KiDo Racing Coilovers - Fitting and prices

Postby XT_for_me » Sat Jul 02, 2011 10:12 pm

KiDo Racing Coilovers are manufactured in Taiwan to a race proven design. Attention to detail and careful selection of spring rates for each specific model of car ensures a good ride and excellent handling compromise. Unlike most competitive products which offer only 25 or 30 levels of shock absorber adjustment, KiDo Racing coilovers have 40 levels of adjustment. All coilovers sold by KiDo Racing also have Pillow Ball Top Mounts for greater precision on turn in and better steering control and feedback. The manufacturing plant is ISO 9001 certified for quality assurance, and all coilovers purchased through KiDo in Australia are covered by a 12 month warranty.

FITTING:
KiDo Racing has coilovers to suit a wide range of makes and models so if you are interested in something other than Subaru please call or email us.

These Coilover kits are available in 2 specifications, Racing and Street. The difference is not in spring rates but in the damper oil. Please ask for more information on rates to suit your specific model.

Subaru Liberty (Sedan & Wagon): All models 1989 on. These should also fit Outback but have not been tested.
Subaru Impreza (including WRX & STI): All models 1997 on.
Subaru Forester (N/A & Turbo): All models 1997 on.

PRICING:
We have one price for all models. Pricing does NOT include freight so please check with us for shipping costs. Pickup is available from our warehouse by arrangement. We can provide freight with E-Go, shipping Depot to Depot or Depot to address. We use the Gisborne VIC. depot. If you prefer to arrange your own freight that is OK too.

Price: This is a special price for members here. If you contact us by phone or email please advise that you are a member here to get this price. $1184.00 (includes GST) A tax invoice will be issued.

PRICE UPDATE:-

Due to the performance of the Aussie dollar against the US dollar we are able to reduce the price to $1040.00 WOOT :D



Also, we have some video of KiDi Coilover testing in Japan:

ExRex is a member of OzFoz and he posted the following in his Gallery thread there.

ExRex wrote:After a couple of days of city driving, I finally got out for a decent drive in the hills to test out the new KiDo coilovers and Whiteline Roll Centre Adjust and I'm blown away at how well the Foz handles now :o

Here's my quick take on the new setup and performance, mostly for my own record:
- Front is now 85mm lower, rear is 60mm lower
- For everyday driving I'm running the fronts 10 clicks from soft, rears 20 clicks (40 clicks available)
- Tried 30 clicks rear, 20 clicks front in the hills and it's another whole step up again in response and feel, but too rigid for my everyday
- They are so much quieter than stock when it comes to small bumps, manholes, surface changes and road noise in general
- The ride in the city is very comfortable, but definitely stiffer when weighted or over larger bumps, humps, etc.
- Body roll is all but gone now
- Power and braking response 'feels' much quicker as it is no longer dulled by the stock suspension
- Far less oversteer when backing off power in turns which used to be quite severe
- Great turn in and predictability, consistent steering through corners when on and off the throttle
- One small tyre rub on front right on extreme hard corner with lots grip and camber (not a concern at all)
- Absolutely no creaks or groans from the suspension so far
[EDIT] Forgot to mention, the KiDo setup is 18.2kg total, which is 15.6kg lighter than the stock suspension at 33.8kg total!

Thanks to Bryce (XT_for_me) at KiDo Racing for supplying the suspension - I'm well stoked with the results!

A quick video 'testing' on a favourite stretch of road... :thumbs:

Hi Simon,
Currently they are $1040.00 plus delivery which is $15 around Melbourne.

I am watching the fall of the dollar against the USD and thinking they might have to go up soon however.

Do these have a range of spare parts Bryce?

Or are these purely replaceable items?

Bryce,
The price you have listed in the first post, is that the most current price for KiDo coilovers?

Yeah Simon, the price is still $1040 plus freight. At this stage I am absorbing the Carbon Tax but that might not last.
