was a lot of trial and error and a lot of extras like the hub that could have been done with Porsche stuff for less. Wheels are 17" up front 18" in rear. I have soft plans for a total redu utilizing Miata spindles that I think will make for absolutely no body mods and easier fabrication and installation.
