So i found out that the springs were heated by previous owner :pale: , dealer has said that he will fit a Koenic suspension "FOC" for me, so theyre doing that today. Now before you say anything, I read up alot and i guess theres +- when it comes to these springs but its for free so i aint complaining

Other than that...no complaints on the PGti.. :thumright:

if your shocks are fine the ride can be good...but depending on the road surface they tend to be a bit hard - and considering that you have 17's i think that ride will be a bit harder than most.... i got 16's with a low profile side wall and it's hard for most times. :twisted:

but hey it's for free so who's complaining :lol:


:scratch: maybe i should also have my springs heated a bit to give em a lekker slam :D

Yeah, not complaining at all....what are they priced at and do they have a guarantee too?

Does heating them not drop their strength?

I remember i paid about 1100 for springs and fitment and alignment (special) - the reason why i bought it.

i remember i was doing some research about compressing springs...and they relatively cheap to do - but because of the amount of rebounding the spring takes - you could snap it, or the metal becomes brittle and you have a saggy drop on 1 side.

Koenic will suit ur needs fine for now - unless you wanna go standard drop which is 4x4

Yeah, Koenic better than cut or heated springs so they have my vote of confidence :salut:

you can see from my side the gap between my tyres and fender...and this is with 16's - with 17's you could possibly achieve the same look you have now but with "safer" springs!

i noggals smaak 17's but power to weight ratio... then again tyres for 16's is expensive :(

Yours looks good, with 17s itll "look" lower and theres enough power so not like you gonna lose alot :scratch:

Its not so much power but looks im going for.....Power costs money and a little reliability

So had the Koenic kit fitted and the drive aint all that bad hey, drives like its on a normal suspension :scratch: doesnt look dropped at all, not as low as the car was previously but thats what heated springs will do for you. Other than that, all good....
