  1. Parts For Sale / Wanted
    I have a set of very lightly used Bilstein coilovers from my Mk3. I switched to Koni's last year, so the Bilsteins are just sitting. They have about 1000 miles on them. As far as I know these coilovers were not part of the recall, but I would recommend the buyer double check that before...

  3. Brake and Suspension Tech
    Does anyone know where the difference is in width for the Pin Drive vs. Standard IRS? I am wondering if they leave the control arms at the same length and narrow the cradle or if they leave the cradle the same but have shorter control arms. I don't have a FF car (yet), but I really like the...

I was going to wait until this fall to upgrade to coil overs but the car really is not driveable as it is now. So I'm...
  7. Brake and Suspension Tech
    From discussion on another thread (http://www.ffcars.com/forums/showthread.php?p=1871126#post1871126), it seems that some people have noticed the very limited rear suspension travel on pin-drive IRS cars, depending on what shocks are used. The problem lies with the design of the pin-drive lower...
  8. Factory Five GTM Forum
    Has anyone driven a GTM and Roadster on back roads and how do they compare? I am trying to decide what to build. Any comments? Does anyone have any close-up photos of the GTM suspension/frame. I called FF and they had those on their website that don't give much detail. Thanks, Scrivy
