Default Turbo X Coilovers & Spacers

The time has come for me to take the plunge and lower my TX.

I love the car but it just looks silly on its standard springs.

I have been speaking with Maptun's UK main distributor for the last few months and decided to go with the Maptun coilover kit. I understand that they have had some advance on the system with a NEW coil over kit with adjustable shocks (like Koni) and with the correct rear springs to suit the 4wd system on the TX.

The new kits have adjustable damping with a 12 stage adjuster. Can drop the TX up to say 40mm.

My question is whether using spacers will affect the XWD??

I have searched the forum and see that somebody has mentioned using 15mm spacers.

Does anybody have any experience with spacers on a TX?

Thanks

Did you end up getting this? My suspension is toast and I need a replacement now.

Hi

No I haven't done it yet but I'm definitely going to get the maptun coilovers fitted which work with the Tx.

Probably a few months away and can't wait !

Go for it.
