o2 Adjustable Racing Strut

Didn't want to highjack Paul's thread with this. A combo of things he was referring to - this is actually a CSL AlpinA racing strut, Bilstein inverted insert (non cartridge) with a threaded collar. The damper is 40.35mm and the OD of the strut is 52.35mm. You would expect that AlpinA would have used a narrow spring, however they didn't - standard diameter but only 7" long - and progressive (Not my color choice on the spring by the way, eventually will be black). Of course the spring perch's are wide to match the standard spring diameter. The shocks are currently set at 440 Compression 220 Rebound - that will knock your fillings out... for sure.

That is by far the coolest strut I have ever seen for the 02! I love those springs! My dream set up- with softer rates of course. Thanks Mark!

Thanks for the pictures. I love seeing the progress/parts from your car, very inspiring.

Do you have any pictures of the camber plates? I'm curious to see how they looked.

There is no camber plate, just the upper part of the spring perch and then the strut bearing which is solid aluminum. The Mounting point for the strut bearing is brought inwards and raised up by about an inch. The strut bearing has slots that allow it to slide back and forth in the mounting point thereby allowing you to adjust the amount of negative camber. At some point when I drop the suspension out I will take a photo of the strut bearing. This is an older image of the changes that were made to the mounting points - common for AlpinA, Schnitzer and GS cars
