Run of Suspension Numbers

Postby James » Fri Jul 20, 2012 7:32 am

Hey All,

I am running the numbers on doing a proper batch of suspension, so I need to know who would be seriously interested. Will be something like $1000-1500 without springs. They will be black zinc plated steel tubes for safety and simplicity. This means I can TIG weld the lower bungs in, instead of a complicated threaded seal. They will still be CNC machined. Fronts will be threaded or could have circlip grooves for slightly cheaper (please show preference). I could look at supplying adjustable platforms for the rear but that's another matter.

Koni Red, rebuildable wet inserts, never have to buy new shocks again!

Please only post if you are pretty certain, sorry I can't be more specific with the price, but after I have some rough numbers I will get a much firmer price.

Given all well delivery would likely be towards the end of the year, or the beginning of next year.

I know this has been a long time coming, but I have learnt a lot, and value my time much more now than when I started, so I will be making several changes to dramatically reduce the amount of time required from me fabricating little fiddly bits on my 70 year old lathe.
