Default Subaru Ohlins Suspension

We have some offers for Scoobynet Forum members on Ohlins coilovers for the Subaru models

Product Details
The Öhlins Road & Track suspension gives our customers a true racing experience, with their own cars, without losing comfort when commuting to work. Our unique Dual Flow Valve (DFV) technology allows you to quickly change the stiffness of the shock absorber. When arriving to the racetrack, just turn the golden **** clockwise on the damper to set it in race mode this action changes all four areas in the damper; low and high speed compression and rebound damping.

With Öhlins Road & Track coil overs you will experience a car with blistering response times, improved bump absorption and a massive amount of grip to increase the safety when driving your car on the limit. The car will be easier to balance on the edge of what the tires can handle before losing grip. You will be much quicker on track. The DFV suspension prevents you from losing the racing line when hitting bumps or curbs. The DFV components within react quickly and keeps you in control of the car and in contact with the track. When driving to and from the track, just set the dampers in road mode for a more relaxed and comfortable drive, still with more grip and quicker response time than ever before.

WRX STI 2015-2018 - £2040 inc VAT

I have 7 1/2 year old BC Racing coilovers - I'm not sure if the roads are even worse now than they were when I got the car - or whether the units are worse as they are getting older

Anyway - thinking that these might be a solution for my BP5 Legacy. Do you have any experience with them - are they really able to do a good job for rough and smooth roads/track?

Cheers

Mick

Hi Mick,

Personally i have no experience of Ohlins but from colleagues experience these are among the best road/track coilovers money can buy.

They are beautifully made and definitely worth the extra budget. Plus if and when you need them rebuilt there are shops across the UK that can do that.

Let me know if you need any more info...

Thanks

Why does the wheel PCD make a difference to the shock?

04-09 Legacy is 5x100 PCD on hubs too... They seem to have an option to fit that...

Because widetrack and non widetrack use different shocks

could have says blobeye sti non widetrack to save confusing you...

of course the stud pcd has no effect on the shock thats just a silly question.

as far as imprezas go, they are not available in 5x100 fitment or any newage or id even go to hassle of hub swap.

i should have been more clear.

OK thanks - makes sense - it's just I had seen reference to the wheel PCD in another thread on suspension and was somewhat confused when it was mentioned again.

I ran it for a week and JG came and picked it up the next weekend for a finishing fettle and check over. Backed off the damping a couple of notches... All feels fantastic now.

Just got my winter wheels back today with some nice Conti TS860s on - should be unstoppable now

Got some Tegiwa coilover socks to go on too when I do the wheel swap to keep the winter crud off those shiny Ohlins...
