    Another "reminds me" worth sharing. For some reason KW recommends periodically recalibrating the damping. Supposed to run the damping screw to the limit. This "resets" the valving. Then back to...

    Always admired Manitou' aluminum creations. Sold one new (full suspension) back in the day early 90's after Fisher went under (for the record they were being force fed crap from Taiwan since Gary...

    Reminds me. Awhile back I installed new Koni's per recommended forum/public settings. We think it was over damped. It had a tendency to stack up due to high (but set mid range) rebound. But maybe...

    A lot more comp...maybe 3/4 towards full stop...i'm within a 1/4 turn range. Steep curve, very sensitive- might be at the bottom before the rate spikes (dyno sheet must be available somewhere)....

    That will probably help a bit. I think there's more to be had.

    Amsoil 5/50 Signature Series (AMR) since last spring. 5/40 Euro Classic (EFM) last 5 years prior. Partly because it's not the low SAPS 505.01 OE spec. Even if the oil was free I simply won't run...

    Supposedly mine were set per instructions. Far too bouncy. Crashed over everything. Not good for long term interior integrity....

    Not a surprise, unfortunately. The t-stat has a tough job on these cars. There are some OE equivalent ones that are a bit cooler.

    VERY unlikely the t-stat housing needs replacement. They are...

    I tried the exact same fitment and it was a decisive no-go on the front. It might have cleared the rear - can't remember. Tried the Pirelli P-Corsa's (60 treadwear!)- VERY wide for the size, made...

    275's won't handle well as they could/should or look good on 9" wheels. A slight compromise could be made using Japanese tires and 35 series (255-265/35's). Conti, Michelin and Vredestein are...

    If luck is on your side the cooling fans running is likely due to failing ECT tensor. It's located at the right rear of the intake housing (when looking from the front).

    If that doesn't solve...

    It's definitely not for everyone. Part of it is due to the exceedingly high expectations that are made based on seemingly unbelievable claims.
