Hey all,
At the moment there is a group buy over on Perth-WRX for a set of the Gtworx Bilstein & RCE suspension combo.
While this is limited to people within W.A at the moment, if there is enough interest we might be able to have some sent to the eastern states at the GB prices.


Looking for a suspension setup for your boat ?
Troy from PSR has offered us a minimum 5 buy of these Racecomp Engineering Bilstein Yellows + a set of Springs for a price of $1690 inc to one location here in WA.
http://www.prospeedracing.com.au/products/Racecomp-Engineering-Bilstein-Yellows-suit-MY08%252dMY11-WRX-.html
These have a RRP of $2490 and he normally sells them for $1890 + postage, but in a minimum 5 buy we can get them here to WA for $1690 all posted.
For those who don't want coilovers for their car, these an awesome piece of gear. If you want to google them or find reviews, there are heaps out there on the internet.

There is a bit of reading, but the feedback has been quite good so far.
We also have a couple of people driving around Perth and their feedback has been quite good (considering some of the crappy roads we have over here).

Can look into the freight costs from Perth to the eastern states, or splitting up freight into two locations, will report back once I have some info ;D

Managed to get 5 people in for the group buy, deposits paid and the waiting game begins!


Will try and get some sort of review or comparison to the stock suspension when they have been bedded in a bit.
Really looking forward to getting these installed ;D

Work Soksta, keen to see how this plays out.


Any upgrade is good, but will be interesting to see what you think of them.


When you thinking of getting them installed?

They will be getting installed on the weekend that they arrive, which will be sometime in April or May.


Took a members car* for a drive yesterday with one of the people involved in the group buy, let me say that I was extremely impressed.
Having driven 20 odd thousand km with a set of coilovers, I was worried that they would be as bouncy or would skip around the road.
However these just ate up the bumps, they were very smooth at high speed, e.g. 60km/h, and you could feel some of the bumps at lower speeds.
Turn in was equally impressive, I couldn't really detect any hit of body roll at all, I assume this could be due to the other handling modifications found on the car.
The back of the car (e.g. the rear seat that I was sitting in) felt the bumps more than in the front, something to note.


Looking forward to getting out onto the skid pan with these in the car!


* Car had the following modifications, whiteline 24mm front sway bar, whiteline 22mm rear sway bar, whiteline anti lift kit, whiteline steering rack bushes, GTworx suspension and some sort of alignment.

Unfortunately the ship has sailed, deposits have been paid and now the waiting game has begun.
Should be seeing these hitting the west coast sometime towards the end of May.

They can still be purchased through Troy at ProSpeedRacing.

No chance Beau!
I knew these would be good, but after that test drive of Mikes car, there is no way there are ever coming off (unless they need to be rebuilt)!

Another group buy for the GTWorx kit has come up again.
Currently have 6 people which means we meet the minimum number required to get it off the ground.


Group buy will be opened until the end of December or possibly as late as the end of January.
If there is some interest here from a few users, I'll see if shipping of the kit can be split (e.g. Perth and eastern states some where).


Still waiting on pricing from the group buy vendor, will post again when I have some solid information and pricing.
