My Ohlins dampers have finally landed, but before I fit them I wanted to discuss suspension set up. I am not interested in "slamming" the car or even in lowering it at all IF the ideal ride height is the OEM set-up.
I don't want to induce any bump steer, so I know that to avoid that, I should not lower the car anymore than 20mm on the rear, which I guess to keep the OEM 15mm rake means lowering the front by the same amount.
I have purchased some 10k rear (Eibach) springs and will be setting these up with the recommended 10mm preload, which by it's very nature reduces the available drop from the factory 14" to a maximum reduction of 13.375" (according to SBK's figures). However, I am more than happy to stick at factory ride height IF this gives the best bump curve.
So with that in mind, has anyone actually gone to the lengths of mapping the bump curve to see what the optimal ride height setting would be? Handling is far more important than looks to me.
I suspect this info is readily available on the S2ki forum, but it would be good to have a discussion here as well (plus saves me all that trawling if someone remembers seeing this info and can help me out ).
