Yeah Phil but most of actually use the brake pedal rather that shouting out "piss off you idiot"

 :D

If you saw me drive, you'd realise how amazing it is.

I use the brakes quite hard really. Just can't wear em out. Still about half worn, only.

I'm a very calm driver. I just pass the idiots and move along nowadays. They don't phase me, much.

The mighty MegaGetz, now with koni adjustables....

Absolutely transformed the pitchy ride, to a "i think I'm Chris Atkinson" tarmac rally car....

Plus, my choice of music for the 1700km road trip to Bathurst and back....

But did you do the front?

Not yet, but I do have them ready to install.

Wanted to test rears only first.

I have lower stiffer front springs, and the damping is not too bad even with those. But the rear shocks were soft even with the std springs. When I fitted the lower stiffer rear springs, it was way too pitchy, so I went back to std rear.

Now, with std rear springs but koni shox, it rides smoothly, but I can now "just" feel the need for the front koni to go in.

Bit it's really nice as it is still.

Once I put the front koni in, I'll then see if I need/want the stiff low rear springs back in, but I doubt it.

Yes I have noticed with SWB thingo's I have owned over the years that they can pitch like mad if stiff. They seem to need it a bit softer than longer wheel base vehicles.
I remember my girlfriend had a Corolla wagon and we would go along the Brisbane freeway and it picthed so much we looked like a couple of head-bangers listening to AC/DC if viewed from alongside.

Ride control and comfort comes more from the rear. So... Soft springs, stiff shocks.

That's where the 348 went wrong.

Makes for less understeer on the limit though. That's where the 348 got it right.
