    Uh... Interesting to hear that about KTS I believe it. Sorry I meant what bushing have you done. Like have you done the bushing to the LCAs? That one of the next things on my list of things to do.

    I just did a auto-x this pass weekend and i keep having the same problem with my weight transfer and speed. Our auto-x are lower speed course so I have to try a lil with some turns and stuff...

    After listening to what you have done I'm going to try out what 7k/6k feels like for now. I'm already using 8k/7k.
    Sorry if I'm being a bug but I'm really interested with your setup.

    Valving is left untouched. The shocks seem to like the softer springs. They ride nice and when I want to go fast I turn the damping up a bit and it works awesome. I dont know what you mean by only upright bushings? I'm running stock S14 uprights so I dont have a shock mount bushing

    -2.5camber up front, zero toe, 7* castor
    -2 camber out back, zero toe

    I have fender braces and a strut bar that I made but no Nismo front brace. Never bothered with it because I like how the car turns in already.

    Hm... Are you using a custom valve KTS? or just stock valving?
    What's are your alignment spec?
    Wait so you only have your upright bushing done?

    Do you have a Nismo front brace or something along those lines?
    I'm just curious about how are you car turn-in's I know i have a small problem with my setup but that's my bushing and alignment...

    KTS coil-overs
    6kgmm front springs
    4.5kgmm rear springs
    All SPL arms
    Spherical upright bushings
    Progress front sway bar
    Stock rear with bushing kit
    Thats all there is to it.

    Softer springs ride nicer and make the car more controlled when going over rough surfaces because its not bouncing all over the place. I think its an awesome set up for the street and the track if your on street tires.

    I'd like to learn more about your S14 suspension setup. I've been thing of doing something like that with my car for a LONG time now. Big sways and soft springs.
