SPL SUSPENSION PARTS

talked to the owner of spl last week sean farrah about his new line of 6th gen suspension parts after he took his 1le out to cota last week for super lap battle ! parts look super nice , they are mostly known for nissan/import parts but trying to break into the domestic line starting here!

Apart from the claimed benefit of rear toe arms/eccentric lock out, what benefits do all the other parts have?

They look really nice but that's a hell of a premium over BMR.

I'd assume they're lighter as SPL uses aluminum and Ti hardware vs steel, but uffda.

I talked to Turner, who works there, for 40 minutes and I can verify that they definitely want to break into the Camaro market!

Most of the suspension stuff is over my head, but he seemed to focus a lot on geometry of the suspension, correcting role rate from a lowered car etc... and he says their stuff is motorsports grade, for what thatís worth

I was going to, and then when I totalled up the parts list it was about $4500

Plus I realized I really have no idea what Iím doing with suspension and so it would be unwise to go blow a whole bunch of money on it without knowing what Iím doing, let alone maximizing my driving skills to the catch-up with ability of the car as it is in its current form

Their rear toe links are very nice. Look to be top-quality parts/materials and easy adjustment.

Some of their other parts I can understand the offering, but in limited cases, like the adjustable front radius arm (they call it "Tension Rod"; GM calls "Ride Link") for caster adjustment and rear adjustable trailing arms for camber. The thing with some of this is that if you mess with one, you end up effecting other alignment specs (like camber+toe), so in end you end up needing all/most of the components (mostly speaking to the parts that move in more than one dimension).
