Re: WEITEC cup Kits or H&R cup kits (DELI DANA VR6)

I just installed my weitec 40/40 this weekend......rides like crap!!! At slow speeds (20-40 mph) on rough roads It feels like I am in a rice rocket that someone cut the springs on and slammed it to the ground. It's not a big bounce really, kind of like trying to carry on a conversation while someone is hitting you in chest. At faster speeds and smooth roads seem great, the drop is perfect also. I am not happy overall, so any info from anyone would be helpfull to me also.

I also would love to know as I am in the same boat (h&R vs. Weitec) I am on a very tight budget but want a quality setup. I am leaning towards H&R but the price on a weitec kit is a whole lot cheaper. If some one can tell me wether weitec is quality or not I would definately apreciate it. thanks

Did you cut your bump stops?

thats definitely your problem, cutting bump stops is easy but a pain in the ass. you have to dis assemble everything and what i did was measure the drop and cut down off the bump stop. so you would cut 40mm off. not sure if this is the proper way or not but i haven't had a problem. good luck

Yup, its that simple. You're probably slamming the bumpstops on every small bump in the road, making the ride seem rough as hell.
I cant remember exactly, but I think I cut 2 notches off the front, 1 notch off the back. But that may be backwards. I may have cut 1 off the front and 2 off the rear..
This was on a WeitecGT 60/40 too.
