Hey all, we just installed our first set of US-spec coilovers on our 500. We're still doing some minor tweaking but it looks like we're just about done. Just need some OEM parts from the dealer (we left our stock suspension with the manufacturer in Europe) and we're off to the track for some shakedown runs.

I hate cel phone pics but couldn't resist posting a pic of our 500 lowered. Our cars look soooo much nicer when lowered!





We're also working on 2" drop springs :cool:

exactly what he asked. how soon should we expect a release on these? and what range of lowering are these capable of?

Some info:
This is a street oriented coilover. The ride was designed to be firmer but still comfortable. It's perfect for the daily driver/weekend track warrior. If you're familiar with the typical Eibach coilovers, these are considerably more comfortable.

We're still working on getting the rear perfectly. There is very little suspension travel back there. As it is they're probably a 2-2.5" drop which we might increase slightly after some testing this week. The front, well... how slammed do you dare to go? :D

Once we place the order (which could be as early as this Tuesday) the worst part would be the ocean shipping which takes 15-20 days, so figure in about a month they should be available to our customers, possibly earlier.

We'll tell you about the manufacturer and everything else as soon as we iron out some distribution details. They're a popular brand, made in Europe, great quality, and probably the best bang-for-the-buck out there. Expect them to be around $700 for the set. If there is enough interest we can order them with damping adjustable struts (18 settings) for only a couple hundred dollars more.

Keep you posted!

I am also interested in these. Sound nice for the price.

Can you adjust the front and rear to the lowest setting and take a pic?

Looks fantastic! Can't wait to hear more info on these. I've been waiting for a full suspension set-up and the price seems good.

I was pretty sure about this, thanks for confirming...not a particularly good set in any event.

Megan's are built in Asia.

Popular european companies include of course Bilstein, Vogtland, KYB, Bosch, among others.

Would be stellar if this is a Bilstein kit :eek: :D :) :cool:
