    Default Coilover parts - local?

    Hey guys,

    looking into building my own coilovers, as they are not made for my car.

    I need things like

    ID Springs
    Coilover nuts
    Takeup springs
    Coil spring floater
    and such

    Any place in calgary that has these???

    Im attempting to follow something similar to this:

    I doubt it... what about starting with a weld on kit like this?

    Or maybe see if @gretz can cnc some components and just order some swift springs to spec?

    What is the car?

    What car? I have a pair of generic coilovers you could use as a starting point. QA1 should have all the parts you need to build from scratch, not local obviously.

    yea, the guys on my board have had to make our own coilovers.

    Its for my Turbo Beretta z26, the lowering springs dont give me enough low.

    techno toy tuning is where the guys got most of the parts, but not in a kit like that.

    Swift Springs in the USA can do custom spring setups and rates I believe.

    I didn't know much about them until my buddy started rambling on about his with the quad 4 and chip etc. I swear the interior looks identical to my 97 Camaro They were a kickass performance car for their day, and the quad 4 sounds awesome with an exhaust.

    The quads are pretty crazy engines, ive owned 5 berettas, none with a quad though.

    Mine was 3.1 auto originally.. its swapped to a 3500 with built internals, cam, wiseco pistons, arp headstuds blah blah swapped to a 5 spd w/ LSD, t3/t4 turbo

    Probably legit 100W Hella / Narva housings though. They look so badass
