thaqnks gangsta, mrhardcore

m4u... u saw my gto at the expo completely lowered, its running the same coilover suspension, the only differnece is mine is a model lower than the cedia's and is one way adjustable on the bump... but the height can be kept from 1" above stock to 2" below... at full drop my car was about 3 " off the ground on the front bumper.

Ok Arush!!! So can these go on the swift??? If yes then whats the cost??? I also want this but i was always worried about the ground clearance factor.

One more thing how do we adjust this!! I mean like is there some switch which the driver can operate??? Or if it is set to a particular level i can adjust it again!!!!

Yeah thats the problem with lowering springs and adjustable shocks, the ride height will go down for sure... with the coilover u have the advantage of getting the right stiffness with the right height that you need. Ill pm u the details for the swift. cheers.

hey arush,so in effect tha means that when you lower the ride:increase the stiffness of the springs,so the tires dont touch the wheel well on a bump.am i right?

Hello all! thought id post a pic of what my ride looks like after the suspension upgrade, not only does it look low, huge advantage on the cornering and braking front also! Hooray for hotbits!

Hey Abix, congrats! Evilution is looking hot! One suggestion - lose the decals/stickers if you can... the car will look even better IMHO.

Could you provide some more feedback on the Hotbits? How hard have you pushed the car? Is the ride comfortable with the stiffened suspension? Have you faced issues of scraping the ground? Lots of questions, I know... but am pretty curious about the Hotbits

Hey razor4077, appreciate the suggestion... i really have started to understand the necessity of suspension systems and hotbits i feel provides some of the most versatile suspension kits. Driving experience wise, cornering is way more comfortable at high speeds with minimal body roll and straight line speeds feel more controlled. Best part is that its all adjustable in terms of rebound rate, height as well as stiffness. Mine is currently mid way stiff which feels comfy enough and the ride height is low enough to engulf the wheel arch. So far there have been no scraping issues, but obviously one has to maintain some decency while going over a speed breaker considering my ride height. Apart from all the possibilities its also easier on the pocket as opposed to Tein and Koni! hope this helps! Cheers!

That's a pretty comprehensive review... thanks! Keep us updated on the suspension - a mid to long term review is always helpful.
And would it be possible to share the prices of the Hotbits?
