  • s14 suspension

    Well I have a budget of $500 to replace my my rucas, tension,traction and toe arms on my s14. Long story short I have found that the only items that will fit in my budget are godspeed, isis, or circut sports.

    My question is which brand is best or are they all off the same line in china. I know everyone is going to say just save up and buy spl, but I am limiting how much I can spend period. I read that the isis is a standard thread so that i could get better joints on later.

    help or direction would be appreciated.

    Of the 3 ISIS for the fact that you stated. Better ends can be put on later.
    But as far as they go there all pretty much the same.

      i was able to get some older generation PBM arms when they went on clearance for about 120 each. if you're willing to wait they sometimes go on sale when their next gen line comes through.

      Of the 3 choices above, i'd probably choose ISIS because they seem to be the most widely supported now.

        Are the Isis heims standard thread? If so, that would make for a super budget baller upgrade for me....

          May be just out of your price range, but worth looking at the Fortune Auto S-Chassis Suspension Parts.

          More info on them here as well.

            None, I'd rather ride on stock arms until I could afford better parts
            Peak Performance or SPL
            both US companies that use quality pieces and not Taiwan/China re-branded garbage

            and why is this place turning into zilvia as of late?

              I think everyone WANTS to have top-end parts on their cars, but very few can actually afford it. I agree, though, suspension is one place you do not want to skimp if you're truly going to race.

              At least I don't see any "hellaflush" or stretch threads on here.. ugh...

                yet...

                and no, I'm not made of money
                my cars won't me making any magazine covers anytime soon if ever
                I actually put off buying parts I want because I have real life responsabilities
                (I say want because 99% of the time that's what it is: stuff we want and not need)

                just look at my sig

                  Mano you did not read my thread. I can afford anything I want. I just set a budget. I am not a pro so I do t need pro parts. I tracked my s13 8 times in last 2 years on trash suspension and i never had a failure. Jackstand racers like you make this place more like zilvia than cheap people like my self.

                      yeah...

                      Mano is the epitome of saving to buy once rather than buying 3 times.

                      and he has a good point on the suspension pieces.

                      do you really need RUCA's, Traction, Tension, and Toe arms???

                      I would bet you probably "need" Rucas maybe Toe arms...if you are too low already...

                      don't replace parts without necessity, if you only need 2 sets of arms the parts can be of higher quality for the same budget...and the OEM stuff ain't gonna fail you

                          op - you asked for advice and I gave you the best one I could
                          you ask NRR to help you select the best pile of **** out of three
                          seems like you had already made your mind up before even starting the thread
                          so were you just looking for validation? why bother?

                          jackstand racer?
                          if that's what you call a guy with a well sorted out daily, power aside, and a decent project car than I'll take it as a complement
                          thanks

                            Well I'm going to get out of the way of what this thread will likely turn into, just wanted to clarify I wasn't making any comments towards your build, ManoNegra. I was just making a statement that the majority want to, but don't have means. I have no clue what your means are and it's none of my business. ;-)

                              Cutter, at 6 posts (mostly on this thread) you are far from familiar with everyone else here. those kind of comments without establishing yourself in this community will gain you nothing. these are adults who know theyre stuff and can be a huge asset to you if you show respect. bringing a zilvia attitude into this forum is probably the quickest way to alienate yourself. so, calm down and be here to learn instead of fight.

                              Tower, you should prolly set a better example than that response. ...ive never seen you get that mad at a noob. gooose fra bahhh.

                              ...that aside, my circuit sports seem to be holding up just fine. but, i agree with tower, what do you really need and why?
