Sc430 Handling

Recommended Posts

My local dealer has just fitted a set of Dunlop Sp9000s to my SC (previously SP2030s) and that slight wandering "dead-ahead" feeling has returned.

Apart from another tyre change, what do you steering & suspension experts think a permanent fix is likely to need?

Goodyear Eagle F1s work very well on Lex, that's what I run.

Camber setup by a professional track/rally mechanic is essential.

You could try Eibach lowering springs or Bilstein shocks. I like the PSS Bilstein suspension kit but it's 1500 quid.

You can see some handling from the lowered springs in the movies section at :

B) I sprang for the PSS by Bilstein; $899 from eshocks.com. The handling is awesome but the ride is really stiff. If soft ride quality is a concern, I'd go a different direction.

Hmmmm, interesting.

Not looking to soften or harden the ride, just want to get that IS-like feedback through the steering system instead of the very light touch you get with the standard SC kit.
