Yes it is a little steep but it is a perfectly rated set. Will try to use it for street but dont think it will be suitable. Not sure about the maximum adjustment part.

You mean you paid 32k for something that you will use only on track? I sure hope you go to track every month!

The problem is that after lowering the car bottoms out on our outrageous speed breakers. Will use them on our roads and then decide what to do.

The lowered Swift looks just FANTASTIC. But, I wish it was practical too.
I simply love the lowered Swift with those 205 Yokos, she handles like a dream.
Pedders suspension cannot be compared to the Leda kind of race suspension setups. Through Pedders u get to the Street spec which is going halfway so that U dont knock ur teeth off on a rough road.

Arrow Lowdown on Pedders

Pedders shocks pricing depends on the type of shock you buy. There are 2 types of shocks on sale -- ComfortGas and SportsRyder. And 2 types of springs (i) Pedders SportsRyder (lowering) spring and (ii) Pedders Heavy duty spring (non lowering).

Farhan has 4 SportsRyder shocks working with stock springs on his Lancer and recommends such a setup -- because it stiffens up without reducing ground clearance.

I have a Pedders Heavy Duty set installed at the rear paired with stock corsa shocks. Pedders parts for the indian Corsa match exactly with the *1999 Holden Barina SB* shown here : Holden Barina Hatch - Pedders Suspension

Each spring is approx Rs.3k (that goes for whichever car you have).

I know its taken me ages , but got a couple of videos from my friend just yest :

1. RapidShare: 1-Click Webhosting

2. RapidShare: 1-Click Webhosting

3. RapidShare: 1-Click Webhosting

Ajit , im really sorry but my not so talented navigator at photography could capture only this of your car

4. RapidShare: 1-Click Webhosting

As you can see tyre choice is very important for track .. Car was undsteering during entry and oversteering through the corners .. All thanks to running 14'' in the front and 15'' at the rear .. Didnt have the time to do the swap to the 15'' in the front too ..

Arrow Video streaming >>>

In my opinion, you should try putting them up on YouTube - Broadcast Yourself. or Google Video so that the videos are streamed. Makes it easier for viewers not having to download the entire file(s) to view them.

I'd really like to take a peek, especially if you have SportsRyder (*lowering*) springs installed. A link should do too.
