So I rebuilt the front end of the Mach1 so everything was new and strengthened the lower control arms when I rebuilt the car a year and a half ago. The plan was always to do Mike Maier Inc front suspension when I could afford it.

Well sometimes you just get stuff even though you can't afford to.....but at least I'm sticking to the plan:)

Heres some pics:

Pic of one side set up. the unpainted upper control arm is for display at Custom Cars and Coffee for the AWOL Protouring stand, the real ones going on the car are powder coated, pretty much the same colour as the engine and the rest of the little bits and pieces.



The JRI single adjustable coilovers are a Mike Maier Inc special valving internals and ooze quality






Can't wait to try them at the next ApocaLaps Autocross here in Perth

If I was designed upper arms I would have a left and right one as well.
Nice set up.


I will someday think of something clever to say.

Those are partially alloy - strut rod and front mount? Should be bit lighter than street or track setup with bit of weight shaved off lower arm design and rear strut rod mounting detail.

Hi Trav

Yeah the strut rod is alloy, with left and right hand threads.

I'll weigh everything when I do the swap and document it to the inth degree. Won't be till I come back from work next time though

We'll be at the WA Hot Show on the weekend, If anyone is heading down and wants to have a look, I'll throw them in the back of the daily if there is interest.
