Remarks

A customer approached us because he heard a worrying sound from his chassis and felt a lack of sharpness. After we sat next to the customer while he drove, so we could experience the problems, we were able to pin point these problems and advise him a solution. As he was impressed with our enthusiasm and skills he asked to do some upgrades to improve his car instead of just fixing the problems with standard parts.

We replaced the rubber in the front sub frame with polyurethane rubber that we developed together with Whiteline. These KCPerformance bushings were installed in the sub frame and fitted back on the car. We also replaced 2 front wheel bearings.

In the rear we fitted Powerflex rubbers in the sub frame, installed a Whiteline sway bar and replaced the ball joints. All these upgrades resulted in a chassis without any worrying vibrations or sounds. On top of that there was more feedback to the driver and very tight cornering abilities were possible without feeling too bouncy on the road.

To top it off we installed 4 Bilstein B8 shock absorbers with an Eibach ProKit 30mm lowering set. During this process we also fitted new top bearings.

The car was now ready to be delivered as a new and improved version of the car that he dropped off. His chassis problems were solved and his car now has utterly crisp handling in combination with a nice lowering. The perfect balance between luxury and playfulness: A summum!
