THIS KIT INCLUDES THE FOLLOWING:
Complete Shortened Front Strut Housing
- Machined from seamless DOM 1026 steel alloy tubing. Heavy-duty sway
bar bracket welded on. Our design is much stronger and more rigid than
any of the aftermarket housings that are actually modified stock
housings, with skip-welded gussets and and all original brake line and
abs tabs retained.
Koni double adjustable strut - Externally adjustable rebound on top, externally adjustable compression underneath the strut.
Ground Control Threaded Sleeves -
This system is designed to eliminate stress risers caused by machining
notches into the strut housing. Unlike other companies that claim
superiority by cutting threads into a critical component of the
suspension, Ground Control uses engineering common sense to maximize the
strength of the suspension.
Ground Control Adjustable Spring Perch
- A unique design, which uses an Allen head bolt to clamp the single
threaded perch into the correct position. No secondary pieces are needed
to "jam" the threaded perch into position.
Koni┬┬áDouble Adjustable Rear Shocks
- Preadjusted to match rear spring rates using our shock dyno. The rear
shocks are custom valved for Ground Control, made by Koni in Holland
and are the rebound "top-adjust" version, which adjusts from inside the
trunk with no tools needed.
1 Pair front Camber Plates
Ground Control Racing Camber/Caster Plates
- More camber adjustment than stock, caster adjustment, aircraft
bearings, engraved with calibrated degrees, with stainless steel
reinforcement. Every component is anodized or plated, including
fasteners. Adds extra travel to avoid excessive bottoming out, this is a
very well engineered product. The stainless steel reinforcement
prevents electrolysis between the steel fender and the aluminum camber
Camber and caster are separately adjustable by sliding the mounts,
without removing any components from the car. The priority of this
design is to allow fast, repeatable alignment changes at the track.
The Ground Control camber plates feature two sets of bearings, a
proprietary bearing, made to our specs by Aurora in the USA, which
allows for articulation of the shock shaft. This spherical bearing is
very under stressed, as the Ground Control design does NOT support the
weight of the car on the spherical bearing. Instead, the weight of the
car is supported by a completely separate articulating needle bearing,
which is also manufactured for Ground Control in the USA.
4 Eibach ERS springs, any racing spring rate
Eibach Springs - Any spring rate
is available. Eibach springs are made on German machines both in the
USA and in Germany, however all Eibach springs have a lifetime guarantee
against sagging, rate change, or any manufacturing or material failure.
Lifetime guarantee. Compare!
4 Ground Control bump stops (made in Germany)
Ground Control Bump Stops - We
do not just ask you to reuse your stock bump. The stock bump stop is
designed for stock suspension we provide a bump stop designed to work
with our suspension. These are soft foam, same quality as OEM BMW parts,
but made to our specs in Germany. Our race bump stops are even
different than our street bump stops.
2 Rear Ride Height Adjusters
Ground Control Rear Ride Height Adjustment Kit
- Billet aluminum threaded adjusters bolt on top of the rear control
arm. The e36 M3 has a larger diameter rear axle than the standard e36,
so it is necessary for clearance to not have any portion of the adjuster
below the control arm.
All Ground Control products carry a lifetime guarantee against defects when
installed and maintained correctly. We strongly recommend that all of our products be installed by a competent, qualified mechanic.
