Hi, my suspension is needing replaced and i thought why not see if i could put ZS suspension in her. Does anybody know if this is possible without too much work or if it has been done before. My Car is a Rover 420 SDI P reg
Cheers
James

The basics and easiest are the springs and dampers.
Then:
Revised top wishbone to change front geometry
Bigger anti roll bars
Harder bushes (I think)
"faster" steering rack

The front wishbones are easy - swap the left and right ones over - that's all MGR did!

nice

cool, cheers for all the info, so it should be fairly easy to do, will it make a lot of a difference to the handling of the car?


cheers James

dunno,.. i'd be interested to know how fast they r then? might be an interesting point to throw some figgers at him next time he says it.

He drives a 1.8 140bhp escort GTi btw.


i still think SDi sounds funny when he says it tho. :D

Power Output: 103 bhp
Torque: 210 Nm
Top Speed: 115 mph

simple tuning box ups the bhp to around 130 and as Emps says, you get a shed load more torque - it'll feel a damn sight quicker than his Escort anyway.

and what will that do to the 0-60 times?

must be said, the old torque is low on the 1.8 zetec(compared to rover anyway). His is developing a lowly 128 lbs/ft. Bhp is up a lot tho over the standered 115bhp. last RR came in at 144bhp. it dose shift. b interesting to find out if a 130bhp sdi 400 was quiker tho. anyone want to find out? i'm sure he'd be game.
