No worries Rusty, not going to be slammed
thats not a good look on any car..
Anyways i started looking at the suspension setup as the car handles like an old ferry at the moment.
I decided after some calculation that shorter lowering dampers from 100 C4 should be a good fit regarding spring height and work area.
However this is not a simple swap out old parts and in with new as the setup on C2 and C4 has alot of differences.
The C2 has a completly diffrent mounting solution, as expected since the springs is separate on the C2 compared to the C4.
Also holy! the stock part on the c2 dampers where the washer lays onto the bigger part of the suspension rod looks way to thin
Anyways i worked with the dampers and make the same smaller area on the c4 dampers that is on stock C2 dampers, however due to the thicker rod the part the the washer lays looks alot more secure and "heavy duty"
After that i cut down and modified the lower part of the damper to fit in the stock mounting points.
So lets look at the springs, its the same diameter on the C4, but they are infact longer even tho these are 40mm lowering spings, aswell as being progressive
So this should work with some minor modification.
After alot of measuring and cutting i got down to a height i was pleased with, lowered but not slammed and still very drive able.
Think this is going to work out great. The car a good amount of suspension travel both up and down and got alot stiffer without being like a rock.
It remains to swap out the front for the same kind of C4 setup, but from what i understand the C2 and C4 have the same setup in the front so it should be alot easier to fit.
Think i need to mby modify the springs a tiny bit to get the car 100% leveled but this is not much, mby 5-10mm
Anyways due to the shorter and more correct length of dampers the springs sits nice and secure and the travel is good within what they should be.
Going to be nice to test out the ride quality when i get the front done and the roads will get bare again, (Alot of snow here still...)
So far the test in the rear seems to have worked wonders, no more magic carpet ride
