  1. JDM Obsession added a post in a topic SPL Adjustable Upper Control Arm - Update   

    From SPL:

    The Z34 front camber links are not far off. The prototypes should be done this week, then we will give them to our world challenge team for testing. After we get the okay from them we will make a batch, if everything goes smooth this should take two months; A month for testing and a month for production time.

    Hey leeb8,

    I wouldn't be too worried.

    Out of all the Whiteline sway bars we have ever sold (heaps), only one had a fault and it was a batch issue.

    I've toured Whiteline's HQ on the Central Coast and they basically do everything in-house - design, test fit, test, and re-design if necessary. Once a prototype is finalised it is mass produced in Korea.

    If anyone that has purchased the bars from us has an issue please contact me directly and we can follow up with them. Definitely one advantage of purchasing from an authorised dealer. By the way, we haven't had any one contact us to say there has been a problem yet.

  3. JDM Obsession added a post in a topic What do you do for a job, what industry are you in ??   

    Not sure if I should be filling this out, but anyway!

    Industry : Retail/Wholesale - performance car parts for Japanese vehicles

    Position : Director, but the company is just me and another stakeholder so that isn't saying much!

    Length of service / experience : 3 years. Prior to this have had plenty of other roles including working for a research company.

    Extra Info : It's challenging and you definitely work hard when the margins are so low on just about everything, but it certainly is something that interests me! P.S. Don't get sick or take holidays haha

    Your rotors could be warped. Are they the OEM ones?

    You can use your stock links, think of them as an 'optional extra' which allows further adjustment.

    Hi guys,

    Just a quick update from SPL re: development for this part.

    The arms haven't been released yet. They had to re-design them slightly to allow for greater clearance and more camber adjustment. The prototypes should be finalised next week, then some more testing, then hopefully final release/production.

    We will keep you posted!

    SHAMELESS PLUG: As the sole authorised distributor for SPL Pro Suspension Parts in Australia, we can supply ANY SPL product at a price that will cost you no more than buying from the USA!

    Machining should be about $10-$25 per disc, and if someone is taking them off for you and putting them back on, factor in labour there too.

    The issue I find with machining is it is a band aid fix, and also removes a fair amount of thickness from the rotor. It doesn't really provide a longer term solution.

    Ronnie: who says you need bigger calipers?

    Your rotors are most likely warped, by the sounds of things.

    Project Mu SCR Rotors and Project Mu Pads are a great option for high end street/track cars. They are designed to withstand very high temperatures and are thus resistant to warping. Here's what Project Mu say:



    We are an authorised distributor for Project Mu. I notice you are in Brunei, we ship internationally too! Let me know via PM if you have any questions or would like pricing and availability.

    Fair enough. Maybe try a shop that deals with import or performance cars more often?

    Jason,

    One other brand I would recommend (admittedly I am a bit biased - we sell it) is MOTUL.

    Motul products are used by Nismo, Mugen, etc in their race cars.

    As a distributor we carry a decent range of their products. PM if you want any further information or pricing.

    Great post Jason!

    Do you mind if I chuck it in the thread in our forum?

    You are getting taken for a ride.

    Buy a set of springs which aren't Pedders (e.g. Eibach), buy a $30 spring compressor, and DIY fitment. Plenty of guides on Google for installation.

    Alternatively, buy a set of springs, and go to any decent workshop and they should be able to do it pretty cheaply.
  13. JDM Obsession added a post in a topic Lowering springs??   

    Eibach springs are a great option which will work well with the stock shock absorbers. Paired with quality shock absorbers (like Bilsteins), they truly are brilliant and will trump just about any Jap coilover that is under $3000 for durability and quality.

    We can supply Eibach springs, as well as Bilstein and Koni shock absorbers, at great prices. If anyone would like pricing and availability feel free to PM or email us.

    Also, some interesting food for thought on buying shock absorbers (not really about springs):

    Hi guys,

    First post here (apart from a couple in our trading section) - so allow me to introduce myself!

    My name is Peter and I am the Director of JDM Obsession Pty Ltd. We are a performance parts company based in Sydney. We are a little different from most in that we only sell quality brand parts only - definitely nothing fake or counterfeit!

    We have recently come on board as a sponsor because we are now branching out into performance parts for Z-chassis vehicles. We have been around since late 2009 supplying parts for mainly S and R-chassis cars and we are proud of our reputation and growth.

    We are the sole authorised distributor for SPL Pro Suspension Parts in Australia and as such can offer any part from the catalogue at a great price. We know that with such a good AUDvUSD exchange rate at the moment there is a temptation to buy 'directly from the source' - and why wouldn't you, if you can save money? To cut a long story short we have invested a lot of money with our friends at SPL in the USA and this means that our prices are not more expensive than buying from the USA. Further, most items are kept in stock with regular pallet shipments coming from the USA.

    As soon as we hear from SPL about this new product we will of course be getting some in so stay tuned!
