Chuhatsu Plus MultiRoad lift springs

http://www.chuhatsu-plus.jp/86.html

In case anyone out there is looking to raise their cars for use in winter climates (or to build a budget rally car?), there are springs available that raise the car around 15-20mm from stock.

And no, this is not for everybody.

Interesting find. Finally i see some products comming for rally-ish use too. 99% of aftermarket seemed concentrating on tarmac tracking & lowering crowd.
I wonder though how/if these will work well with stock shocks, lift seems a bit on a high side. Imho it's more interesting to try out TRD rally coilovers (MS260-18004 + MS250-18004 ) instead, which lift just 10mm, but probably better match changed springs with extra travel. Or lift spacers, that doesn't change anything to shocks/springs themselves, just mount them lower.

No idea but I can arrange someone to test them out, should they be interested.

These are of very little use in the US...

I'd be interested in trying them out through the winter in Chicago and in some winter rallyx up in Wisconsin. My only holdup would be the time/costs of installing them, getting the alignment done, and the uninstalling and getting a new alignment again in the spring.

Some more pics:




Actual springs are coated in a thick black paint for maximum rust prevention. Comes with longer bump stops as well.

If you have access to a spare set of stock shocks/upper mounts, I can provide the springs (free of charge). Send me a PM if you are serious about this.

If he doesn't jump on this I would, would love to drive this winter around Alaska in a lifted BRZ!

Are the rates similar to OEM? I'd be interested in a set of these with OEM struts if the rates were close to stock, ort better yet, a tad softer for winter use...

Waiting on a reply from Japan. Their site didn't list specific information.

Any ideas why you would use their longer bumpstops rather than having more travel before hitting the stock bumpstops?

I'm taking a guess and speculating that this has to do with preventing excessive amounts of suspension travel with stock arms.

The last thing you want is for the suspension to compress a lot and your handling is completely off because the alignment has changed so much.

Hmm, but in such case these longer springs + longer bumpstops seem will be like stock springs + topmount lift spacers in what user gets as ground clearance and how suspension will behave, or i am wrong? :/
