Wow you've done a lot, well impressed! Fancy setting mine up? Lol alsoto your problem of pulling to the left, did it get a lot better with the slip diff, just that when driving, one side of the diff is heavier due to the longer driveshaft, which could take more to turn and unbalancing the drive to the wheels in a simular way to having a sticky brake pad, just a theroy, back to the topic, going to have to look around for the kit I guess and see what's really out there, any one know Japanese as you could search jap ebay ;) ha ha I've tryed and failed as it's all symbles :( but I thought was a good try, going to look at some old mags I've collected over the years and see if some of the jap ones have any contacts to Japan! And if the postal costs don't out weigh the savings then we may have a winner but the track spec I'd prefer as I'm not into how low can you go, sorry for the essay :)

Unless you are very lucky, anything from Japan will cost you a pretty penny when you add up all the costs to get it to your door.

An old used, rusty pair of coilovers shipped from Japan will likely cost more than a new set from within the UK.
 
Just a thought as they may be a bigger market to modify them over there meaning there would be more parts avaliable, like Vw in Germany or ford in america or tho I do know you'd have to weigh up postage and exchange rate
 
Well that would bein the postage and the customs fee I'm sure is 20% of the price you payed, its a lot of pissing about but if there's nuff in what you save will be worth it I guess but also that apply to brande new, 2nd hand iis different, only apply to certain items I think
 

Quick question about the BCs can you get the Top Mounts sepereatley as I ordered some Gaz coilovers went direct and were £470, have to wait around 2-3 weeks for them to be made. I asked if they came with adjustable Camber Top mounts but the guy said they didn't do them so was going to use the BC top mounts instead.

Easiest way to get an answer to your question would be to give Be a ring :) they do stock spares though so I'd of thought you could get top mounts pal
 
Wouldnt wanna go that low personaly. I like around 40mm. Dont like it when the arches look like there eating the top of the tyre. Just a nice little stance :)

I spoke to the guys at Lowerks who sell the FK kits for £439, but apprentley they have discountinued them when I spoke to Gaz to find out if they made a kit which they said they were unsure about they said yes they did and then came back with £470, so for an extra £40 I thought it was worth it and you can specify your own spring rates too.
