    Suspension tuning Rally...

    Can anyone suggest some suspension tuning?

    From stock I've wound the springs up quite a bit because I was bottoming out even on some relatively smooth tarmac. Now the car sits kinda high but i think the stiffer suspension helps a lot, stock it's too soft.

    Has anyone done any tuning on the suspension?

    I pulled a page from the Merv guys and swapped around the rockers. I'm running a set of rear rockers in the front to lower the front ride height and allow the use of stiffer springs to keep it from bottoming out. I also swapped to the HR multi-rate rockers. These allow you to fine tune ride height and the progressive rate of the rockers with different length rocker arms. I will try and post some picks of mine this weekend to show what I mean.

    Anyone having trouble with their shocks losing oil after a few runs?
