LOL! Funny, because more is about to happen. So after many street tuning sessions and a few of maxing out 4th gear............yeah, long straight road about 130-140ish, and the car getting squirrelly, more things must be done. At 15-18psi and spooling at 2200 rpms the car is stupid quick, hooks great, but it's having issues staying straight. Mainly the right rear shock blew, and that's causing a weight transfer issue. It doesn't dart around, just like a slow drift that steering doesn't easily correct. So to fix this I have a set of Fortune Auto 500's ordered that should be here in 2-3 weeks, Hardrace upper control arms, new Moog problem solver front lower ball joints, new Koyo wheel bearings (sourced from Parts geek for $46 per bearing!), new lug studs, new rear brakes, etc. will be going on as soon as the coilovers arrive.bump cuz I want more...
Yeah. Running the wrong ones on the wagon (these are off an EK I think) and they were not a good brand to start with. They were free so I went with them. Once the Fortune Auto's are on though, problem solved. Weight transfer being off on the one rear wheel is what I believe is allowing the car to move around on its own. It isn't severe but you wouldn't want to go down a track with it trying to "dog walk".Any idea how you blew a shock?
using an old b7 tranny ..Also meant to ask, what gearing are you running and at what power level?
They are brand new Hard Race units. I am replacing the right rear trailing arm as well though. It doesn't look very great, so I'm going to replace it with a spare. One of the lips above the bushing is pulled out a bit. So I'm going to replace that for sure. But I definitely agree, Ive had a wishy washy car that needed RTA bushings in past. Not as severe as that, just like its leaning in the rear.That wierd drifting issue your feeling also sounds like a symptom of worn out RTA bushes. I'd replace those if you haven't already.
