Whenever you build a custom suspension you need PATIENCE. That is the key. I believe that I ran into more delays than I should have for several reasons:<font face="Verdana, Arial" size="2">How was TC's customer service? I've heard some people say that their turn around time is very slow and that a lot of the people there don't put much effort into keeping you informed.</font>
1. The guy that made Mike K's suspension is not the same guy that made mine. So the new suspension builder had to start almost from scratch. That took some time. Now he is fully aware of how to build this suspension. So if you want to build yours, it should be less of a hassle.
2. Koni ran out of parts and several of them were on back order. That caused delays as well. The parts had to be shipped from the Netherlands. Yikes.
3. I ordered my suspension during the race season. Big mistakes. That is when they are extremely busy. Order yours during the off season. During the winter months.
It took a long time as I outlined above. But Mike K. told me that this is the way it goes when you build a custom suspension. He told mr that once the "issues" were resolved the car will handle better than his Z. And he was right.<font face="Verdana, Arial" size="2">How long did the total time take for the suspension to be built and delivered (including the time it took to send in your front struts)?</font>
Forget the catalogue. You have to call them for the price. Get them to commit for a certain price and go from there. The Catalogue varies from reality.<font face="Verdana, Arial" size="2">Looking at the my TC catalog here, it lists the kit price for the 200SX SE-R as $2805.00. However, at the bottom is says:</font>
Yes and no. The GC gives you more travle, but with the shortened suspension you really do not need it. It used to be that the GC plates did not allow you to run an STB. But I heard that has changed. I am not sure though. Lately Rob had a problem with his GC's. I do not know how serius that is. But he did mention that. They are both good.<font face="Verdana, Arial" size="2">After reading your review, it sounds as if you would rather have chose the GC camber plates over the Stillen(Cusco) plates. Is that true?</font>
Mike K. told me to get it. At that time TC did not have such a set. Mike believes strongly in the thorington bearing. It does give you a great feel for the car. It is a must. I did not even mention the bearing to TC since my decision to run camber plates was a last minute decision.<font face="Verdana, Arial" size="2">Why did you choose the GC suspension hat over the one supplied by Truechoice? Do you find the thorington bearing to make a large difference in feel and overall performance? Did you ever try it compaired with the one supplied by Truechoice?</font>
I will fix that asap. thanks.<font face="Verdana, Arial" size="2">One last note, the rear adjuster pic needs some attention. Once you click to enlarge the pic, it links to the rear strut (large) pic.</font>
Yes I will. The TC guys have good customer service, especially if you talk to gerg about your issues with the suspension. When I sent my rear struts for a longer shaft, Greg replaced them for free and said "I just want to make you happy." I like that.<font face="Verdana, Arial" size="2">Anyways, thanks again for the great review of the system. If you had to do it all over again, would you go this route again? How would you compair it with the Shocktec suspension packages?</font>
But the key is to have miles and miles of PATIENCE and communicate CLEARLY with Greg. These things take time. Remember it is custom made.
